A floating toolbar is a very human feature in Word2010, and when the text in the Word2010 document is selected, a semitransparent State floating toolbar appears if the user moves the mouse pointer to the right of the selected text. The toolbar contains commands for formatting text, such as setting the font, font size, color, center alignment, and so on. Moving the mouse pointer over the floating toolbar will make the commands fully visible, allowing you to easily format the text, as shown in Figure 1.
