    Does anybody know how to set the zoom percentage to a certain number on boot up of microsoft word? It does it to 100% by default, but i like 75%. Can i get a hand?

    Open a blank document. Reset the zoom, then close Word.

    This will reset the zoom for the normal.dot document template.

    actually i'm pretty sure i got it to work

    i opened a new document, reset the zoom to 75, saved it as Normal1.dot in the same folder as Normal.dot then i deleted the old Normal.dot and save dthe Normal1.dot as Normal.dot and i'm pretty sure i got it.

    Thanks

    Hmm. I was going to suggest resetting the normal.dot file, but trying my suggestion on this box worked. I dunno, I don't allow changes to my normal template.

    Oh well, glad you got it (y)
