    For some reason Word2K has dropped several of the icons in the Toolbar & replaced them with others ... for example, the sheet of paper with one corner turned down, open a folder, 3.5" disk "save" icon, the window which shows what size the page is in percent, and a few more have vanished, and one of the 'new' icons is for the "Highlight Marker" which was NOT there till this problem erupted...
    HOW do I get the Default toolbar back! By default I mean the one that is normally set up when Windows 2000 is loaded onto the HD for the first time?
    Will I have to delete, then reload W2K? :( AND, if so can the "My Documents" folder and ALL contents be saved to a CD? I have about 15Mb of items in that folder I don't want to lose...

    Go to View, Toolbars, and make sure that Standard and Formatting have a check mark by them, and no others, unless you use them specifically.

    The highlight marker is on the Formatting toolbar

    At any time you can also right click while on the toolbar which brings up the list of toolbars you want to show. At the bottom is "customize" which will allow you to specify any individual icon you want to add or remove to an existing toolbar. While in the "Customize" dialog box you can click and drag any item found in the "Command" tab to the tool bar and it will be added. Similarly you can drag any item in your toolbar back down to the command items and remove it from the toolbar.
