1. Move your Quick Access bar to below the ribbon bars. That way it will hold a lot more buttons than if it is kept above the ribbon bars.

2. To add buttons to the Quick Access bar, right-click on an existing button and select add to Quick Access bar. To remove a button from the Quick Access bar, right-click on the button and select remove.

3. Some of the most useful buttons to add to the Quick Access bar are these:

  • Scroll to task
  • Print Preview
  • Outline
  • Clear Filter
  • Clear Group
  • Publish (for Project Server users only)
  • Publish as .PDF
  • Timescale
  • Open

4. The best keystroke shortcut ever is F3, which will clear any applied filter.
