Have you ever noticed if you select some text in Microsoft Word 2007 you get a little pop-up menu.  You know the one, it lets you change the font, the font size, the font colour and a lot more.

Some people think it is great.  Some people think it is annoying.

I think it is great, but as a service to you, I will let you know how to turn it off, and stop it from popping up!

  1. Click on the menu – the “Office Orb” (that circle in the top left hand corner which used to be the file menu!)
  2. Click on “Word Options”
  3. Look in the “Popular section”, under “Top options for working with Word
  4. Untick the “Show Mini Toolbar on selection” checkbox
  5. Hit ok

There you go – no more annoying (not) popup mini menu in Word 2007

’till next time

  1. While the instructions given direct us to the appropriate menu, the (definitely) annoying mini-menu is a zombie on our PCs. You can untick the thing as many times as you want, and it refuses to die.
