Delightful Children and MS Word!
A delightful child has managed to turn off the File, Edit, etc menu in Word. How do I turn it on again? Googled it without much sucess so far...it is the end of the day!
It's OK sods law, soon as I posted it found the toolbar at the side of the screen!

go to view and then toolbars go into customize and in the commands tab you can modify them I think...

Its easy with mandatory profiles .... Log off, log on, sorted.

It can sometimes get moved virtually off the screen. Turn off all the other toolbars from View then check the corners of the screen.

Easy! tell them that they got themselves into the mess, and now they can get themselves back out of it.

and the poor old NQT who is taking the lesson goes into melt-down. Sometimes it's kinder to fix it

Given that it was posted at 3.45 I doubt it was critical and given that the nature of the problem was entirley caused by the pupil in question, I think guiding him/her to the solution would of been better than just fixing it....

Yes it was at 3:30 the problem arose, but as I say soon sorted it out. The problem was the child (primary) wanted to do a saveas but could not find the command to do it and they finish at 3:30! also the teacher was not an NQT...it was me ( yes I'm a teacher as well as techie )..so not a meltdown just something I needed to sort asap before I dashed off to a wasted 1.5 hours of my life, oops sorry I mean staff meeting! Thanks for all the replie anyway, only one was close, the toolbar had just been dragged on to the left hand side of the screen, not somewhere I would normally expect to see it

Could you not have just used the save/save as shortcut keys? A workaround but would of reduced the urgency to sometime before his IT based lesson

My main reason for running them myself, the kids hate me for it!
