The new personalised menus in Word 2000 are pretty cool.
They remember which commands you've used and show only those you use the most, plus the basic ones. Seldom-used commands are left unseen unless you click an expander at the bottom of each menu.
Unfortunately, if you open a menu by clicking its name, then take a few seconds to decide which command you want to use, Word suddenly displays all the menu commands.
Here's how to turn off that automatic expansion:
1. Select Tools-Customize.
2. Click the Options tab in the Customize dialogue box.
3. Click Show full menus after a short delay to disable the option.
4. Click Close, and you're done.
