    Office 2k Shortcut Bar and Windows XP (SR1)

    I just got Windows XP and set up the Office Shortcut Bar (OSB) from Office 2k. The icons, which look fine elsewhere, look awful in the OSB! Apparently the OSB for Office 2k doesn't support the same graphics level as Windows XP. What can I do to correct this without buying Office XP (which isn't an option for me)? Is the OSB from Office XP available for download (I couldn't find it on the MS site)? If I find someone w/ Office XP, is it legal for them to share the OSB with me? This is a real problem, since some of the icons are not even recognizable!

    Thanks! -tew

    Don't worry, Office XP Shortcut Bat icons (other than for Office applications - Word, Excel etc) look the same way. Screen resolution in Windows XP (16-bit minimum) is too high for Office Shortcut Bar.
    And I was wonder why Office icons in Office 2000/XP are more primitive than in Office 97...

    Would the Office 97 Shortcut Bar work better? I have that and could try it...
