    Web Toolbar

    In Word97/SR2 there appears to be no way to stop the Web toolbar creating a new toolbar line when I jump to a hyperlinked Word document. Is this true in Word200 and later carnations?

    It's bad enough that Word doesn't best-fit toolbars all by itself; it's worse whn my screen territory shrinks by a centimtere because of a feature I don't really want.

    Hi Chris,

    You can banish it in VBA. See this article for the code:

    If you want a somewhat less permanent solution (making it optional) you can try . See <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.addbalance.com/word/webtoolbar.htm> Getting Rid of the Web Toolbar in Microsoft Word for more information.

    Re: Web Toolbar

    Thnaks, BAM, but I don't want to banish it. I've cleared off every button but back and Forward, it's just as I want it. I just don't want a new line of toolbars every time my 2-button monster pops up.

    Re: Web Toolbar

    Charles, thanks for the response. Your links are usually good, but in this post they've been giving me problems.

    Pieter's link gives me a bare page with no "SaveAs" when I right-click on the download, and links to your page report errors trying to access AddBalance.

    Hi Chris,

    I believe Pieter's add-in is a manual method of turning the web toolbar on/off (like the Drawing toolbar). It just enables it and disables it so you still could have the same problem.

    Word 97 is pretty good about returning your toolbars to where you last had them. Why not drag the small toolbar to the right of another or move the forward/back buttons to another toolbar and then disable the Web?

    I've not had a lot of success with that in Word97SR2. If I open the template, make a change (the template is now "dirty"), re-dock the toolbar and then save the template, Word97 retains the position. Simple docking without a re-save won't work.


    The Web toolbar has a mind of its own. Harold-the-programmer decided that grabbing a new line from my screen real-estate was the easiest thing for HIM, regardless of the cost to me.


    You may see my post to BAM in which I suggest that my Work Menu problems may be due to my practice of <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.wopr.com/cgi-bin/w3t/showflat.pl?Cat=&Board=wrd&Number=14901&page=0&vie w=collapsed&sb=5>loading Normal.dot from a safe copy</A>. I will disable that practice for a day or two while I resolve these two issues.

    Let me tell ya, compared to Word 2000 it's pretty good. <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>.

    I've had a devil of a time trying to keep a toolbar in place for some forms I created. I'm not in interested in one specific place - just all of it on the screen would be nice! In Word 2000, due to the toolbars share one row "feature", Word keeps shoving my custom toolbar to the right of the Standard no matter what I try/do. It will stick for awhile and then it goes and does it again

    Hi Chris,

    My site (addbalance.com) is down again. <img src=/S/mad.gif border=0 alt=mad width=15 height=15>

    The link is <A target="_blank" HREF=http://users.skynet.be/wordprogramming.be/>http://users.skynet.be/wordprogramming.be/</A> which is to basically a blank page with one link to <A target="_blank" HREF=http://users.skynet.be/wordprogramming.be/disablewebbar.dot>this template</A>. If the first link doesn't work, try right-clicking on the second to save the target.

    This add-in gives you a menu command to disable/enable the web toolbar. The settings stay set between sessions.

    *THIS* is what you should have told me ... (grin)


    <pre>Sub udf_WebBar()
    ' Procedure : udf_WebBar
    ' Description: Slap the web toolbar back to where it belongs.
    ' By: Chris Greaves.
    ' Inputs: None
    ' Returns: None.
    ' Assumes: None.
    ' Side Effects: Life suddenly starts to seem better .....
    ' Tested: By a call from the user.
    CommandBars("Web").Enabled = True
    Dim mybar
    Set mybar = CommandBars("Web")
    mybar.Position = msoBarFloating
    With mybar
    .Left = 0
    .Top = 0
    End With
    End Sub
    </pre>

    <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.vif.com/users/cgreaves/theblues.htm>Web Toolbar Blues</A>

    The function below does the trick BUT


    Try this first:

    View, Toolbars; show the web toolbar for the last time.

    Decide that you only want those two Forward and Backward buttons anyway.

    View, Toolbar, Customize

    Drag those two Forward and Backward buttons to your Standard toolbar in Normal.dot. While you're there get rid of all the stuff that Woody told you to get rid of (The Underground Guide To Windows pp 3-16).

    THEN run the following macro.


    <pre>Public Sub BanishWebToolbar()

    CommandBars("Web").Enabled = False
    ' Change "False" to "True" to re-enable the Toolbar
    End Sub
    </pre>




    From now on, SMILE!
