<note style="warning">
<p>These steps are for tech savvy users. These steps are not suitable for average users.</p>
<p><app>Evolution</app> offers no graphical interface to customize its tool bars or items in menus.</p>
<p>Advanced users can experiment by exploring and editing the corresponding system-wide file(s) under <file>$PREFIX/share/evolution/ui/</file>.</p>
<p>Copy those files with the file ending <file>.ui</file> which you would like to modify to your personal configuration folder <file>$HOME/.config/evolution/ui/</file>.
Modify the files in your personal configuration folder so the next <app>Evolution</app> software update will not overwrite your changes.</p>
<p>The modified files will be used if the <code>evolution-ui-version</code> attribute of the root <code>ui</code> element matches the version of the default files provided by <app>Evolution</app>.</p>
