    Where does Office Toolbar keep its data? (Offixe 2002)

    I've used the Office Toolbar for years - in fact I can't live without it, at work or at home. I just started using a new PC, but I want to set up exactly the same toolbars as I had on the previous PC. I still have the hard drive, so I can just copy the necessary data over to the new Office installation.
    Only problem is, I have no idea where to find said data. I have 5 separate toolbars (at home) configured by general purpose (Utilities, Office, Multimedia, etc.). I'd use Quick Start, but that would fill up the bottom of my display 2 or 3 deep, and with no organization to it.

    As Professor Backwards once said.....PLEH!

    You can use the Save My Settings Wizard to store your office settings on the old PC, and to restore them on the new one. See Save your Office XP settings.

    Note: the Office Shortcut Bar doesn't exist any more in Office 2003, so it might be a good idea to start getting used to the Quick Launch toolbar now. You can add subfolders to the Quick Launch folder (Cocuments and Settings<username>Application DataMicrosoftInternet ExplorerQuick Launch), they will appear as submenus of the toolbar. See for example A better start menu with Quick Launch.

    That file stores customizations of Outlook toolbars, not the Office Toolbar.

    It's still useful to know, if you want to transfer Outlook custimizations!
