Annoying Hypertext Warning

How to disable hyperlink warning messages in 2007 Office programs

When you include links in PowerPoint, or other '07 applications, you may get this admonition:
Opening "path/filename".
Hyperlinks can be harmful to your computer and data. To protect your computer, click only those hyperlinks from trusted sources.
Do you want to continue?

To disable the hyperlink warnings in 2007 Office programs when an http:// address or an ftp:// address is used, you must create a new registry subkey.

To do this, follow these steps:

  1. Click Start, and then click Run.

  2. In the Open dialog box, type regedit, and then click OK.

  3. In Registry Editor, locate one of the following registry subkeys:


    Note You only have to modify one of these registry subkeys. You do not have to modify both of them.

  4. Click the registry subkey, point to New on the Edit menu, and then click Key.

  5. Type Security, and then press ENTER to name the key.

  6. On the Edit menu, point to New, and then click DWORD Value.

  7. Type DisableHyperlinkWarning, and then press ENTER to name the entry.

  8. In the right pane, right-click DisableHyperlinkWarning, and then click Modify.

  9. In the Edit DWORD Value dialog box, click Decimal, and then type 1 under Value data.

    Note A value of 0 enables the hyperlink warning message. A value of 1 disables the hyperlink warning message.

  10. Click OK.

  11. Exit Registry Editor.

Scanner, No Insertions

2007 is lacking

You can still scan images into Microsoft Publisher and a few other programs, but not the big three.

"Yes, unfortunately, the Insert from Scanner and Camera feature was removed in Office 2007.
This was a difficult call, but I think for the best of the product overall. The feature supported a limited number of scanners and the camera support had not been updated for some time.
We came to the conclusion that most users would be better off using the software that came with their camera, scanner or even built into Windows, to get their images from their device, to the file system, and then use the Insert Picture command to get them into Office.
The downside, is that for some users, this feature did work and so will be missed."

Mark Jaremko, Senior Program Manager

"The From Scanner or Camera option for adding pictures to a presentation, photo album, or workbook is not available in Microsoft Office PowerPoint 2007 or Microsoft Office Excel 2007.

Instead, you can add pictures from your camera or scanner by downloading the pictures to your computer first, and then copying them from your computer into PowerPoint or Excel."
How to insert scanned images in Office 2007

You could also use the Microsoft Document Imaging/Scanning application.
About Microsoft Office Document Imaging

BTW, when the article calls for clicking on the Scan button, it's actually the picture of a scanner.

Menus in 2007

Curmudgeon candy

I have not tried this product, because I'm forcing myself to eat the dog's food.

If you can't stand the ribbon, you might want to take a look.

Bring back the Office 2003 menus and toolbars to your copy of Microsoft Office 2007.

Frustrated by endless searches for features on the Ribbon? Download and install this software and easily use the familiar main menu, the standard toolbar and formatting toolbar in Office 2007, as you did in Office 2003.

All new features items of Microsoft Office 2007 have been added into the main menu and toolbars.
  • Classic Menu for Word 2007
  • Classic Menu for Excel 2007
  • Classic Menu for PowerPoint 2007
