Hiding the Reviewing Toolbar

Steve Richards complained that whenever he creates a new document, Word opens the Reviewing toolbar. He doesn't want it to open automatically, but wants it hidden.

There could be several answers to this problem. If you are using Word 2000, the problem could be related to a Reviewing toolbar bug in that version of the program. You can read about that problem at the following WordTips page:

If this is the problem, then you should be able to fix it by loading the Normal.dot template directly, hiding the Reviewing toolbar, and then saving the template.

If the problem still remains, or if you are using a version of Word other than Word 2000, then a solution is to create an AutoOpen macro that hides the toolbar. Just add the following macro to your Normal.dot template:

Public Sub AutoOpen()
    Application.CommandBars("Reviewing").Enabled=False
End Sub
