I recently delivered a webcast to MPUG members in which I referenced my Quick Access Toolbar sample. I find it extremely helpful for better navigation and resource management with Microsoft Project 2010. My Quick Access Toolbar will allow you to start your own standard toolbar, which you can share with your entire organization. Just send them this link.
