Customizing Toolbox

You can customize Toolbox content from Customize Hardware page of Toolbox Settings by copying, pasting, deleting, and renaming Toolbox folders, similar to how you modify folders in Windows.

In this example, you create a new Toolbox folder, add content to it, rename content, and delete content from it.

Your Toolbox administrator might have already customized Toolbox for you. Consult your Toolbox administrator before you perform this exercise.

First, open Toolbox Settings to begin hardware customization.

To open Toolbox Settings, click SolidWorks version > SolidWorks Tools > Toolbox Settings from the list of all programs on the Start menu of your computer.

  • From Toolbox Settings, click 2 - Customize Your Hardware.
