Disable Pop up "Continue typing in Office 2003 menu key sequence..


Can Elber

Hello all,
I can say that I am a pro at the previous XL version-2003. And I am nearly
using keyboard shortcuts for all of the commands. But in this new version,
for instance when I try to use "Alt+E+S" key sequence for "Paste Special",it
is really slowing me down because I have to type slowly first letter of the
sequence(Alt+E) and wait for this "nonsense" pop up then continue typing for
the rest of the sequence(Alt+E+S) everytime. Otherwise the command is not
detected by XL 2007. In 2003 version, I can give this command very fast with
the keyboard shortcuts.

Is there a way to disable this pop up "Office 2003 Access Key: Continue
typing in Office 2003 menu key sequence..."?
For a professional XL user ,I can say that this version can drive me crazy,
and really slowing me down.

Thank you so much for all replies.

Did anyone ever figure this out - I have the exact same capability with 2003 Office and the exact same issue with Office 2007 onwards.

I would like to simply disable this (I don't know the old Office 2003 shortcuts anyway, but the ALT key is used for many of my self-defined keyboard shortcuts and I often find myself on the 2003 menu access by error, which is annoying and slows me down) Anyone know how to this could be disabled?
