    That Web Toolbar

    Using Word 2000, SR-1, on Windows 98 SE.

    Everytime you click on a hyperlink in Word, the web toolbar becomes visible -- whether you want it or not. (Note that TOC links are hyperlinks too.) This is all very clearly explained in the MS KDB.

    What *isn't* explained is how to get rid of the darn thing. I do not like it, I don't want it -- but there it is, I have to keep manually turning it off. Is there any "secret" way of purging it forever from my PC?

    Re: That Web Toolbar

    The following macros were created by
    Email]pieter.janssens@skynet.be</A>

    He put them in a template (Disablewebbar.dot) which can be loaded globally by putting it in Word's starup folder. Here's the macros:
    'enable or disable webbar by pieter janssens 16/8/2000.
    'you're free to modify and distribute this code in any way with or without these comments.
    'room for improvement :
    ' - i can't get .tooltiptext nor .descriptiontext to work, neither on my NT4.0/SP5-W8.0SR2 or my WIN98-W9.0SR1
    ' but i've included these anyway cause they might give you some bright new ideas as well. enjoy!
    ' - can anyone comment on the mysterious 'temporary' parameter?
    'ps. i haven't used any variables on purpose, but i gather this isn't standard programming practice
    Sub toggleenablewebbar()
    CustomizationContext = ThisDocument.AttachedTemplate
    CommandBars("web").Enabled = Not CommandBars("web").Enabled
    With CommandBars("view").FindControl(Tag:="byebyepeskyw ebbar")
    .State = Not CommandBars("web").Enabled
    .TooltipText = IIf(CommandBars("web").Enabled, "Click to disable webbar", "Click to re-enable webbar")
    End With
    SaveSetting "word3dpartyaddins", "webbaraddin", "showingallowed", LTrim$(Str$(CInt(CommandBars("web").Enabled)))
    ThisDocument.Saved = True
    End Sub

    Sub autoexec()
    CustomizationContext = ThisDocument.AttachedTemplate
    If GetSetting("word3dpartyaddins", "webbaraddin", "showingallowed") = "" Then
    SaveSetting "word3dpartyaddins", "webbaraddin", "showingallowed", LTrim$(Str$(CInt(CommandBars("web").Enabled)))
    Else
    With CommandBars("web")
    .Enabled = CBool(Val(GetSetting("word3dpartyaddins", "webbaraddin", "showingallowed")))
    If .Enabled Then .Protection = msoBarNoProtection
    End With
    End If
    With CommandBars("view").Controls
    With .Add(Type:=msoControlButton, Before:=.Count + 1, temporary:=True)
    .BeginGroup = True
    .Caption = "Never show Web Bar"
    .DescriptionText = "Prevents the webbar from appearing."
    .OnAction = "toggleenablewebbar"
    .State = Not CommandBars("web").Enabled
    .Tag = "byebyepeskywebbar"
    .TooltipText = IIf(CommandBars("web").Enabled, "Click to disable webbar", "Click to re-enable web bar")
    End With
    End With
    ThisDocument.Saved = True
    End Sub

    Sub autoclose()
    On Error Resume Next
    CommandBars("view").FindControl(Tag:="byebyepeskyw ebbar").Delete
    ThisDocument.Saved = True
    End Sub

    Sub autoopen()
    ThisDocument.Bookmarks("opstartmap").Range.InsertB efore Options.DefaultFilePath(wdStartupPath)
    End Sub

    Hope this helps.

    Re: That Web Toolbar

    In addition to the macro (which looks interesting, haven't tried it yet), a more hands-on method would be:

    Make the Web toolbar visible.
    Go to Tools/Customize, and then using the mouse click and drag all of the controls off of the Web toolbar (I think it will allow you to remove all of the controls except the forward and back buttons).
    With the Web toolbar thus reduced in size, you can drag it up onto some free real estate among your existing toolbars and just ignore it.

    See Getting Rid of Web Toolbar

    One of the options is a download that will add a menu option for you to keep the toolbar inactive but which will let you use it if you ever want it (about once in a blue moon for me).
