I am new to Windows XP and on the desktop taskbar My Documents keeps showing
up. I've tried to delete it but everytime I open MS Word it shows back up.
I've tried locking the Taskbar but that won't keep it off. Is there anyway
to keep My Documents off the Taskbar - I don't want it there!

what happens when you close MS Word? Does it disappear?

No, the My Documents shortcut stays on the taskbar.

Where is it at exactly- is it in the Quick Launch, showing as an open
explorer window on the taskbar, or in the system tray? How do you open
Word - do you have a shortcut on the desktop? If so, what are the
properties of the shortcut, specifically, what is the target and
startup location? Does it do it if you go to Start - Run - Winword
{Enter}?

Hover cursor on taskbar, right click, go to Toolbars, a sub-menu should appear, un-click My Documents in list and it should disappear from the taskbar.

Thanks Touch Base. I tried that and it didn't work. Actually, I right
clicked on the desktop; went to display properties; desktop; customize
desktop and unclicked My Documents but it still shows up! It will disappear
but once I open MS Word it pops back onto the task bar.
