WORD 2003 - unwanted toolbars on opening

  novis 16:47 05 Jul 07


When I open Word the following toolbars open as well:

Exit Design Mode + Cotrol Bar

I untick the boxes them in the Customise log but they continue to appear whenever I open Word. How to I tame them into submission?

You need to open the Normal.dot file then remove the toolbars. Now, save the Normal.dot file and that should work.

I manged to partially resolve the problem - except that for no accountable reason these toolbars pop up while I am working on a document.

Any ideas?

Open the Normal.dot file from Windows Explorer (when Word is closed). Then, make your changes and exit. It will ask if you want to save, click yes.
