The Microsoft Office Manager (MOM) is not included on the Microsoft Office 2001 for Mac CD-ROM, as it was with earlier versions of Microsoft Office Macintosh Edition.


You can download the Microsoft Office Manager and Microsoft Office QuickView by browsing to the following Microsoft MacTopia Web site:
Microsoft Office QuickView installs a module on the Apple Control Strip that allows you to do the following:
  • Access to the Project Gallery with a single click.
  • Open the Office Address Book.
  • Create a new Entourage contact.
  • Review tasks and calendar events set in Entourage or other Office programs.


To work around this issue, you can add the Office programs to the Favorites menu by using either of the following methods:
  • Select the item in Finder. On the File menu, click Add to Favorites.

  • Hold down the CONTROL key and click the item in Finder. Then click Add to Favorites on the shortcut menu that appears.
To access the Favorites menu, click the Apple icon in the upper-left corner of the screen.


The version of MOM described in this article, which is available from the MacTopia Web site, works with Office 2001 and Office 98. This is the recommended version of MOM to use if Office 98 is installed on OS 9.x. If Office 98 is installed on an operating system earlier than 9.x, install the version of MOM that is available on the Microsoft Office 98 CD-ROM in the Value Pack.
