My toolbars keep moving down when I close Word. If I fix them the next time I open Word they are the moved down again. I am running Win2000 prof. This also happens in other programs as well. Does anyone know how to fix this?

Hi Jmaloy,

Are you setting your tollbars in a customized way ?

In other words, do you loose your custom settings everytime you close Word ?

Does this problem just ocur with Office apps or other apps as well?


For the rest of this comment, I am also assuming that you're using Office 2000 also.

This one's a bit of a shot in the dark, but it may be a symptom:

These may also be of help:

If it applies to other apps besides Office apps with Win2000, then there's something wrong with your Windows installation/settings for sure. Try posting a comment in the Windows forum if that's the case. I couldn't find anything relevant on the MS site, I'm afraid.

I ran into a situation like this with Word and Outlook. They both use the same base template for word if outlook is set to use word as an email editor.
If you use outlook to read email it will change the layout for the toolbars in word. If you then reload word you will see that change.

The solution is to either not use word as your email editor, or make sure that outlook doesn't use the same toolbars as word.

I have had more success with the first method than the second.

Good luck.
