Default Missing standard office tabs in ribbon for word 2007

Hi all,



I have lost the standard tabs in the ribbon bar (I have the tabs for add-ins). I have tried to delete the data file in the registry but that has not worked. Any thoughts?

Thanks

Are they really lost or just "minimized" (that is, you can see Home, Insert, Page Layout, etc. but not the groups of commands)? In that case, double-click "Home," for example, and the display will be back to normal.

The ribbon isn't minimized. Here is a screen print. The only tabs available are the two add ins.

I see. Have you tried disabling the add-ins then?

Thumbs up

It worked. I had to run word as administrator to disable some of the add-ins. When disabling adobe word crashed and upon reboot the tabs are back with the add-ins disabled. I guess there is one add in that is still corrupting word (not adobe), if I add it I go back to losing the tabs again.

Thank you

Note that you can figure out which addin is causing trouble by following the steps in the following KB article: How to troubleshoot problems that occur when you start or use Word 2010, Word 2007, Word 2003, or Word 2002.
