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.
