    Word Icon in document (2000/SR1)

    Why is there no Word Icon in the top left hand corner of a document in Word 2000/SR1? In previous versions you could use this to click on to close an open document. In Excel 2000/SR1, the Excel Icon is still available! Can anyone explain if this Icon can be added to Word 2000/SR1?

    I haven't loaded SR-1, but I'm curious, do you mean this icon?

    Thanks for your reply. No. I mean the Word Icon in the tool bar, before "File". In Word 97, this is where it appeared and if you right clicked on it, you could: save, save as, close etc. If you double clicked on it, you could close an open document. It was a very useful icon. The top icon in you clip will close the program altogether. Any suggestions? Thanks, Ian.

    Hi rienian,

    I believe you are thinking of Word 6 (or perhaps Word 95 - it was so short-lived for me that I don't remember specifically) rather than 97. That was when you could right-click on the Title bar or control menu and the shortcut menu had Open, Save As, etc.

    However you can Customize modify your Toolbars and add any command that you want. Just right-click any toolbar and select Customize. On the Commands tab you'll find the commands broke down by Category. The category you want would be File. There you'll see the various commands on the right. Just drag/drop those you want to the location of your choice.

    Ian,

    The icon in the menu bar in Word 97 was the icon for the control menu for the document window, and the icon in the title bar above it was for the control menu for the Word (application) window.

    In Word 2000, as we all know and hate, each document is open in a 'separate' window, and the icon at the far left of the title bar is the icon for the control menu for the window. The precise behaviour you get from the control menu depends on whether you have one document window open, or several. With a single document open, the Close command, for example, will close Word; with several documents open, the Close command will close the one document. (At the same time, we have had to re-learn the effects of Alt+F4 in Word 2000: in Word 97 it always closed the application; in Word 2000 it does when only one document is open, but not when several documents are open.)

    At the other end of the title bar and menu bar, the Microsoft folk seem to have half-realized what a fist they were making of things: when you have only one document open in Word 2000 there is a lone X button at the right of the menu bar, which allows you to close the document without closing Word; with more than one document open the X button on the menu bar has vanished.
