Default blank word document now includes a one row table which I cannot delete

I have a recent problem since working with a table.


Opening a blank word document always includes a one row table which I cannot delete.
Also if I open a previous document a table is added covering the whole document.

The only solution I can think of is to uninstall Microsoft 365 and reinstall Microsoft 365 can anyone please suggest another solution.
Many thanks Albie

I have tried on my laptop which is setup with the same Microsoft identity and on the same 365 and it works fine with no table showing. I'm stumped!

There is no table showing on my machine either.

Could it be that you have "Show text boundaries" ticked on that machine? To check this click on the 'File' tab then 'Options' at the bottom, then 'Advanced'. In there scroll down to "Show document control" and look for "Show text boundaries". Ensure it is unticked.

Glad it worked. If you could mark the thread as 'Solved' this will clarify it for other members. You can do this via clicking on 'Thread Tools' header.
