I have a Word 2007 document in which the status bar (that bar that goes along the bottom of the screen which contains the zoom slider, the page number and other misc. things) is not present. How do I make it appear?

Try starting Word in safe mode (Hold ctrl key and start Word. Select Yes for safe mode.) See if the status bar is present there. Then close and start Word normally. Status bar should be present.

See if you are in full screen view.
If so go to view and adjust your view in to print view.
If Flysters method didnt work, then reinstall the word will definitely bring your status bar back.

Have a look at this (you'll need to adjust a couple of things for Word 2007; start with step 2):

Run this macro to toggle Status Bar (please confirm it's OK):

Sub StatusBar_Toggle()

    ActiveDocument.CommandBars("Status Bar").Visible = Not ActiveDocument.CommandBars("Status Bar").Visible

End Sub

Works for me.

Sub StatusBar_Toggle()
 
    ActiveDocument.CommandBars("Status Bar").Visible = Not ActiveDocument.CommandBars("Status Bar").Visible
 
End Sub

Open in new window
