Most of us use the basic Microsoft Office commands of Copy and Paste on a daily basis. Nothing too exciting there. However, I often get annoyed with the Paste Options pop-up which shows up each time I paste something into a Word document or Excel sheet. The pop-up menu has a few useful options, but it mostly gets in the way and likes to linger around longer than necessary, slowing me down. Are you fed up with the Paste Options pop-up? Let’s get rid of it!
Editor Update 12/4/2016 – Although the screenshots below were taken from Word, this tip applies to all Microsoft Office products (Word, Excel, Powerpoint), and versions including 2010, 2013 and 2016.
Step 1 – Click the File > Options.
Once you’ve unchecked it, Click OK to exit and save changes.
Now when you paste items into Microsoft Office documents, you will no longer be plagued by the Paste Options. Albeit, the Popup can be useful, but the majority of the time it just gets in the way.
