  • Hi Selam Alazar,

    As we are not able to access the minibar so we are not able to find the location of it on the screen using VSTO.

    but if you have necessary to achieve this requirement then you can try to use third party tools.

    please visit link below.

    RibbonMiniToolbar Class

    with the help of that you can access the members, constructor ,properties ,events , methods of the Mini toolbar.

    so you can try to find something to get the location of Mini toolbar.

  • Hi Selam Alazar,

    I try to find a way to get access of mini toolbar. but unfortunately there is no way to access / customize it using VBA or C# or VSTO.

    There is no any method or property is available to fulfil your requirement.

    you can add your customization in context menu or in QAT. There is a way to customize it.

    the other thing you can do that all the commands and options that you can see in the minibar is separately available to use. so if you want to use that you can customize it separately.

    but you can't customize the mini toolbar itself.

    if you think that mini toolbar should be customizable then please give your Feedback to Word User Voice.

    if they get enough feedbacks regarding this feature then after they can consider to add this feature in new version.

    please visit the link below to give feedback.
