    Full screen - Status & Task Bars

    Morning -

    Full screen; Is there a way to have the Task bar visible as well as the Status bar? Sometimes the former is visible, but I cannot figure out how it became visible. (using Word97, SR-2)

    Also, Internet Explorer/Properties/Setting/View Files. Is there a way to avoid pressing OK twice to close the box?

    Thank you.

    Re: Full screen - Status & Task Bars

    Which status bar are you referring to? And I am assuming by taskbar you mean the standard Windows taskbar with the Start menu on it?

    In answer to your second question, the answer is no.

    Hi, Mark -

    Thanks for your response. Yes, that's the Task Bar I'm referring to. The status bar is the one which shows the page you're on, section, etc.

    Hi

    Are you are saying that the taskbar covers Word's status bar when the taskbar is displayed?

    If so, the way to make sure the taskbar and Word's statusbar are both visible is to stop the taskbar from auto-hiding. Right click on the taskbar and select properties. On the taskbar options tab make sure auto-hide is not selected.
    Now whenever Word is run, the taskbar and Word's statusbar will both be visible.

    Give us a screen shot, I think you are mixing up the Status bar vs. TaskBar.

    Now running HP Pavilion a6528p, with Win7 64 Bit OS.

    Re: Full screen - Status & Task Bars

    From the "Close Full Screen" button at the top, you can see that View | Full Screen has been selected in Word. As "Full Screen" implies, this suppresses the Windows task bar. By clicking the "Close Full Screen" button, or by pressing the Escape key, you will return Word to its normal state.

    Re: Full screen - Status & Task Bars

    Hans - yes. I am in Full Screen on purpose. What my question is can I have the Word Status Bar and the Taskbar visible when in full screen. From the previous replies, I guess not.

    Thanks. Curious

    Re: Full screen - Status & Task Bars

    You can have the Word Status bar in Full Screen mode:
    - Switch to Full Screen.
    - Move the mouse pointer to the top of the screen.
    - The menu bar should pop up.
    - Select Tools | Options...
    - Activate the View tab if necessary.
    - Tick Status Bar.
    - Click OK.

    I don't think you can have the Windows Task Bar. You can still use Alt+Tab to switch to other applications; this will restore the Task Bar until you switch back to Word.
