Have you ever wondered how to disable the annoying Copy and Paste Popup box in Microsoft Office? Here’s how to disable it.
Most of us use the basic Microsoft Office commands of Copy and Paste on a daily basis. Nothing too exciting there. But, I often get annoyed with the Paste Options pop-up which shows up each time I paste something into a Word document or Excel worksheet.
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!
We’re going to disable the Paste Options box in Word, but this procedure also applies to Excel and PowerPoint.
Go to File > Options. Then, click Advanced in the left pane on the Word Options dialog box.
In the Cut, copy, and paste section, uncheck the Show Paste Options button when content is pasted box.
No More Annoying Paste Options Box
Now when you paste items into Microsoft Office documents, you will no longer be plagued by the Paste Options box. Yes, the popup can be useful, but the majority of the time it just gets in the way.
