All of a sudden Word started displaying 2 pages side by side in one window. I tried changing the zoom and it didn't affect anything. How can I go back to seeing 1 page at a time?
To view a single page at a time, select the
View tab on the ribbon and click
The issue is with the zoom size. I solved this by setting the default zoom to 120%, and then only a single page is displayed by default.
To set it to 120% by default, you'd need to add a macro:
- When viewing any Word document, press Alt+F11 to activate the Visual Basic Editor
- Click on Normal on the left hand side
- Select Insert -> Module
Copy the following code into the module:
Sub AutoNew() With ActiveWindow.View .Type = wdPrintView .Zoom = 120 End With End Sub Sub AutoOpen() With ActiveWindow.View .Type = wdPrintView .Zoom = 120 End With End Sub
This will set the zoom percentage to 120% for every new document and for every document that you open. You can change 120 to another percentage if you prefer.
If you are in print view change to layout view then back to print view. This should reset back to a view of one page only.
