How exactly do you mean 'locked'?

The toolbars are adjustable and can be dragged here and there; can you lock them so that they are not drag-able?

I don't think you can - the ability to drag them is actually a useful feature if you want to add a new toolbar at some time - if they were locked, you might have a most of your screen with layered toolbars - instead, you can line them up to fit better.

Omit my previous post. The issue is that you can customize the toolbars by adding buttons or dragging toolbars, and when you save a document and then reopen it, the toolbars will be the way they were when you saved it. So far, so good. But when you open a new Word document, the toolbar layout reverts back to the default setting. Is there a way to customize the toolbars so that they are the same whenever you open any new or other documents, without neccessarily going in and messing with the template?

They should stay the way you left them until changed again. Are you opening a template?
