    Hiding the Box (MSO 2003)

    Edited by HansV to reduce huge screenshot in size. Please don't post images over 640x480 pixels in size.

    The entry at the end of this msg was reg-exported after entering the data found in (the attached) text for "Hide the Type A Question For Help"...

    I have emailed TechRepublic as well.... usually their stuff is pretty credible... I thought I just missed something...

    Anybody see anything wrong here, or maybe want to try it themselves?

    Regards,

    Are you sure you set it in the right Registry branch and as a new DWORD? I hadn't heard of this hack, but it worked for me.

    John:

    AAMOF, the other one I wanted to work would make the Office help box float as it used to do, and this one is complaining as well....

    John:

    I just re-did them... and NONE of the Office apps are hiding the "Question here" box...

    I guess it's not the blinkin' important, but it's certainly less than uplifting to not be able to make this work... ESPECIALLY since you did, which means that the hack itself is valid...

    Chuck,
    This is a guess but I notice that your other entries are of the form "Microsoft Office Outlook" rather than "Microsoft Outlook". Perhaps you need to adjust the entry to "Microsoft Office Outlook AWDropdownHidden" for Office 2003?

    Rory:

    You don't know how dumb I feel right now. That was it.

    I don't know how many times I have said to people "... no, that's NOT what it says, now what does it...".

    Thanks ever so...
