Commandbar: Hide at startup

Many Addins install a new toolbar in Outlook and always display it - even if you'd rather keep it invisible.

This example demonstrates how to access a toolbar at startup via its name und make it invisible. Copy the code to the module "ThisOutlookSession", and set the variable 'Name' onto the name of the desired toolbar.

(If you don't know the toolbar's name: Right click on any toolbar and you'll get a list of all of the available names.)

Private Sub Application_Startup()
  On Error Resume Next
  Dim Bar As Office.CommandBar
  Dim Name As String

  Name = "Standard"

  Set Bar = Application.ActiveExplorer.CommandBars(Name)
  If Not Bar Is Nothing Then Bar.Visible = False
End Sub
