I want to add the strike-through icon there

The likely place is File -> Options. But I could only find options to change the ribbon along the top. So Im guessing its not possible. – Doomsknight Mar 11 '12 at 15:26

Like in Office 2007, it seems that the Mini Toolbar is not customizable by users.

From here:

Q: Within Word I want to edit or change the commands in the hovering mini toolbar, i.e. I would like to add an UNDERLINE feature; Multilevel List feature; and more Align Text options.

This mini toolbar is not user-customizable.

From here:

If you're referring to the toolbar that displays
when you hover on selected text the short answer is no. Search this group &
you will find reference to 3rd-party add-ins as well as means by which to
import toolbars from earlier versions of Word. Whether any provide
customizing of the mini I can't recall.

Sadly, it is not customizable. But you do know, don't you, that there are
built-in keyboard shortcuts for all but one of the commands you list?

Underline: Ctrl+U
Cut: Ctrl+X
Copy: Ctrl+C
Paste: Ctrl+V
Align Left: Ctrl+L
Align Right: Ctrl+R
Justify: Ctrl+J
(and Center: Ctrl+E)

+1: keyboard short cuts. Or add it to the Quick access bar, which are accessible with Alt+ 1,2,3,4 . . . – surfasb Mar 12 '12 at 3:48
hit Ctrl+Space to remove the formatting and convert the selection into plain text. – Guillaume Combot Oct 25 '14 at 7:39
