Don’t call it a comeback—please, we really mean it, don’t call it that. Clippy, the infamous Office Helper Bot from the Microsoft Word days of yesteryear is making a triumphant return, at least for April Fools’ Day. Users who launch a Word document from Microsoft Office Online will see the crafty paper clip returned to his home in the bottom right-hand corner of the document. As always, he’s ready to help solve whatever Word issues you’re having.
Of course, Microsoft knows that not everyone is using Office Online and wanted to make sure you didn’t miss Clippy’s big comeback. The company announced through its TeleNet blog a new product called SmartClippy, which turns any old paper clip into a makeshift Clippy with the help of some googly eyes.
