hi,

Could someone help me unlock my toolbar in Word. I am now stuck with an urgent work and every time I want to go to file and click on it there is a small rectangle that stops me from going any further. I cannot even close Word. Would it be an idea to restart the computer and hope that it will recover the document?

many thanks

karine Richardson

If you hold control&S, or click on the save icon, it should be able to save it, then shut computer down, restart again.

shortcuts Feb 14, 2004

Try to use the shortcuts of your keyboard:

safe: control-S (hold the control key pressed and then press the S key.

With the alt keys you can normally access your menu. Does this work? For example:
Alt-F opens up the file menu, and then you can go down using the arrow keys.

If you manage to safe restart word. Does it work now?
