    Humm...Are you sure the window isnt too big, i mean, maybe the left place is off the sreen and you have to move the window just a little more to the left. But... what do i know about computers!!!! Good luck with that, because you won't get any real and useful help from me...

    Try these in the following order:
    1. Make sure it's "windowed" meaning it's not taking up too much of the monitor. If you've done that or that doesn't work, try

    2. Reboot. If that doesn't work then:

    3. Re-install MS Word.

    Try going into the "Tools" tab on the top toolbar. Then go down to the "Options" command. Select the "View" tab, and check to see if the boxes for the vertical and horizontal scroll bars are still checked. It's possible that they were somehow corrupted. If they aren't checked, click on the boxes. Heck, click and unclick it anyway just to be sure. Hopefully, that will fix the lost scroll bar problem.

    Good Luck.

    Hey good lookin'

    I'm glad it worked. Something similar happens to my audio controls once in a while, so when my speakers quit working, I have to go turn the software back on, even though I never turned it off. What a world, huh? Thank you Bill Gates for the "adventure".

    :kiss back at ya
