How to get rid of the web toolbar ...
There are four methods to be looked at. The first two use macros. If you don't know how to use macros like these, take a look at Macros and VBA.
Document-specific macro - put in "ThisDocument" object
Private Sub Document_Open() On Error Resume Next Application.CommandBars("Web").Enabled = False On Error GoTo 0 End Sub Private Sub Document_Close() On Error Resume Next Application.CommandBars("Web").Enabled = True On Error GoTo 0 End Sub
Global - Get rid of the Web Toolbar in Word
Sub ToggleWebToolbarEnabled() With Application.CommandBars("Web") .Enabled = Not .Enabled If .Enabled = True Then .Visible = True End If End With End Sub
See Template Basics for information about Normal.dot and other global templates.

I want my Web Toolbar information back! - Word 2007 - Word 2010
In Word 2007 and 2010 there is no web toolbar (or for that matter any toolbar). A poster wanted to know how to get the filename and path information provided by that toolbar. Here are two suggestions:
Solution 1 - use a field
Solution 2 - use vba
Sub ShowAddress() Dim strTemp As String strTemp = InputBox("This is the URL from the Web toolbar", "Excavated!", _ ActiveDocument.CommandBars("Web").FindControl(ID:=1740).Text) End Sub
The following code returns the same information without accessing the toolbar:
Sub ShowPathAndName() Dim strTemp As String strTemp = InputBox("This is the FullName of the ActiveDocument", "Excavated!", ActiveDocument.FullName) End Sub
