Removing Customize Dropdown on a Custom Toolbar

I have an Access 2003 front-end database with custom toolbars. The toolbars
work fine.

One annoying feature is that at the far right edge of each custom toolbar
there a small dropdown arrow. When you hover over it with the mouse, a
ControlTip Text of "Toolbar Options" is displayed. If you then click on the
dropdrown arrow, it displays a popup menu of "Add or Remove Buttons", with a
fly-out menu with the toolbar name at the top and "Customize. .." at the

Normally you can use this to customize your menus and toolbars. In my case,
I disable the customization at run time, so both fly-out menus are
completely grayed out and unclickable.

So this small dropdown arrow to customize toolbars does absolutely nothing
and has no purpose. Is there a way to disable its display?

Note this extra dropdown arrow is not one of the controls in the toolbar,
which I can easily make visible or invisible. Not can I find any property
that disables this useless dropdown arrow and menu to Customize the

Any ideas?

Access 2000 and 2003. I have made a custom toolbar to allow users to filter by form, etc. The only things I want to appear on that toolbar are the 3 buttons to control filtering. At the right end of the toolbar there is a little arrow pointing down, and if the user clicks it, it says "Add or Remove buttons." I tried the properties, etc., but can see no where to get rid of this

Somehow I'm just missing something. I don't know how to catch when a user clicks on an item in a dropdown list for a dropdown style button on a toolbar. I create a new app. Form1. Add a toolbar. Add a button and make it's style dropdown. In the code I create a contextmenu and add three items. This is all fine. But when I click on one of the menu items I can't figure out how to know it's been clicked and what menu item it is.

I'm writing an Addin for Outlook using C#. I am able to create the interface to my Addin by adding Menus and Buttons to the Outlook Menu and Toolbar, respectively. I'd like to add one particular button to the Toolbar, but I'd like it to function like a menu. Basically, like the native 'New' button which has a small down arrow and drops down to show a list of items (e.g. Mail Message, Contact, etc.) which can be created. If you've got...

In access 2003, a toolbar has a dropdown to allow customizing. In the toolbar properties->options is a checkbox labelled Allow Customizing. Unchecking this doesn't prevent me from customizing the toolbar. Is this a bug? I could not find anything in the KB Is there something I'm ignoring? Is there a workaround? --

In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not.
