Office 2007 icon size in Quick Acess Toolbar

Q: Office 2007 icon size in Quick Acess Toolbar

Hi all,

A few days ago, I purchased a new 19" widescreen monitor, and have a question regarding Office 2007.

The resolution of the monitor is 1680 x 1050 32-bit, and when I open up any of the Office programs, the Quick Access Toolbar icons are small. I have been unable to find how to use larger icons with the Office 2007 programs. Is there (if at all) any way to use larger icons in the Quick Access Toolbar?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

 I have lost access to the file because of the change in file formats, it was in windows old but how do I recover it and then change the file formats? It strikes me this may be a problem in a business or a charity who just didn't have
the money or just didn't see the need to upgrade to windows 10.

Several threads talk of icon size but always the answer refers to the Taskbar no matter that the questioner often asks about Quick Launch icons.

Win7-HPx64 offers easy changes from small to large icons in the Taskbar but QL icons seem to have one size only - small.

In trying to set up / maintain W7 for an older person I want to offer her a QL with large icons, just like the Taskbar.

Do I ditch the QL and just pin apps to the Taskbar?

Any help appreciated.

I've searched for a while now but can't seem to find a way to increase the size of the icons on the desktop toolbar. Maybe it's something that can't be done but it'd be good because they look silly that small when you have large icons set on the taskbar

Hi - newbie here. I joined because I am a new Windows 7 64 bit user and am clueless. I was able to find out how to set up a quick launch toolbar and pin My Computer to it thanks to this forum! I have searched extensively bit haven't found an answer to this one:

How can I pin the Network Icon to the quick launch bar (that I successfully set up thanks to you guys)? I was able to create a desktop icon but when I drag it to the taskbar it only gives a "pin to show desktop" choice. No choice to pin to quick launch toobar (taskbar whatever it's called).

When I downloaded the Weatherbug program I checked the box next to "add icon to quick launch toolbar" Now the icon [temperature] appears on my taskbar in two places. One next to the start button and one next to the date. I have Foxfire 26.0 running on Windows 7.
I would like to remove the icon next to the start button. How is that done?

Did you try "right clicking" the icon and select "Unpin this program from taskbar"?

FYI, the "Quick Launch Bar" is no longer available by default, but can be added by following the instructions at the following site;

I used a freeware program to extract an icon from an exe file. I then inverted the colors and got something ugly but very different from the previous year's icon. When I drag a copy to the Quick Launch bar it reverts to the original icon. In properties it shows the new version. How do I get it to show the changed icon?

How can I use large icons in the Windows Explorer toolbar? Specifically, the "Change your view" icon that lets you choose from icons, details, list, tiles, etc.

My hand is not that steady and I spend half my time trying to hit this button and missing. In XP I could just right-click on the toolbar, select Customize, and select Large Icons at the bottom of the dialog. This feature (like many other customization features in Win7) appears to be hidden or missing. Have I missed something obvious here?

When using the Quick Launch Toolbar in Windows 7, there is one big problem: In 'Large Icons' view the top/bottom margins are too large and make the taskbar slightly higher resulting in my normal pinned shortcuts to be aligned to the top of it, which looks very ugly and untidy.

Please see image below for an example:
Is there any way to customize or tweak the top/bottom margins of the Quick Launch Bar so that they're identical to those of the regular pinned shortcuts, and prevent this from happening??

as you can see from picture below, same icons. but large is too large, small is too small. i wish there is a change in registry where i could modify this as i do not wish to use 3rd party dock.

those 3rd party program looks nice, but since they are not part of the taskbar, windows that are opened block them, and even if they do come with functions to be always on top, they block the windows that are opened instead.

unless theres a 3rd party dock that can be part of the taskbar, im wont be interested in it.

Hi and welcome.
I think your issue is directly related to Citrix and your network.
I think it dissapears because the actual link is not avaialble on bootup until you login. Also your network may have something already in place that doesn't allow it.
I know I may have not answered your question but just a few ideas.

Grrr! In the past, every windows update for outlook would return the icon to quick launch. I could delete it and that would be it for a long while. Since a recent update though, it seems MS is returning that icon to QL on every boot. Tired of repeatedly deleting it.

Is this "normal" behavior now? Any way to stop it?

Corrupt installer databases are to blame. This appears to appen with Office and Adobe pdf products. The installer database contains your .ICO or icon files. Sometimes the icons also mysteriously disappear from the porgramfiles directory as well. I have not found a solution as of yet and this continues to happen after fresh reformats. As for reinstall or repair sometimes these fail due to the corrupt installer database as is the case for me. If this is the case this thread may help you. THe program sugusted by Windows star filetypemanager may help you locate the missing installers and replace the missing file extension icons. With a corrupt installer database though its difficult.

I want to increase the type font display size globally, for all applications & windows features, but I want to preserve the smaller desktop icon size. Is there any way to adjust them independently?

I know about the advanced display settings for window color & appearance, and that has some good settings, but it is not sufficient, because it does not change most instances of text as it displays in applications.

Thanks for any suggestions.

A:Any way to change type size but NOT icon size?

Here's my whole list of font size change settings, one of which might provide the answer for you. You've probably tried some of them, but see if there's something here that might change the font size on those icons, without changing the size of the icons themselves:

1. This is the one of the main setting tools for setting various locations of Windows font sizes. Right-click on the Desktop and go to Personalize, Window Color and Appearance. Click on Advanced, and in the drop-down menu, select the item that controls the location where you wish to change the font size. (Note: the last one, Window, does not have an option to control font size.)

2. DPI - Right click on Desktop, Personalize, On Personalization Page, go to left column to: Adjust Font size ? DPI, DPI Scaling: Click on Large scale (120 DPI), and click Apply.

3. Screen Resolution: Right-click on the Desktop, choose Screen Resolution, click on the down-arrow at the end of the Resolution box, and pick the desired resolution. Check OK.

4. Display: Right-click on the Desktop, select Personalize, then Display. From the 3 settings: Small, Medium, Large, if screen defaults to Medium (125% size for font and images) and that?s too large, use Small for 100% size (aka ?normal?)

5. At the lower right hand corner of every IE web page, there?s a Zoom control that lets you increase the size of every web page, and it stays at that Zoom setting for every page until/unless you change it.

6. Open Internet Explorer, go to Tools, Internet Options, General, Accessibility, Select Ignore font sizes specified on web pages. Click OK, then Apply, then OK.

7. Open Internet Explorer, go to Tools, Internet Options, Advanced, uncheck all three:
Reset text size to Medium for new windows and tabs, and
Reset text size to Medium while Zooming, and
Reset Zoom level to 100% for new windows and tabs

8. Open Internet Explorer, click the Page button, click Text Size, and then select the size you want i.e. Large (Largest may be too large).

9. Ease of Access Center ? Go to either: Control Panel, All Control Panel Items, Ease of Access Center, Make Your Computer Easier to Use, Explore All Settings, and click on: Make this computer easier to see (Optimize Visual Display). OR go to Control Panel, and Explore all settings. Under the following heading, Make things on the screen larger, select: Change the size of text + icons. This takes you to the dpi settings screen.

10. If you have a scroll wheel on your mouse, use command/ctrl + your scroll on a web page to increase the font size.

11. MS Office apps have a Zoom slider at the lower right hand corner of every page, that lets you increase the size of every Office app page, and it stays at that Zoom setting until/unless you change it.

12. MS Word templates: In the Ribbon or QuickAccess Bar select Styles, Normal, and when the little arrow appears, select Modify. Under Formatting you can change the default font size (12) to whatever size you wish. At the bottom of the screen select Only in this documents OR New documents based on this template. Click OK. You can change this font size setting for any/all other MS Word templates as well.

13. In IE and FireFox (for current use ? not permanent): press Ctrl and the + key to increase screen size. To reduce screen size press Ctrl and the ? key. (To restore screen size to 100% press Ctrl and 0.)

14. FireFox (permanent setting): go to Tools, Options, Content, and on that screen set the new default text size that you wish. Then, click Advanced and there are additional default text size settings. Plus, in the box that says "Minimum text size" select None, and down below, UNcheck the box that says "allow pages to choose their own fonts instead of my selections above."

15. Magnifier ? To Magnify Entire Page: Start, Search pane, and type: magnifier. When it comes up click the plus (+) sign. The entire page will magnify. OR go to: Control Panel, All Control Panel Items, Ease ... Read more

A:A Quick Launch Toolbar "Toolbar" has glued itself to my IE

Hi Paul, and welcome to the board.

It's a well known parasite:

Please do this:

Download Spybot - Search & Destroy

After installing, first press Online, and search for, put a check mark at, and install all updates.
Next, close all Internet Explorer windows, hit 'Check for Problems', and have SpyBot remove all it finds.

That ought to get rid of most of your spyware.

When you've done all that, go to , and download 'Hijack This!'.
Unzip, doubleclick HijackThis.exe, and hit "Scan".

When the scan is finished, the "Scan" button will change into a "Save Log" button.
Press that, save the log somewhere, and please show us its contents.

It will possibly show other issues deserving our attention, but most of what it lists will be harmless, so do NOT fix anything yet.
Someone here will be happy to help you analyze the results.

My wife recently had a new hard drive installed, so while I was rebuilding her system, I thought I'd install her Office XP disk, rather than the previously used Office '97, it seemed to make sense as she is running XP Home.

The install went OK, but I couldn't find any sign of the Office Toolbar. I tried to do another install, where it gave me the option to add new stuff, and I did manage to load what appeared to be, what I was looking for.

Now she has a folder within the office area, that contains all the Shortcut Bar items, but no apparent way to convert them into a toolbar. I'm obviously missing something, so if anyone knows what it is, I'd be very grateful.


A:Solved: Office XP - Trouble getting an Office Toolbar

The Office Shortcut Bar is not available in Microsoft Office 2003. However, you can use the Windows XP Start menu or the Windows Quick Launch bar in Windows XP or Windows 2000 to quickly open an Office program, file, or folder.

I have unwanted programs inserted into my quick launch toolbar. How do I stop this from happening?

A:quick launch toolbar

you can "right mouse button click" on any program icon that you don't want and select delete, and it'll be gone.

often when you install a new program it'll offer you the option of not creating a quick launch icon, ie, if you read what's coming up on the screen instead of clicking "ok" all the way through the installation steps :)

but ofcourse some programs don't :( then you just have to delete it manually after.

Good Day,

I've often used the Files and Transfer Wizard to move files in the Windows XP environment, including those for people moving from Office 2003 to 2007, however, I've just been asked to move a person from a computer that would result in them moving backwards from Office 2007 to Office 2003; is this possible? What concerns should be considered? Obviously if they have a number of documents saved in the 2007 it could be problematic, though could the compatibility pack offered by Microsoft offset that concern? Thoughts? Thanks.

Good Evening Everyone,

I have a few questions concerning the Installation of 2010 Office. I know that I have to uninstall Office 2007. I have no clue on how to save or where to save my documents from Office 2007. The documents consist of Word, Excel, Powerpoint and a few various folders. Should I from the Start Menue click on Documents select all and copy. Where should I place this copy? Can It be left on my hard drive? After I install Office 2010 can I then copy the "Document File" and place in Documents. Will all the files end up in the proper place for their programs, Word files go to Word, Excel goes to Excel so on and so forth. Thank you so much for all your help and cooperation. It is greatly appreciated. I hope I described my situation correctly. I look forward to hearing from you.

A:2010 Office Professional Plus to Replace 2007 Office Small Business

But you don't have to uninstall Office 2007 to upgrade to 2010. That's the general rule as you can generally upgrade from lower SKUs to higher SKUs (Small Business to Pro Plus). As far as saving your documents, you can really save them wherever you like on your hard drive or on any CD or flash drive if you wish to do so. As far as file types, after 2010 is installed, they should all register properly for their programs so that Word documents open in Word, Excel Documents in Excel, etc.

Though if you have all of you documents already saved within "Documents" or "My Documents" or some other folder you've set aside and you want to uninstall 2007 before upgrading to 2010, the documents themselves will be retained when you uninstall, you just won't be able to really do much with them until you install 2010.

Microsoft doesn't certify Office 97 to work with Vista: being said, lot's of people on the web have gotten it to work with varying degrees of success.Ensure that you install the application in compatibility mode - both as "Run as Windows 98" and "Run as Administrator"Don't install Service Pack 2 - it has problems. But, from what I've read, it'll let you gracefully exit the SP2 setup if you started it.

I looked this up online and it said that this was caused by installing as a user, not an administrator. So I uninstalled office entirely, booted, and reinstalled as administrator.

I installed office 2007 ultimate alongside office 2003 professional. Microsoft outlook and publisher was removed from my office 2003 prior to office 2007 installation. I also opted not to install microsoft outlook 2007.

It seems that each time I load word 2007 or 2003 after previously opening the other version (ie. load 2003 followed by 2007 OR load 2007 followed by 2003), a window would opened up indicating that either the configuration or installation process is taking place, hence delaying the startup. However, once the program has started, it would run without problem. I do not intend to unistall my 2003. There was no problem loading excel 2003/2007, powerpoint 2003/2007 and access 2003/2007.

I am running on Windows XP SP2 that is regularly updated. Thank you

Hey All,

Here is my issue. The Company we consult for has not transitioned all of the way to Office 2007. We have a number of machines that still have Office 2003. Compatibility Pack works on almost all issues.

Current issue is one of our users received a PowerPoint 2003 that has embedded PowerPoint 2007 files. When the user opens the PowerPoint 2007 file Office 2003 shuts down. He has to download the 2007 file to his desktop.

From what I can see this is because the file conversion process shuts down Office 2003 before attempting to open the PowerPoint 2007 file.

Another issue that may be complicating the error is we had to run a Fixit patch from Microsoft that was causing Excel, Word and PowerPoint to be scanned which caused long opening times. I don't remember the KB article for that one at the moment but will find it if I need to.

Thanks for any help in advance.

The 2003/2007 setup is not one that she really wants to mess with (i.e., she has no interest whatsoever in uninstalling the two Office suites that she currently has), so ideally she would like to have Office 2010 installed temporarily (for the duration of her course) on the machine without interfering with the current setup.

C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Microsoft\Internet Explorer will place shortcut icons for all users and

C:\Documents and Settings\Shirley\Application Data\Microsoft\Internet Explorer
will place them only for your acct

After an infection with adware/spyware I get an error when trying to bring up the Quick Launch and Desktop Toolbars. I am running Windows 2000 ver 5.0.

The error I get is "Can not create toolbar.". I have checked and the Quick Launch folder is in C:\documents and settings\administrator\application data\microsoft\internet explorer and the Desktop folder is in C:\documents and settings\administrator.

I can't find any registry entries that correspond to these toolbars.

If someone knows of or has seen this problem before, I would appreciate any assistance.

I am totally clueless and somewhat frustrated because for no reason my Quick Launch Toolbar just disappears and when I Right Click on the task bar and select Toolbars | Quick Launch, I get a message "Cannot Create Toolbar".

I came across a solution and am using that as an interim workaround but would like to permanently solve this problem. The solution is to create a folder under %Appdata%\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch and then manually paste shortcuts of things that I like in my Quick Launch Toolbar.

I have also tried another solution but that has not solved the problem either. This solution advices to run the following commands:

My Quick Launch toolbar will not stay turned on even if I lock the toolbar. Maybe I turned it off in the MSConfig Startup area. Do you know what I need to do to get it to stay? Every time I Reboot I have to re-launch the toolbar.
Thank you!

A:help with removing find-quick and some other toolbar

go to , and download 'Hijack This!'.
Unzip, doubleclick HijackThis.exe, and hit "Scan".

When the scan is finished, the "Scan" button will change into a "Save Log" button.
Press that, save the log somewhere, and please copy & paste its contents to the forum.

It will possibly show issues deserving our attention, but most of what it lists will be harmless or even required, so do NOT fix anything yet.
Someone here will be happy to help you analyze the results.

I seem to have lost my Quick Launch toolbar beside the start menu. I had 3 icons on it, 'show desktop' being the most important. The show desktop icon disappeared, and in trying to rectify it, I removed the other 2 icons as well, I've since found the show desktop icon but I now cannot drag any of the 3 icons to where the Quick Launch toolbar used to be - I just a get a circle with a line through it. If I right click on the toolbar and select 'toolbars' - Quick Launch has a tick beside it.

Thanks for any advice

I've recently reinstalled my XP Pro.

Now, when I minimize more than one file of the same program, for example 3 files I'm working on in Excel, they "stack" and all I get in the tollbar is one main icon and when the mouse is placed over it, it shows the name of each one.

Before, it used to have a separate icon for each minimized file.

Can anyone suggest how I can correct this? I do find it annoying.

Hi Big John,

since a few month I also have this annoying toolbar problem. It drives me crazy! Whenever I right click on one of my toolbars (I use 3), it will get inactive, exactly as you described it.
I invested a lot of time searching the Internet, without any success. So if you should solve this problem, please let me know.

Quick Launch - Enable or Disable

I recently re-installed XP. Before I did this I could drag and drop quick launch icons on to the area at the left end of the task bar, which stayed the same height.
Now when I enable the quick launch comes up above the task bar, so doubling the height, and depriving me of that part of the screen.

I cannot find a solution to this minor problem anywhere, but I find it quite annoying.

Any help towards a solution would be most appreciated.

Try taking your mouse cursor and moving it to the line on top of the task bar till it shows a double arrow, then hold down on the left mouse button and pull it down and then let go of the mouse button. Let us know if that works.

A few minutes ago, I wanted to delete a shortcut from my Quick Launch toolbar. The context menu takes a while to load since I have lots of stuff on it. I delete the icon, and bam, the toolbar is stuck. It's still there and the only way to fix is a restart. I also cannot click anywhere on the taskbar/startmenu because all I get is the "loading" curser.

This has happened once before, and like I said, I had to restart. I just did a spyware/virus scan and all was deleted

Running Win 2K Pro, which I just got a couple of days ago. When I hover the mouse pointer over an icon in the Quick Launch toolbar, a yellow box appears giving me the name of the associated program. For Outlook 2000, besides telling me the program name it tells me what I can do with it ("Send and receive e-mail; manage your schedule, contacts and tasks . . . ."). Is it possible to edit this feature so it only gives me the program name? Or, as an alternative, can I turn this feature off entirely?
