What is ransomware and how do I protect my PC from WannaCry?
I’ve just installed Office 2007 and, like everyone, I will now spend years trying to find commands!
However, in spite of some searching and looking for help, there are two things (so far!) I can’t see reference to anywhere (I'm only using PowerPoint so far, but I guess the answers will be the same everywhere).
So how can I:
1) Edit, or change the icons I use to run VBA (so far my code works, very early days yet!). Under “Customise quick access toolbar” I can right click a command and chose “Modify Button” but this only shows a few symbols. I want my own, and in the past there was a button designer where you could, pixel by pixel, do your own.
2) Add a favourite file location in “Open”. If I press the round Office icon and select “Open”, a window opens and on the right hand side there are five pretty useless pre-set file locations (e.g. “My documents”).
In Office 2003, under tools, you could add a folder into this list. Tools in Office 2007 does not seem to have this, so where is it?
Pine Man: Thanks. Yes I had forgotten about the default location setting (and would not have found it even if I'd remembered!). This is one step forward as I can direct it much further down the file path now.
However, I would still like to know the answer to my original question as I have many locations, and clicking on the left hand locators is extremely useful.
For Office 2000 I remember editing the registry to add extra locators. I can't believe I will have to resort to this for 2007....!!!!
Arghh...I’ve found how to do (2). It’s easy when you know how. It’s not easy when you Google the wrong terms!!!
For anyone who wants to do the same: click here
Any thoughts on the button editor?
(Thinks, what else could I Google?!).
Perhaps you should try this click here and let us know how you get on.
Thanks for the link VoG (sorry for delay in replying).
Given that you are someone that certainly knows a bit about Office, it bothers me a bit that you haven’t just said “press xyz”. I wonder if this is a useful feature that M$ has removed?!
Anyway, when I get a chance, I’ll have a look at the stuff in the link. It would be a bit annoying if you need extra software to “upgrade” the latest version of Office to make it do what earlier versions did straight out of the box.
As far as I know the facility for editing button images has been removed in Office 2007.
When I go to customise an icon for a macro in Excel I get a choice of about 200 icons which is sufficient for me. I haven't tried in Word or Powerpoint because I very rarely use macros with those programs.
Other handy features like floating toolbars have also disappeared - progress I suppose...
