Lost Menus in Word

  lazanda 10:28 22 Jan 2004

Hi, I am using office 2k pro and all the menus have disappeared from the top in word, I have tried everything even an uninstall/reinstall of office and they dont come back,

Top of the screen starts with 'file' 'edit' 'view' etc and no icons such as save, cut copy paste etc are to be seen.

any ideas ?

These toolbars have to be selected. Go to VIEW, select TOOLBARS and click on any of the available choices. STANDARD will give you CUT, COPY, PASTE etc.

simply right click on the Menu bar (File, Edit etc etc) in a blank space and select the ones you want!

I dont even have file,edit, etc etc. I have nothing at all.

If you move the mouse to the top of the page do File, Edit etc appear?

If you press Alt + F do you get the File dropdown menu?

Have you tried deleting normal.dot from your templates and then restarting Word? It will rebuild normal.dot for you and everything should reappear !
