What is a ".pcb" file
Any customisation that you do to your toolbars and menus is stored in a ".pcb" file on the C drive
The larger your ".pcb" file the longer PowerPoint will take to open.
The file contains information on the position and visibility of all toolbars and menus including any custom toolbars and menus.
To totally reset all your toolbars and menus and to discard any personalisation exit PowerPoint and delete this file. A new one will be created the next time you open PowerPoint.
Changing the Width of Toolbar Controls
It is possible to reduce the width of any textboxes and drop-down lists, such as the Font, Font Size and Zoom controls.
Select (View > Toolbars > Customize) to display the Customize dialog box.
Select the toolbar control and hover the mouse over the controls border on the right hand size.
The cursor will change to a resizing handle allowing you to adjust the width of the control.
Tear Off menus
When a drop-down menu has a small blue or grey line across the top this indicates that it is actually a "tear-off" menu.
This means that you can drag the menu options away from the drop-down menu to display a stand alone toolbar.
