Finding Hidden Tools
Let's take a closer look at that toolbar because you might have noticed that next to each of the tools or most of the tools, there's a little triangle there. That's a disclosure triangle and that show us a bunch of hidden tools. So let me just go and zoom in really fast on these tools here. And you can see that some of them, most of them have a little triangle next to it. That's called a disclosure triangle. What that does is if you click the tool and hold down the mouse or the pen, you will see extra tools. you will see extra tools. These are tools that are hidden. The reason that they're not all out there is because then the tool bar would be so big that you would just have no room for anything else. And so, any tool that has a little triangle, it means that if you click and hold, you'll see more tools pop out. Those are the hidden tools there. Now, also notice, that on the right hand side, there is a little letter there. So this one says W, if I click and hold this one, it says L, i...
f I click this one, it says M. That is the shortcut key. And so, you can go through the different tools by clicking the shortcut key. So let me show you that. So, let's go here to this one right here. We got three different tools. So, if I am on this and I hit W, that tool shows up. So, if I am on this and I hit W, that tool shows up. I wanna get to the next tool in this little menu here. Either I can click and hold and select it or what I can do is if I hit Shift + W, or what I can do is if I hit Shift + W, it goes to the next tool. Shift + W, it goes to the next tool. Shift + W. So it cycles through that by hitting the shortcut key. And then whatever the last tool is that you selected, If you just hit the shortcut key, that's what it goes to. So let me show you that again. So I've got, let's say the magic wand tool and then I hit Shift + W, now I've got the selection tool. If I go up here to this tool right here, and now I hit W, it goes back to the last tool that I selected. So all of these tools over here have, or most all of them have different hidden tools and a shortcut key that's associated with that. This one doesn't have a little disclosure triangle so it's just one tool. So let me zoom out really fast. So take a closer look on your computer. You'll see all these different tools that have multiple tools underneath them. Those are the hidden tools. Now, the other thing that we have at the very bottom of the screen here is this little ellipsis here. If I click that and then click edit toolbar, you can customize the tool that show up in your toolbar.
