Question Location of settings for Office Shortcut Bar
I'm setting up my new PC, which is running Win 2000. When I first got it, I logged in as administrator and started installing software and personalizing my configuration. Then I got smart.

I added myself as a new user in the Administrators groups, then started logging in as me rather than the default. Unfortunately I also realized at that point that the personal settings I had established so far were saved under Administrator. No problem: I was able to find and move a lot of the things I had done into the All Users profile, so I didn't have to recreate everything I had done.

However, I cannot find the place where the settings for the Office Shortcut Bar are saved. I did quite a bit to customize it, and would like to be able to recover what I did rather than start from scratch. Can anyone tell me where this file is kept? Is it in an .ini file or something?

That depends on the version of Office. Things changed between Office 97 and Office 2000.

What version?
