MS Office icons

  geedad 18:11 31 Dec 2007

I am using MS Office 97 Pro. At one time, it loaded up without the annoying icons displayed on the right of the screen.
I can minimize this then cancel it and it goes away but only until the next time I start the PC.
I find it more a nuisance than an advantage.
Can I permanently delete this?

When you close it (don't minimize it) - if I remember rightly, there is a message appears, and a tick box, that allows it to be permanently deleted, or to come back on a restart.

I remember something similar to what DieSse says but just to stop it opening when Windows starts click here

When I clicked on the control box in the left upper-most corner of the Office Shortcut Bar, then clicked on EXIT, I had a message which asked if I wanted the S/C Bar to not show when I next started Windows. So I didn't complete your suggestion, but next time I Start, I will let you know if it has gone forever!
Thanks for youe contributions.

It worked as I stated in my last posting. Thanks for pointing me in the right direction.
