    I use Win98 at work. One day I turned on the PC and the MS Office shortcut bar, which I have displayed as small buttons on the top of the desktop, did not display the icons properly. I can no longer see which is Word, Excel, Access etc. Of course if I know the order they appear but I would like to have them showing their correct icons. I closed the shortcut bar down, went to Program FIles/MS Office/MS Office Shortcut Bar and double clicked to "reinstall" the shortcut bar. It reappeared with the same mangled look as before. What on earth has made it so cranky?? Rebooting does not change the bad look.

    Thanks for your help in advance.

    Try right clicking on an empty area of the shortcut bar and then click on Refresh.

    NiteHawk, thank you. So lovely when you know such smart little tricks. If only my mind had a Refresh option!
