I was creating a resume and added a table to my Word 2010 document. The document is fine but I get this residual message "Move Table Column" that persists on my screen no matter what program I'm in. I have no idea why I'm getting this fixed message i can't get off my screen and would like to remove it.

Try restarting your computer.

 

There are very rarely screen repaint issues where something just "sticks" for no apparent reason and will not go away.  It seems to get "stuck in the buffer" and only purging the buffer by shutting down works.

 

If this persists after a shutdown (and if you're using Windows 10 do a Restart if you have Fast Startup enabled) then something else is up.

Thanks, your fix worked. I guess sometimes code gets "stuck" in the system until a reboot.

You're quite welcome.

 

I was once given "the rational explanation" for why something, typically a message but sometimes something else, just refuses to disappear from the screen but I've long ago forgotten all the details because it happens so seldom.  What I did remember is that it's virtually certain that only a shutdown/reboot cycle (and a real one, not the hybrid hibernation that is Fast Startup under Windows 8 & 10) will clear it.

 

Now you are another in the world who can pass along this seldom used piece of knowledge.

The thing that always troubles me with computer work is that you don't know what you don't know. A lot of fixes aren't intuitive and can't simply be "figured out." That's why it's great when others have already dealt with the issue can pass along their feedback. Thanks again.
