Step 17 – Customizing Your Toolbar

Let’s face it, in order to operate your avatar and make you feel like you have complete physical control in your virtual world environment, we need to have things at our fingertips.  Sometimes the fun is all about timing, isn’t it? For instance, if something happens that excites you and your avatar does an immediate back-flip, it is much more effective than five minutes later!

We addressed the Toolbar in an Extra Credit Tip earlier for those that were eager to learn everything.  We bring it up again here because you have now experienced a lot of the basic functions.  Take a minute and decide which options you want to be only a click away and personalize your viewer console now.


OPEN YOUR TOOLBAR BUTTON PANEL


Right-click on any toolbar button and choose TOOLBAR BUTTONS.

TO ADD a TOOLBAR BUTTON to your toolbar just drag it from the Toolbar Control Panel to the TOOLBAR.

The ones that are grayed out are already on your toolbar. We’ve covered the basic options throughout the lessons in this course. If you aren’t sure what a button does, try it!  Part of the virtual world fun is…you can’t kill yourself. So be daring and try new things and enjoy that accidental but dramatic fall off the rooftop of a building!

TO REMOVE a  TOOLBAR BUTTON

Right-click the button and choose “Remove this button” If you don’t use the button often, get rid of it. You can always add it back if you change your mind.


LOCATION OF TOOLBAR


You can drag and drop Toolbar Buttons to the left side, right side or bottom center. Choose one location or use them all, whatever works best for you!

Using Your Toolbar to Control Your Windows


One thing is sure. If you don’t get used to closing windows to help you look better, get there and interact..you will never get to see what is actually happening in the virtual world in front of you!  By learning to use your TOOLBAR to its full advantage you can easily click panels open and shut from the TOOLBAR.

Closing your windows from the toolbar is faster and easier once you get used to it!
