Hi! there,

Whenever I start Word, it opens it but I get a prompt Missing shortcut that says Windows is missing the PDFMAKER and it goes away after I press cancel 3 times. Can you tell me how to get rid of this prompt.

Thanks,

Zak

It is the toolbar for Adobe PDF.  

Open Word,  Go to View pull-down,  Toolbars, Customize

Select the Adobe PDF toolbar and Delete it.
