Default Word opens in Notebook

For the last few days, whenever I start Word I get the Notebook layout instead of just a blank page. I don't know how this happened, I haven't used Notebook in years.

When I try to get out of the Notebook, I can't. The only way I can get the normal Word is to open a recent Word document, then click on New.

Is there a setting where I can get rid of this annoyance?

Thank you.

Default default opening

I don't work on a Mac, but your problem suggests that the layout has been inadvertently changed in the template, although you also say that starting a new document opens properly. To me, this indicates that when you said "whenever I open Word," you are referring to existing documents, not starting by opening a new document to begin with. That would imply that you have inadvertently saved the change to one or more exisiting documents, and/or that a template beside the Normal template is attached to your existing documents. So, I think you need to open whatever template is attached to a document that opens in "Notebook" and make the change there.

I don't know what the "Notebook" layout referes to; it must be a Mac label. In any case, this probably falls in the View category of layout options.

Hope this helps.

Best,
Ulodesk

I did mean "whenever I open Word", that is to say, when I clicked on the Word icon.

And you're right, somehow the Notebook layout view had gotten selected. Weird!

I fixed it.

Thanks!
