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.

The only way that I know would be to create a user account in windows for every person in your class.  User accounts save your personal settings for you desktop and every other setting that the user wants to changes.  Just make sure that nobody else is administraters, but you.

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!
