    Office xp shortcut bar Icons do not display


    I have used the Office XP shortcut bar with every windows version up to windows 7 without problems. When I upgraded to Windows 10, the Icons only show a ? and the program associated with the icon will only execute if I right click on the icon and click either open or run as administrator. The program name associated with the icon will display when I hover over the icon.

    Is there any fix for displaying the actual icon picture? I have more programs that I use daily than would fit on the task bar. I don't want to clutter my desktop with icons. The shortcut bar allows me to organize my program icons in different task bars so I would like to continue using it.

    :)

    Upper screen toolbar in Windows 10 to locate program shortcuts which launch on mouse clicking

    Up until the advent of Windows 10 I was able to install the Office 97 toolbar on my PC and include the shortcuts to many of my regularly used programs. I can still install the Office 97 toolbar with Windows 10 but receive the following error message when
    clicking on the shortcut icons in the tool bar. "Cannot run this program of open this file". Is there a way around using the Office 97 tool bar to store shortcut program icons which will launch the program when clicking onto the icon in this tool bar?
    Alternatively is there a way to install a second tool bar from the task manager which will sit on top of the screen and allow short cut program icons to be stored on it becoming available for automatic running when I click the mouse over it?

    Office xp shortcut bar Icons do not display

    It's been a dozen or so years since I last worked with Office XP/2002 but have you tried right-clicking each of the icons and choosing Properties then at the bottom click the Change Icon? Doing things on Win8.0/8.1 and 10 became more problematic with old programs, might be because of the Tiles feature.
