Word Up, Disable Reading Layout

If you are anything like me or anyone I know, then you hate the Reading Layout that comes up in Word.  Yes, it’s been there a while and I’ve been hating it all along.  Kind of like that annoying drip from the bathroom faucet.  Today, I took the time out to figure out how to get rid of it… oh so simple… and I’m probably the last to know.

  1. On the menu select [Tools] –> [Options].
  2. Select the [General] tab.
  3. Uncheck [Allow starting in Reading Layout].
  4. Sit back and enjoy using Word once again.
