It would be nice to have a link to the Customizer in the WordPress admin bar. This will help quickly accessing that page.

This link is already visible on the frontend, but is absent in the admin.

  • Component changed from Administration to Toolbar
  • Version changed from trunk to 4.3

r33147 (#32945) removed the Customize link from the admin; it was originally intended for the front end only.

If the link is available in the admin for single sites again, it still would not fit as well in network admin.
