My son was using Word and a problem occured. Essentially on the main command line, the standard file and edit (among others) coomands have dissapeared. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling Office 2000 with no luck. Any ideas? Is a template stored elsewhere that I have to change?

Start Word.

On the Tools menu, click Customize.

Click the Toolbars tab.

In the Toolbars list, click Menu Bar. Do not clear the Menu Bar check box.

Click Reset. The following message is displayed in the Reset Toolbar dialog box:

Reset changes made to 'Menu Bar' toolbar for:

Click OK, and then click Close.

P.S. If the Tools menu is missing, obviously that won't work!

If that is the case, close Word, search for NORMAL.DOT and delete it. Restart Word.

Tool menu was one that was still there and thanks that seems to have put things back to normal.
