Pesky Reviewing Toolbar

by Andrea B. / June 13, 2004 7:42 PM PDT

I keep turning off my reviewing toolbar every time I open Word, and every time I open it again, it's back!!! I don't need that thing often enough to waste my monitor space on a regular basis - how can I get rid of it for good until I want to see it?

I right-click in the toolbar section and uncheck the "reviewing" toolbar.

Yes, that's the way to do it, indeed.

Maybe this settings somehow got stuck into Locate that file in Windows Explorer and then make a choice of:
1. Open it, turn the toolbar off, and save it again (as a profile).
2. Delete it with Explorer. Word will create a new default one. However, you will lose your changes (and macro's) in it (although, of course, you can save the macro's somewhere else). That's why I would start with #1. If that doesn't help, try #2.

If the toolbar returns with a new, try (successively!)
3. Repair Office from the Office Setup.
4. Uninstall Word, then reinstall it.
5. Between uninstalling and reinstalling, use the Office Removal Wizard (should be on the CD, or can be downloaded somewhere from Microsoft).
You'll need an CD with Word or Office to do 3 through 5.

Good luck.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
