    I thought it gives you the option after closing it a few times.

    On the clipboard task pane, click Options, then clear "Show Office
    Clipboard Automatically".

    Want to use ordinary clipboard like notepad uses, office clipboard causes me
    to loose focus on the window I am using.

    Anyone know how?

    You must be using Office 2000, not Office 2003. You'll need to make a
    registry change. Have a look here:

    So close Micro$oft Office and open Open Office!

    Or does that logic escape you?

    Then again....Let's assume you know perfectly well which version of
    office you're running ;)

    I'm puzzled as to why would it concern you that the Office Clipboard
    stores copies in the background? AFAIK, this is by design, so I don't
    think you can stop it. But on my system at least it's completely
    unobtrusive.

    Normal Office behavior is to store the copy in its clipboard, but so
    long as you've disabled the option to automatically display the
    clipboard when you've copied something, this should be taking place
    completely in the background.

    What exactly are you copying? From what kind of application? There are
    standard Windows 2000/XP registry tweaks available that are supposed
    to prevent misbehaving background apps from stealing the focus -- one
    is available through TweakUI -- so maybe you could try that.

    That just puts it into the background, it still copies to it.

    I am having a connection to a unix server and trying to select items and
    instead stupid office copies the selected area into its clipboard, works
    fine as long as I don't have office open.

    If you are discussing problems with your computer in your work
    environment, then you should contact your systems administrator, rather
    than you yourself tinkering with your computer.

    Ok, now I get it. Agreed then -- this is definitely a design flaw in
    Office. You ought to be able to actually turn the background process
    off if you want. The help files imply that this is what happens when
    you chooose the right clipboard options, but as you've discovered it's
    just not so.

    Would love to but not really possible in work environment
    aside from the fact that open office is not DDE compatable.

    I am connecting to a unix server using software pc-Xware, on unix if you
    select some text it is copied automatically, office then automatically
    copies this into its clipboard and unselecting the area I have selected.
    This is a major pain if you want to do a cut.

    You are obviously finding your keyboard hard to use - do you need a
    system admin?

    There is a difference between tinkering with one's own computer(s) and
    tampering with an employer's property without permission.
