When you open a document from the Find File results list, the status bar displays the file name and the number of characters in the document. When you click a toolbar button or the menu bar, the status bar changes to display the help text for the selected command. The status bar does not refresh unless you open a dialog box.


To refresh the status bar, open any dialog box, and then click Cancel.


We are researching this problem and will post new information here in the Microsoft Knowledge Base as it becomes available.
