Office Clipboard

I’m used to the Windows Clipboard, which has one spot to put things in. Copy/paste. It’s simple, it’s easy to use, it’s quick.

Office ClipboardDamn this expanded Office Clipboard that comes with Office 2000, with its extraneous toolbar turning itself on and plonking itself right at the top, screwing up all your menus. Damn its 12 spots which fill up and then interrupt you to tell you they’re full. I don’t care if they’re full. Yes of course I want to copy this and bump some old long-forgotten thing from an hour ago off the list.

I don’t want it. I didn’t ask for it. Is there some way of turning this bloody thing off?

Yes, thankfully there is.

(Thankfully in Office XP, it can be done from the Options screen.)
