    Powerpoint 2002/XP

    Do you know if a registry key exists to reset the Powerpoint Standard toolbar?

    Many thanks

    I believe the settings are not stored in the registry but in PPT10.pcb. User specific and probably in APPDATA\Microsoft\PowerPoint

    Rename this file and it should be replaced with the default file

    The file mentioned by JohnWilson is the one I referred to in your other recent topic.

    Keep in mind that renaming, moving or deleting the .pcb file will reset ALL toolbars and menus, not just the Standard toolbar.

    thank you Hans and John

    The document management system is effecting the load order of our templates.
    Therefore on powerpoint startup the "New" button on the Standard toolbar calls the default template instead of our template (which was working in the previous document management system).

    Each time powerpoint startsup I was wanting to reset the Standard toolbar.

    When I manually reset the Standard toolbar, the "New" button then calls our template.


    Ive created an add-in to load on Powerpoint however it appoear to be working

    heres my code...


    Sub Auto_Open()

    CommandBars("Standard") .Reset

    strPath = GetDefaultTemplatePath & "blank.pot"
    Presentations.Open FileName:=strPath, untitled:=msoTrue

    end sub
