    How to add separators between buttons in Visual Studio toolbars

    How is it that I forget the steps to accomplish such a simple task so frequently? Do I have a poor memory, or is Visual Studio's method for adding separators beween toolbar buttons just plain unintuitive? I blame Visual Studio.

    Here are the steps to once and for all prevent me from forgetting

    1. Open the Customize dialog box for toolbars.
    2. select a button that is already present in the toolbar. The Modify Selection drop-down button should become enabled.
    3. Its pop-up menu has a Begin a Group check item at the bottom; use that to insert a separator before the button.

    Add separator to Visual Studio toolbar

    In VS2008, you can also right-click a button in the menu item and go to Insert > Separator and drag it to the required possition. It naturally goes above the button you originally clicked on, but as I said, can be dragged.

     I somehow figured this out as I was trying to follow your post :)

    To add separators between buttons in an application that you are creating, take the following steps:

    1.  Right click the icon on the toolbar to the right of where you want to place the separator.

    2. Select Insert from the drop-down menu, and then select Separator.
