Office toolbar

Can someone tell me how to get my office toolbar just to show the buttons and no window on the desktop
I used to have just a neat row of buttons.
I used to get this by simply moving the office toolbar window to a corner but I have just got a new computer and it will not work.
It either puts a bar the whole width or length of the desktop or remains in a window with a minimised icon on the task bar.

please help

I think that's what it does in modern versions of Office.

In the olden days (like Word 6) you would have a "floating toolbar" that did not move. We've moved on since then and an Office toolbar takes up a whole side of your desktop. I have mine turned off, for obvious reasons.

Jester2K II. I just sent an email saying, put the Office cd in, go as if to do a install, when the Office setup window comes up, goto ADD/REMOVE FEATURES. Go down to Office tool bar, click on the + sign, go down to Office shortcut box, make sure there isn't a red X in the box. Click the box and click on Run from my computer. Sorry to have upset you. Shaun.
