Recently, my standard screen monitor at work was replaced with a wide screen. Now when I open a multi-page MSWord document, it displays two pages at a time, side-by-side. I can change it to one page view at a time by clicking View, then One-Page.

How do I change the default, so it always shows One Page?

@gollum,
I just tested Word 2010 and however I SAVE the document last is how it reopens for me, whether one page at 100% or 4 page view at 60%. I tried it on several different docs. I looked in FILE, Options, Advanced Options and I do not see any default VIEW settings. The VIEW TAB has quick options but no Default that I see.

@DarkCrow,
If you press the f1 key or click the help link while Word is open, you should be able to do a search on the phrase "default page display" or "default page view."


The default view setting will most likely be found in the preference menus.

@Butrflynet,
The F1 Help works well. Thanks

From Microsoft:

http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/word-help/select-a-document-view-HP005190045.aspx

" Note You can't set a default for all documents that you view in Word, because the view setting is stored with each individual document as a document property. You can save your document in the view with which you want it to open. Documents that you receive from others will open with the view in which they were previously saved."

@DarkCrow,
You should be able to set the default page view for the blank page template used when creating new documents. That would then give new documents the same setting unless intentionally changed and saved.

@Butrflynet,
One would think so, but neither I nor Gollum can seem find that function. Have you the steps to do so? ty

@gollum,
With word 2010 and 365/2013 you have a little slider down at the bottom right of the application screen which adjusts page size; simplest is to adjust it upwards until you just see the one page.

@DarkCrow,
This is for modifying the blank template.

Also, try the suggestions in this help topic question on the view page subject. Seems to be a common problem for people needing help with.

@Butrflynet,
Thanks. I like headgorilla's response in the MS post. I hope gollum is getting all this.

@DarkCrow,
DarkCrow-
Yes, thank you. I have MSWord 2003 at home and MSWord 2007 in the office, but I am trying to apply it.
