GENERAL DATA ENTRY ANNOYANCES

KILL CLIPPY

The Annoyance:

I can't tell you how many times I've been happily entering data, only to have that blasted paperclip "helper" thing elbow its way onto the screen. By the time I get rid of it, I've lost track of what I'm doing and it takes me forever to get back in the groove. If that Office Assistant really were a live office assistant, I'd have had fired him years ago! How do I make it go away?

The Fix:

Clippy is one of the most-hated Office "innovations" in history. Microsoft had the good sense to turn off Clippy and his companion Office Assistant characters by default in Excel 2002 (the Office XP version) and in later versions.
