Getting taskbar to STAY HIDDEN


E

Ed Cryer

On my 3-year old computer that was nothing fancy even when it was new,
Word fires up faster than I can say "one thousand one, one thousand
two". Eight seconds seems like a long time, if that's what you're
seeing.
On my 1-year old bog-standard dual-core, Word 2007 loads in 3 secs. But
delete it and it reloads in 1 sec.

You don't say what version of Word you're using, and the version
probably makes a difference in how long it takes to start.

But I just tried here. Word 2010 takes two seconds and WordPerfect X5
(my word processor of choice) about the same.

Yes, eight seconds seems like a long time.
Sorry, I'm using Word 2003, part of Office 2003. I must have been
assuming (unintentionally!) that everyone uses the same version that I
do. ;-)

And of course I agree with the later comments in this thread, that
even 8 seconds isn't an eternity in the grand scheme of things.

Kind of ironic that all these people have Word started more than
twice as fast as you, huh? ;-}

But seriously, considering the last time I used Word was in the
late 90's, I should have probably kept my mouth shut. Sorry for
bringing all this up. I know I am difficult and talk out of my
ass half the time.

Still, from what I have read in this group over the last month,
Windows 7 sucks as bad as XP and everything in between. Big
surprise. I guess all those enthusiastic magazine writers MUST
be getting free trips and hookers.

Nah, so far everyone is right in the same boat with me at about 2-3
seconds.

Yeah, it's pretty standard to accuse people who are having fewer
problems of accepting bribes, being on the payroll, whatever.

It is, if you are a paranoid delusional.

Just tried it on this system, it is a sub £300 PC world job, and Word[1]
starts in three seconds.

To be completley honest, I hadnt installed Word in this PC,
and "8 seconds" was something I just pulled out of my a**.

However, I do have Open Office, and running under Linux, OO
Word Processor just opened in 4 seconds, as I just tried it.
(The second time I opened it, it was about 1.5 seconds.)

It's certainly not long enough to make me want to use 'Write',
or whatever the linux equivalent is to write anything.
