  • Question

  • Is there any hot-key or shortcut to disable horizontal scroll bar in MS Word. I use a lot of keyboard shortcuts & I have noticed my horizontal scroll bar just goes missing all of a sudden.

    If I have opened 10 docx files & I want to save all of them in one go. How to do so? This option is available in MS Excel 2007. I use Word 2007.

  • Hi Ankit,

    Are you sure you still need the horizontal scroll bar when it disappeared?

    To save and close the document at one time, use the following macro:

    Sub Save&CloseAll()
    'Save & Close all open documents
    With Application
    .ScreenUpdating = False
    Do Until .Documents.Count = 0
    .Documents(1).Close SaveChanges:=wdSaveChanges
    Loop
    .Quit SaveChanges:=wdSaveChanges
    End With
    End Sub

  • I have the same problem with the scrollbar disappearing in Word 2010 -- it even disappeared when I had it checked in Word 2010's options!  

    This VBA macro fixed the problem, toggles on/off, can be easily modified for the vertical bar:

    ActiveWindow.DisplayHorizontalScrollBar = Not ActiveWindow.DisplayHorizontalScrollBar
    MsgBox ".DisplayHorizontalScrollBar is now " & ActiveWindow.DisplayHorizontalScrollBar
    

    BTW, someone somewhere said that one of the scrollbars conflicts with autotext popups appearing, I haven't verified that.  Autotext popups would be controlled by a separate dialog box related to 'proofing'
