    Task Pane Pain (MS Office Word 2003 SP1)

    Screenshot reduced in size by HansV - please don't post pictures over 640x480 pixels in size.

    Somehow the task pane in Word that normally appears to the right side of the document for formatting, getting starting, Help, clip art and many other functions now appears at the top of my documents in between the the menu bar and the formatting/standard toolbar. This pane is at least an inch in depth, so it takes up a lot of screen on my laptop. This is very irritating. I've tried to drag it back to the original position without success. I can make it free floating and position it on the side, but I'd rather have it back as fixed on the right side. I'm afraid to return all of the menus to the default position since I've done a lot of customization. I've attached a screen shot of the current configuration. Any ideas would be most appreciated.

    Try the following:
    - Press Alt+F11 to activate the Visual Basic Editor.
    - Press Ctrl+G to activate the Immediate window.
    - Type Application.CommandBars("Task Pane").Position = 2
    - Press Enter.
