Word Tip of the Day

Display toolbars and menus in full (Word 2000/2002)

By default, the Standard and Formatting toolbars in Word 2000 and Word 2002 share one row. Although consolidating these two common toolbars frees up extra space in the document window, it also makes it more difficult to access these toolbars' buttons, since many of them end up hidden from view. The menu bar offers a similar behavior, displaying only those menu commands you use most frequently and hiding the rest from view. If you'd always prefer to view Word's toolbars and menus in full, you can easily change both these default behaviors. Choose Tools | Customize, then click on the Options tab. In the Personalized Menus And Toolbars panel, do the following:

In Word 2000, clear the following check boxes: - Standard And Formatting Toolbars Share One Row - Menus Show Recently Used Commands

In Word 2002, select the following check boxes: - Show Standard And Formatting Toolbars On Two Rows - Always Show Full Menus

When you've finished, click Close. From now on, Word displays the Standard and Formatting toolbars on separate rows, enabling you to view more of their buttons at once. In addition, when you access a menu from the menu bar, Word displays all the menu's commands at once.
