How to Tear an AutoShapes Palette Away (Excel, PowerPoint, Word)

You can keep an AutoShapes palette handy by tearing it away from the Drawing toolbar and letting it float on your screen. Here's how:

  1. Click AutoShapes on the Drawing toolbar.

  2. Find the palette that contains the shape you want to draw.

  3. Grab the bar at the top of the palette and drag it away from the menu.

When you want to put it back, just click the X in the upper right corner of the torn-off palette.
