    Moving favorite Word 2003 toolbar to laptop

    Hi,

    My desktop & laptop are identical, W& Pro, Office 2003.

    Over the years, I've developed a toolbar config that handles 80% of my work and I want to transfer it to my laptop.
    And I'm doing something wrong.

    For years I've stored my normal.dot in a TEMPLATES folder on my E 'data' drive rather that the C users>appdata> & pointed Word's file location to TEMPLATES rather the the app dad location & all was ok.

    Long Story Short: Below is the toolbar I want to show up in Word 2003 on MY desktop & laptop. Can anyone help me get there.

    First, when I customized toolbars, I stored them in a separate global template rather than normal.dot. Transfering them was much easier.

    Find your old normal.dot template and copy it to the My Templates location on your new computers. Then, perhaps think about moving the toolbars and macros to a separate template. You can do that using the Organizer.
