The Toolbar is the section located at the top of the editor window that contains the menu buttons. The buttons give you access to various functions of CKEditor. They are grouped according to their function and include both simple operations (like basic text formatting) and more advanced features (like inserting media or forms).
This is what the editor's toolbar looks like:
The CKEditor Toolbar
The CKEditor's toolbar buttons are illustrated with meaningful icons. If, however, you are not sure what functions they perform, hover the mouse cursor over the buttons to see a tooltip with the name of the function.
In order to perform an operation assigned to a button, click the button once.
Some of the buttons serve as placeholders giving you access to further options placed in a drop-down list. They are easily recognizable thanks to a small icon on their right. Clicking the name or the arrow icon of such button expands the list and lets you choose one of its options via a left mouse button or a Tab key. To hide the list use the Esc key or click anywhere in the browser window.
To save the screen estate, the toolbar may be collapsed by pressing the button. In order to return to the full toolbar view, press the button again.
