Is it possible to lock toolbars in place on the page under the Menu bar.

I don't want these toolbars to be draggable or resizeable as it is pain to repostion them for different users.

To dock any toolbar underneath the menu bars, just double-click its title bar.

That's true for ALL menu bars in ALL Windows apps...
And if they're default toolbars, they'll snap back into their default location too.
Thanks for the grade, d!
