Default Who here still uses old Office 2000 SP3?

I do in my old, updated Windows XP Pro. SP3 machine. I rarely use Office
anymore so it doesn't bother me. I also have the 2007 file format
conversion pack and the latest updates before MS stopped supporting
Office 2000.

I do not "use" MSO 2000 as my Office suite (have 2007 Ultimate and now
using 2010 Pro). I cannot do without--will not do without--the MS
Office 2000 Shortcut Bar. I have used it with Office XP and Office
2007 for years. It is working beautifully, as always, with MS Office
2010. Just requires installing it LAST (after the Office suite that
you are going to use) and doing a custom install of ONLY the Shortcut
Bar on the Tools menu.

I live in fear that MS will find some way to really kill it in a
future version of Office g--for now, I can expect to have it for at
least three years until the next MSO version come out.

Why not just put the Office products that you want to be available only one
click away onto the Quick Launch Bar, and be done with the Office Shortcut
Bar?

With the advent of the Quick Launch Bar that allows any of your favorite
applications to be only one click away, instead of the Office Shortcut Bar
that only holds Office applications, why do you keep the shortcut bar?

LOL--what makes you think that the Shortcut Bar only holds MSO
applications??? I have 156 applications on 9 Shortcut Bars--all in the
same installation/different colors for each of the 9 sliding bars.
That is what makes it so great--everything is right there. I tried the
Jumplists in Win7--completely unsatisfactory.

HOWEVER--today I have found a replacement for my old Shortcut Friend.
Works the same way (multiple groupings/subdirectories) and does not
"tell" MSO2010 that another MSO is "installed" which may be causing a
small problem. It's Winstep's Nexus Ultimate 10.4.

I'm preparing for the delivery of the MSO2010 disks...and saying
goodbye to an old friend.

You can put anything onto the Short Cut Bar, but why? You can put the same
things onto the Quick Launch Bar.

I guess that under my rock, it makes no sense to have nine shortcut bars
sutffed full of 156 different applications. The whole point of the shortcut
bar -- and quick launch, for that matter -- is to let you identify a handful
of applications that you need to get to with a single click and not have
them take up lots of real estate on the screen. When you put every
application you own onto nine different shortcut bars, this pretty much
defeats the purpose. But hey, that's just me. I have 15 or so icons on the
Quick launch Bar so I can get them open with a single click, and the others
on the Desktop where I get at them with a single click, then a double click
to start the one I need. If I do this enough times with the same
application, I drag it to the Qucik Launch and revaluate the need for one of
the existing icons to be on the Quick Launch.

I was a big fan of the Office Shortcut Bar in the olden days before Quick
Launch. I kept lots of different things there, but it takes up an entire
border of the screen, so one may as well put all of the apps they can onto
the shortcut bar. I mean, if the bar is gonna take the space anyhow, it may
as well be filled with icons. But I have to question the usefulness of nine
shortcut bars filled with 156 applications.

Seems you need to put on your Systgem Programmer's hat and develop a
shortcut bar. I just drag the Task Bar to give three rows of icons, and then
drag the border of the Quick Launch bar to the right so the space will hold
the icons I want.

I haven't used Microsoft Office 2000 in a long, long time. However, I will say one thing -- aside from aesthetics and compatibility, not much has changed. Right now (at home), I'm using Microsoft 2007, but at work, I'm using 2010. I don't see too much of a difference between features and everything appears to pretty much do the same thing. The only issues I have with different versions is that you have to save them in compatibility mode. That can get pretty tedious and irritating at times.
