Customizing Office 2007 and the Quick Access Toolbar

Q: How do I add or move command where I want them on the Ribbon?

A: You can't. You can, however, add items to the Quick Access Toolbar, move the Quick Access Toolbar to a more convenient location, and/or minimize the Ribbon for some more screen real estate.
