I'm missing the FILE menu from my toolbar within Office applications. For example, when I open a new email within Outlook the FILE menu selection is missing to the left of EDIT, INSERT, FORTMAT, etc. I recall this same thing happened on one of my old computers and someone was able to explain how to fix this issue. I have attached a screen shot from my Outlook menu. Thanks in advance for any help.

Go to Tools -> Customize. Now from there click the Toolbars tab, scroll down to Menu Bar and click Reset. Hope that this helps.

I would try to repair the Office 2003 installation:

Start -> Control Panel -> Add & Remove Programs -> Scroll down to Office 2003 and click Change

You should get the Office 2003 installation window. Select the option to Repair, and restart the system. If that doesnt work then, uninstall Office 2003, delete the Microsoft Office folder under C:\Program Files (if you used the default install location). Restart the computer, and install Office 2003. Hope that this helps and please post back either way.

You should also download the latest Service Pack for your version of Office at Microsoft Office Downloads. Click the link Check for Updates, install all of the updates(might have to go back if the computer needs to be restarted). Hope that this helps.
