    I'm assuming that items on the Office menu are handled the same way as items on the ribbon, but that's a guess. If you search here for ribbon customization tools, hopefully you will find some useful references.

    === Edit ===

    Here's a possible starting point: Customize the Ribbon - (It doesn't take Rocket Science).

    Diana,

    Don't know how to hide these controls, but you can disable the commands, for example:

    Code:
    <customUI xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/office/2006/01/customui">
    	<commands>
    		<command idMso="MenuPublish" enabled="false"/>
    	</commands>
    </customUI>
    - will disable the entire Publish option in the Office Menu.

    To disable a command, you need to track down the command name/idmso - you can do that by viewing Commands under Word Options > Customize - if you hover the cursor over a command listing, the command name will be displayed in parentheses.
