    When I use Word, normally there is a white area
    representing the paper where I type and a blue
    background. The white "paper" usually is about
    two thirds the width of the window. The other third
    is the blue background split equally on each side
    of the "paper". So in other words, one sixth blue,
    two thirds white, one sixth blue. The height of the
    "paper" is the whole window from top to bottom. In
    fact, it goes beyond the screen. I have to scroll down
    to see the lower portion.

    Above is what I normally see when I open a Word document.
    But now, when I opened a new document, the white area was
    about half its normal size. It's only about one third the width of
    the window and about three quarters the height of the window.

    I don't know why this happened all of a sudden. How do I get
    back the normal size document?

    Thanks.

    You've changed the View or Zoom in Word. What version of Word do you use?

    OK, thanks. I had zoomed out somehow.

    Just for reference, on the starter version there
    is no view tab. To zoom in or out there is a
    slider that looks like a volume control in the
    lower right hand corner that is used to zoom
    in or out.

    Thanks again.
