    Clipboard Toolbar (Office 2000)

    This is an Office question rather than a particular Outlook one:

    I know most people love this Clipboard Toolbar that pops up every time you happen to copy two consecutive things. I just hate it. Is there a way to disable it, and further, to prevent it from ever popping up again?

    Thanks

    I hate it too, although it does have its uses. You can disable this by clicking Edit - Office Clipboard or waiting for it to reappear, and then changing the option to Show Office Clipboard Automatically.

    Re: Clipboard Toolbar (Office 2000)

    Take a look at some earlier posts on how to deal with misbehaved toolbars: <post#=299216>post 299216</post#> (disable Web toolbar, Word's Reviewing toolbar); <post#=174428>post 174428</post#> (lock Clipboard toolbar in place in Outlook so at least it doesn't pop up at you).

    Re: Clipboard Toolbar (Office 2000)

    Hi Mark,

    I can't find the Office Clipboard option under any Edit menu -neither in Outloook's main Edit menu nor in the message window Edit menu-. Am I missing something?

    Thanks

    You may be, if those irritating adaptive menus are still turned on. If you see a chevron at the bottom of the Edit menu, try clicking it to reveal all of the options.

    Re: Clipboard Toolbar (Office 2000)

    Hi Mark,

    You bet the first thing I did after installing Office was disable the infuriating adaptive menus. Everything is displayed, but there's no Office Clipboard option under Edit... <img src=/S/sigh.gif border=0 alt=sigh width=15 height=15>
    JIC, I have Office 2000 SR-1 if it helps...

    Eh, yes it does help. I misunderstood, I thought you were using Office XP...

    Clipboard Pane (Office 2003)

    On a related issue, but with Office 2003, I have been looking for a way to permanently hide the automatic Clipboard View of the Task Pane except when I actually want it. (Not the Startup Task Panes, I have already shut them down.) I was just upgraded from 2000 to 2003, and all I could find on this was <!mskb=286374>Microsoft Knowledge Base Article 286374<!/mskb>. In particular, the Clipboard Task Pane is annoying me in Excel. However, in the process of writing this question, I set (checked/ticked) the Task Pane Option for "Show Office Clipboard when Ctrl-C pressed Twice", with all other Clipboard Task Pane display options unchecked, and that seems to have done it. I'll post back if not.

    Re: Clipboard Pane (Office 2003)

    And then there's the custom icon code:<pre>Sub TaskPane()
    With Application.CommandBars("Task Pane")
    If .Visible = True Then
    .Visible = False
    Else: .Visible = True
    End If
    End With
    End Sub</pre>

    Re: Clipboard Pane (Office 2003)

    Hi John:
    Doesn't the article that unkamunka posted in <post#=358492>post 358492</post#> work in Word 2003 (after changing the version from 9 to 11)? That registry edit sure worked in Word 2000.

    Re: Clipboard Pane (Office 2003)

    Phil, because that KB so specifically talks about the ClipBoard TB, I assumed it didn't apply to the Pane in '03 (we both know what can happen when we 'ass-u-me'). I'll look into it, but for now the "Press Ctrl-C twice" is the behavior I want.
