Word 2010: how do I change default viewing zoom of document?

Q: Word 2010: how do I change default viewing zoom of document?

I have got Microsoft Office 2010 installed on Windows Vista and on Windows 7, and when I open a document in Word, I would like to view it at a zoom of 100% instead of the default zoom of 150%. I tried to follow the instructions over here in order to reduce the zoom permanently, but the macros simply disappear each time I close Word and open it again. I also followed the idiot's guide to installing macros as indicated in the link above, and the macros worked...but as mentioned before, they refuse to stick around.

What do I do in order to prevent the macros from disappearing?

Thanks in advance for your help

Preferred Solution: Word 2010: how do I change default viewing zoom of document?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Word 2010: how do I change default viewing zoom of document?

i've never needed macros - i use the zoom slider at the bottom-right of the document window.

with saved documents, it seems that the zoom level is saved with the file - so if you saved at 100%, it will open later at 100%.

to set the level for new blank documents, use the slider, then close down word - the next new document will appear at that same level, with no need to save.

that's how it works for me, anyway.

just tested, and it keeps the level after a reboot too.

I find the 100% setting for reading emails in Outlook 2010 too small and would like to set 150 or 200% as a default but I can't find any facility for this and I have to adjust the setting manually every time. Can anybody advise me please?

A:Outlook 2010 reading pane zoom default

Hello again urbanspaceman1

You have two options for doing this:

Option 1:
Create a new email type something and go to the "zoom" feature on the top right.
Select the percentage% you want the fonts to be displayed at.

Note: The fonts may not appear large when you are viewing them on the reading pane or double click open the email. For that view you will have to always manually zoom it yourself on the right corner in the bottom but you will be able to see the fonts large when you hit reply after doing the 2 points mentioned above.


Option 2:

Change your DPI settings following this tutorial:

I will search for similar stuff.

I just installed Windows and Windows made the default zoom for text and other objects to 125%. Is it possible to change the default back to 100%?

A:How to change default zoom in Display

Your screenshot shows the 100% being selected and Apply button greyd out, not functioning. This means that you have already 100% selected and in use; the Apply button is visible and functioning only when when you change a value, not visible and functioning when the selected value (in this case 100%) is already set.

I use Office 2008 on a Mac. I want to make all documents always open at the same zoom level -- say, 125% (which is actually only about 80% size for some reason). I saw an answer by Anne Troy about some lines of visual basic code, but it appears that may only work on a PC.
Here is her solution:
Can anyone tell me how to do that on a Mac?

A:default Word zoom level on a Mac

Try recoording a new macro all it has to do is zoom to 125% and then stop the recording.

Place it in the Normal.dot and name it auto_start or similar, I think that shoud do the trick.
At least I epect that the MAc version also uses a Normal.dot to save it's settings.
If it doesn't, you create ablank docuemnt with this macro in it and save it as anyname.dot and place in the wrdtsrat forder.

Hello, all~

I recently received a new computer from my company's PC support folks and somehow they've set things up such that, under Control Panel\Appearance and Personalization\Display, "Medium" is set as the "(default)" font zoom.

I've set my preferred size to Smaller and rebooted, but there are some cases where the OS looks to that Default setting when rendering fonts - the easiest example is following a reboot: the fonts on the login screen are rendered at the Default zoom size.

So, my question is, how do I change the system default font zoom?

Thanks in advance,

I've been trying to create a Task in Outlook from a Word Document that I have created on this computer. The idea is that a shortcut to the document is created as an Outlook Task. Click on the shortcut, and voila - there is the document.

The "Create Microsoft Office Task" icon DOES send the document to Outlook as a Shortcut in a Task, however, when I open the task, Outlook says:"Outlook blocked access to the following potentially unsafe attachments: Shortcut to 'document name'."

It's NOT an unsafe attachment; Outlook WILL OPEN this document if I send it as an email attachment. Outlook will open .docx files types.

This is a one person computer...no network, no sharing. And this problem has been driving me crazy. This would be a wonderful feature, if I can get it to work.

Anyone have any ideas what I (or Outlook) are doing wrong?

Thanks for your help

A:Creating a Task in Outlook 2010 from a Word 2010 Document

I think this will do the job for you:
Add & Create Outlook 2010 Tasks From Word 2010


You can create a task from Word 2010 document and save it under Outlook 2010 tasks. This feature is by default concealed but you can make it apparent on Quick Access toolbar and use it directly.

In order to use this feature, you need to make this feature apparent on Word 2010 Quick Access Toolbar, head over to Quick Access Toolbar and from small drop down button click More Commands.

You will reach Word Options dialog. Hit drop-down button present beneath the Choose commands and select All Commands. Now scroll-down the list and find Create Microsoft Outlook Task command. Select it and click Add (>>) to show it on Quick Access toolbar pane. Once added, hit OK.

First save the document and then select any portion of the text in the document from which you want to create the task, from Quick Access toolbar, click Outlook task button.

Upon click, it will create Outlook task for the Word document and you will reach Outlook Task dialog where you can set Start and Due date for the task and add more information about it. Save & close the task to view it under Outlook tasks.

When opening task in Outlook 2010, you can also view the document from which it was created from, just double-click the document to open it.

I am running Windows Vista and have MS Office 2007 installed. Somehow, the zoom percentage in MS Word has been changed to 476%. I have attempted to change it back to 100%. These are the steps I have followed. After doing these steps and reopening Word, the percentage is still on 476%.

1. Open the document or template that you want to save with a particular zoom setting.
2. On the View tab, in the Zoom group, click Zoom.
3. Choose your preferred zoom setting....which is 100%.
4. Add and delete a single space in the document or template.
5. Click the Microsoft Office Button, and then click Save.

When I choose 100% after clicking the view tab, the document/template appears as 100%, but when I do the last 2 steps, and save it....then close and reopen Word....the Zoom is back to 476% and did not save the change. I am not sure I am doing step 4 correctly (Add and delete a single space in the document or template). After opening, I hit the space bar to add a single space and then "Delete" key on my keyboard. I am not sure this is what I am asked to do in No. 4

Any suggestions on correcting this issue.? My font is huge and unable to use Word.

This is for a friend so I don't have access to the computer yet. She downloaded a word document from her hotmail by clicking on download then open instead of save. She was working on the file and then she stated she went to File > Save. She did not get prompted to save the file in a different location (that usually happens on other Office versions).

She went back to Word but cannot locate the file in her open section or the recent document list. She is on Windows 7 so I finally found the temp folder for her computer but could not locate the temporary file that would have been saved.

Is there any other locations other than the temp folder and the default folders that the file could have been saved? Personally I don't think it saved at all.

Some how my daughter accidently changed the default setting so that when you open up the Word Program, the defaults are set at an 88 font size, a font style no one uses, text already in the normal blank page and everything is light grey in color.

How do I go into the word program and change it so that when you open up "Word" the default is set at something that most of us can use for a normal document without allows having to go in and change everything?

A:Word Document - default font

Find and delete all occurrences of "normal.dot" on the PC, when Word is not open.

When Word finds none when starting a new blank one with the standard defaults is created.

It's a hidden or system file so depending on your Windows version you may need to enable the viewing of this file type to find it to delete it.

It must exist, so if your search is not successful, its the file type that is the problem, preventing you viewing it.

I work at a small accounting firm and earlier this year we purchased some new laptops which run 64 bit Windows 7. Since then, we have started to upgrade Office on our computers. On one of the Windows 7 computers, I installed Office 2010 last week. We also use CCH's program ProSystem fx Engagement. Now, when opening Word inside of Engagement (not sure if this happens outside of Engagement because the user can't recall it happening) an error occasionally comes up which says "error creating obj document." The user hits okay, which is the only option, and then receives a second error that says "obj document is nothing." She then again selects okay and moves on. It doesn't seem to cause any issues with functionality so I'm not rushing to fix it but we want to get rid of the errors and hopefully have an idea of how to correct it in the future.

Please keep in mind I'm a CPA helping with computer issues. Since we are relatively small, we don't actually have our own IT department or person. We have to go outside. I do pretty well keeping my home computer up and running if I can research the issue and find a solution. I've looked for a while and can't find a solution in a dumbed down language that seems to fit the issue.

Is there a mechanism in Word 2010 (and also Excel, perhaps) which allows me to DELETE the document I'm currently viewing?

I'd imagine it would be under the "File" menu if it existed, but I've not found it so far.

An example of its use: I prepared a document of things to take to a reunion. My PC was still on when I got home, displaying the list (which I'd saved, as I went along). I didn't know what I'd called the document, and I wasn't certain where I'd filed it, but I know I wanted to delete it.

A:How to delete the current document in Word 2010?

Of course you can't delete open files!
But you can hover over file->open to see the last files you opened. Open the one you want. Do a fake "save as" to see the folder it's in.

Now you know the file name and location, so delete it in windows file explorer

Hello sirivarin,

Welcome to the forums.

Only thing I can think to cause this is that you inadvertently saved the file with the .dotx extension. If you need to keep the file, open it and save as a .docx file, then delete the file with the dotx extension.

Please keep us posted.

I am trying to format a very long manuscript and am having a page numbering issue.

I know how to link/unlink headers and footers and create numbering within sections. So, my chapters are sectioned and numbered and each chapter starts with page 1.

I also need a running total of pages. I can't seem to have two formats in the same header (a section page numbering and an overall page numbering) so I planned to put the chapter numbers in the headers (unlinked to previous) and the total page numbering in the footer because they can still be linked.

Sounded good, but when I format the page numbering to start with '1' in the header, even though it is unlinked, the page formatting changes in the footer.

Is there any way around this?

Hello experts, I have a word file that appears to have been corrupted. We were working on it through SharePoint and at some point the style information seems to have been corrupted. When you use the style inspector and click on a location in the text it will say the correct information. For example a level 2 heading will look and appear as a level 2 heading in the text and have the correct style attached. However, when you use the navigation pane or create a table of contents nothing is indented as it should be (level 2 is not subordinate to level 1). I have read that there are table of contents styles in Word but I don't know how to change these. Does anyone know if this would fix the issue?
I tried manually to 'reset' a few styles (highlight text and reclick 'level 2 header' ) which fixed the issue in that instance. However, this is a long document (150 pages) and I wouldn't want to do this for the whole document.

The first thing you must do is copy the file from the stick to the HD. Don't make matters worse by trying to work with it from the stick. There's a possibility the document is already corrupted, but the problem you describe may not really be document corruption.

The conventional solution is this:
In the Print dialog, switch to another printer and then back, or close Word and delete the files you find by searching for
Then restart Word.
If that doesn't help, then, since this is Word 2003, there are a couple of other things you can try:

This new word is annoying. I'll be typing a paragraph and then as I go down the page lines I just typed will disappear, or they will blend into another which makes them unreadable. Sometimes single spacing will turn into double spacing, or into no spacing. Sometimes lines of text will be doubled under each other. All the text is still there the way I typed it, but it's not visible when reading over the document. If I want to go back to read what I wrote I have to insert returns into these invisible lines of text to have them appear again. If I scroll up then I can't see the last lines of what I wrote, they are not even there until I again have to insert my cursor and then start pressing enter. I don't understand why everything keeps shifting around like that. Shouldn't it remain static throughout? It's the most annoying thing to have to type a document and have to go through these magic tricks every time.

Hi all,

A:Solved: Word/Excel 2010 Adding text before each line in a Document

Hi Matt,
It's probably a little cleaner to do it in Excel than in Word, but also a few extra steps. In Word:

You can run a find a replace. Without including the quotes, find "^p" (the paragraph symbol) and replace with "^p1 " (there's a space after the 1). This replaces the paragraph break at the end of each line with another paragraph break and then "1 " at the beginning of the next line. The problem with this method is that the first line won't have a 1 in front of it (because there's no paragraph break before that line) and the last line will have a stray 1 after it. But this should be relatively minor cleanup.

Alternatively, in Excel:

Insert a column to the left of your names. Without including the quotes, enter "1" in the first cell and copy it down your spreadsheet. Insert a column to the right of your names and enter this formula (assuming your names are now in column B):

=A1&" "&B1

This should give you the result you're looking for in column C. Hope that helps.

Please help point me in the right direction.  I checked the File association on Internet settings and document type docx is associated with Word, but it won't open.

Try refining this symptom description.  What exactly do you mean by "it won't open"?  Answering that might explain why you are posting this in an IE forum.  E.g. right-click, Copy Shortcut whatever it is that you are calling
a "broken link" and Paste it here.
Otherwise, try right-click, Save target as... to put the file into your Downloads (Ctrl-j) and then use right-click, Properties to find its
full path and name.  Note that that would be quite different from what the Copy Shortcut step would have shown.
Next I suspect that the Set Associations GUI tool may not be showing you the correct information.  FWIW it certainly doesn't show me the correct information in W8.1.  So, I would try checking if you have an explicit association and file type combination
by using the assoc and ftype commands in a cmd window.  In fact, instead of just showing the ftype for the current association I would use this:

If the form has been designed as a protected Word document "form" (probably that is the case since it is a "legal form") then they may have formatted it in that manner because that is how they want it filled in, with your content in blue?

I have looked in control panel and looked at the file associations and there too I can not find Word 2010 when I try to alter the association of docx.

When you're done, at the very bottom of the screen, IF you have this box, don't forget to check it: "Apply to all future documents." (This option appears on some Word Options pages but not all.)

In MS Word 2010, the default font for a new blank document is set for Calibri size 10. I went though the procedure to change the default size to 12. I've attached screen shots of the two dialog windows that open as part of this process. Opening a new document still has the font set at 10. This happens even if I do not close the program and open another new document.

I see no attachments, but the simplist way is to click the small arrow, that is in the lower right corner of the Font area.
It will open the Font settings pane. Make the changes that you what and then click on the "Set as Deault" button in the lower left corner of the pane.

For Word 2010 on a Windows 10 computer, I want to change the default font and size. I had no trouble changing the font from Calibri to Arial but have been unsuccessful in changing the font size from 10pt to 12pt. I have set the default as 12pt Arial several times, but each time I open a new Word document I find the font size has reverted to 10pt. What am I missing? Thank you.

Outlook 2010 will display the the email in whatever font it was typed in, and if it's a HTML mail, in whatever fonts is set by the HTML tags. However is there a way to set a default font the Outlooks displays the messages in, just like you can set the default font in web browsers, regardless of what the developers specified.

The reason for this is because most emails are typed in Times New Roman and MS Mincho which aren't suitable for LCD screens. I want everything to be displayed in Verdana and Meiryo.

Have a problem with the XLSTART default file. I change the comma format and save as book.xltx in the user\name\appdata\roaming\ms\excel\xlstart.
When you first open Excel,it opens a book with the correct number format (no decimal places). But when you try to create a new file, it reverts to the standard US number format with two decimal places.

I had Outlook all working fine until I decided to move the default location of the My Docs folder that contained the default delivery location.

After doing this Outlook just stopped working so I have now tried everything to get it working again. I have put the My Docs folder back in its original place, and I have also completely removed and re-installed office 2010 but to no avail.

I have narrowed the problem down and figured out that before I can sort the problems out I need to delete the Delivery location of the email address but I don't know how to do it.

Any help here will help.

Background: I have been using windows since 3.11 when I was in second grade and we got rid of our DOS box. I consider myself a proficient user to highly proficient user, having built 4 of my own machines. I have installed Office 2010 Professional and the program works.

Setup: Lenovo ideapad y500 purchased January 2013 with Windows 8

Problem: Windows will not allow me to set Word 2010 as my default program for opening .docx or other valid formats. I can open the documents from within the program, just not by default.

Steps Taken:
1) Right-click file > choose default program > Word 2010 not available > browse for and specify location > set program to default. Result = System Message "This app can't run on your pc."
2) Consulted Microsoft support site to search for solution. Same result.
3) Contacted Microsoft support hotline to request help with issue. Was informed that, because I didn't fully understand the intricacies of this new operating system within 90 days, and I can't make two Microsoft products work properly together, I will need to pay $150 for support. They used more tact, but that's the gist. I can visit any Microsoft store to get free support, the nearest being 150 miles away.

Desired Resolution: One of you fine people have seen this before and know how to set that default application. All of you who read this are also annoyed with Microsoft's awful customer service. Microsoft replaces my OS with Windows 7, which I loved. I pro... Read more

A:Help MS Office 2010 Professional - Word - Default Program

Hi tmf,

What happens if you try the following...? :
First locate WinWord.exe on your disk; probably something like C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office14

The "Program Files" bit might be "Program Files (x86)"
Follow the steps in this tutorial. Default Programs - Associate a File Type or Protocol in Windows 8
In step 3 of the tutorial - can you take a look up and down the list; are *any* file types associated with Microsoft Word?
At step 5 in the tutorial, select the option to "look for another app on this PC" and navigate to WinWord.exe in the path you found in step (a) above.
If you get the same error you mentioned in your post, post a screenshot of the error:

Is there a way to dictate, in Microsoft Word 2010, that any newly-created document will have my own Style in place as the default one, or whatever the term might be, if anything, that decides what the starting set-up is? It's currently the font Calibri, size 11, 10.5 Multiple line spacing, 1" margins on all sides, etc. My preferences are different in every way, so I manually change all of that every time I make a new document.

A:Changing the default Style in Microsoft Word 2010?

Have you tried changing the normal template? I was able to find directions on how to find that for 2003 here, but it's the same process for 2007 and I would imagine 2010. I don't have 2010 on this computer to double check.

Yesterday I bought a new laptop. Before I got rid of the old one, I backed up all my files. I was previously running office 2007 which uses .docx. This new laptop came with a key to be entered on the office website which would download and install Office Home and Student 2010. I copied all my old files onto this new laptop, however, I cannot set Word 2010 to be the default program to open .docx files. If i right click a .docx file and select 'Open with...' Word is not in the list of programs. If I browse, it is not in 'Program Files'. I am able to start Word from the start menu. I figured that if I do this, open the task manager, under applications right click on 'Document 1 - Microsoft Word' and select 'Go to process' it would show me the executable's title under the 'Processes' in the Task Manager, which it does (WINWORD.EXE). If I right click on this and select 'Properties' I get an error message

The specified path does not exist.

Check the path, and try again.'

I understand that Office 2010 uses Click-to-Run technology and that Q:\ is a drive created by Click-to-Run and that I cannot access this drive.

So if I cannot access WINWORD.EXE, how can I make Word 2010 the default program to open .docx. I can open Word and then from there open a file, but I would much rather be able to click a file from it's directory and have it open in Word.

Thanks in advance
