    Expanding menus (W2000 Win98SE)

    When you click on a menu item in the standard tool bar, a short menu is initially displayed and it then expands to the full sized menu. How do I get the full sized menu to display all the time. I know there is a click box in there somewhere to do this but I just can't remeber where it is! Thanks. John

    Select Tools | Customize...
    Acitvate the Options tab.
    Check the "Always show full menus" box.
    Click OK.

    Hi Hans, Under Tools/Customize/Options there is a check box for "Show full menus after short delay" which if I uncheck means the menus do not expand at all until I click on the double chevron. So I still don't get the full menu shown first up all the time. John

    There should only be a tick in the box that says show menus after delay. There should be no tick in the box that says Menus show recently commands first. If that box is ticked you will still get that horrible drop down menu

    Sorry, the "Always show full menus" option is for Word 2002. Hetty has already pointed you towards the "Menus show recently used items first" option for Word 2000.
