Ever thought that one to yourself when you were trying to drag and drop text in an MS Office 2007 program only to find that it wasn’t working out.
Why not you may ask… well, this little guy pops up every time that you select text.
It’s called the Mini Toolbar and unfortunately most times that happens you seem to inadvertently activate something on the toolbar instead of the text work you planned to do.
The result always seems to be that you find yourself even further behind then when you started! After all, you haven’t done the intended work with the text and you probably have to undo whatever it was that happened as a result of the mini toolbar fiasco.
So, if you don’t find yourself actually using the Mini Toolbar and it’s causing any trouble then you many want to turn it off completely.
It can’t cause problems if it never appears.
If that sounds like a plan to you then here’s what you need to know.
First, since this is an optional feature we need into the program’s Options dialog box via the Office Button.
Once there you need to navigate to the Popular category of the options.
In the section named”Top options for working with…” (the ending depends upon the program you’re using) clear the checkbox for “Show Mini Toolbar on selection”.
Click OK to exit the Options dialog box and you’re all set.
Selecting text should no longer activate the Mini Toolbar and you shouldn’t feel a headache coming on every time you try to select text.
