    Lost a toolbar!

    Office 2000 professional on Win2000, I was in excel and fooling around with the Forms toolbar, slid it over to the left thinking it would 'dock', but it didn't. i guess it's floating around somewhere on the left outside the app's window. tried:

    1) toggle from full screen to regular mode
    2) going to View | Toolbars... toggle the Forms toolbar on and off
    3) docking another toolbar on the left
    4) doing 'detect and repair'
    5) minimizing/maximizing/random resizing of apps window and spreadsheet window
    6) trolling thru 17 pages of postings on this forum

    and still no forms toolbar.

    this is rather irritating as i use excel's forms feature often and don't want to use the Controls toolbox.

    I thank ya'll in advance for any help on this 'feature'.

    Hey Steve, can you increase your screen resolution?

    nope. this is a company machine and they have, for some reason, determined that users cannot change their resolution. but i think mine is set at 1260x1400 or whatever is close to that.

    Okay... Short of hacking the company system (not advised..) there are a few utilities you can download which effectively increase your screen size, such as this one.
    If that doesn't work, let me know!
