MS Word 2000 Menu Commands Vanish!

By FriendofAslan ·
How can I get my menu commands and toolbars to reappear in my MS Word2000? I openned up Word last week and no tool bars or menu commands appeared above or below the bank page. They vanished and no matter what I try I cannot get them back! I can still do save/print/spell check and find commands using funtion keys but very little else. When I press the right mouse button I get an option of [cut/copy/paste/font/paragragh/bullet-numbering/hyperlink]. How can I bring back my menu commands? I consider(ed) myself an advanced MS Word user, but this has thrown me for a loop. I even deleted and reinstalled Office 2000...but this didn't solve the problem. I use Widows95. My McAfee virus program is active and updated and shows no virus activity.
Any help would be much appreciated.
Scott

First check if there is any empty menu bar in word 2000 if it is there just right click on the empty menu bar select Customize command from the menu, so in Customize Dialog box in Toolbars select MENU option and than click on RESET button it will reset your original toolbar. And even with this option you can create your own customized menu.
If it works email me on

Hope this helps:

1. Quit all Windows applications
2. On the Windows Start menu, click Run
3. In the Open box, type regedit, and click OK.

4. Locate the following key by double-clicking the appropriate folders:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\9.0\Word\Data

5. With the Data folder selected, click Rename on the Edit menu.

6. Type a new name for the Data folder (for example, type OLDDATA) and then press enter

7. On the Registry menu, click Exit to close the Registry Editor and restart Word normally (without using the /a switch).
