    I was running office standard for windows 95, I then upgraded to Windows XP and Office 2000, I now have an Office Shortcut Bar on my desktop and want to get rid of it permanently, how do I do that? I can hide it or exit but then it comes back when I turn on my computer again. I even tried reinstalling and deselecting the option when I chose the components to install and it's still there. Any suggestions on how I can get tird of it permanently, it's irritating.

    Hi Maxine,
    Try going to start, run, type msconfig
    Hit OK. Click on startup tab at top. See if the shortcut bar is listed . uncheck it. While you are there uncheck Office startup and Fast Find thee are major resource hogs

    Maxine, delete the entry in Start Menu, Programs, Startup.

    When installing Office, by default, it adds an Office Startup file in here.

    Click the corner Icon on the Shortcut bar - when you have the option to close - do you get query to 'show shortcut bar when you restart?' If so, say no.
    If not it's poss to remove Shortcut bar even if Office is in Startup grp.
