 for toolbar
From The Free On-line Dictionary of Computing (30 December 2018) :

      A common graphical user interface
     component, consisting of a permanently visible row of button
     icons that, when clicked with the mouse, cause the program
     to perform some action such as printing the current document
     or changing the mode of operation.
     The toolbar buttons often invoke functions accessible via
     menus but they are easier to use since they are permanently
     visible.  A typical use would be in a paint program where
     the toolbar allows the users to select one of the various
     painting "tools" - brush, pencil, bucket etc.
     Some application programs under some operating systems may
     allow the user to customise the functions accessible via
     toolbars; in others, the choice is fixed by the programmer.
