What Is a Mini Toolbar?

If you are using Microsoft Windows and any of the software on the Microsoft Office Package, a mini toolbar is the smaller version of the full toolbar that is available for formatting on any of the applications.

The toolbar that appears when you highlight certain text, move the cursor or the mouse over the highlighted text or right click on the highlighted text is what is called a mini toolbar. Many features of the main formatting tool bars are available on the mini toolbars including font type, font size, increase font size, decrease font size, underline, center text (alignment), highlight text, font color, format painter, increase indent of text, decrease indent of text, bold and italics.
