Copying and pasting items in Microsoft Office works great, but it also makes a Paste Options pop-up appear. This pop-up menu has a few useful options, but it also gets in the way and likes to linger around longer than necessary. Are you fed up with the Paste Options pop-up? Let’s get rid of it!
Click the File ribbon and then Select Options.
Click the Advanced tab and then Scroll down the right-pane window. Under the heading “Cut, copy, and paste” Uncheck the box labeled Show Paste Options button when content is pasted.
Once you’ve unchecked it, Click OK to exit and save changes.
Now when you paste items into our Word documents you will no longer be plagued by the paste bar. Albeit, the paste bar can be useful, but the majority of the time it just gets in your way.
