    Hi all,

    I've recently bought a new monitor (16:9) to replace my old one (4:3). When I open Word now, at 100% zoom the monitor is wide enough to have two pages side by side. As useful as this can be for some people, I don't like it!

    I've tried changing the settings myself, but have not found a way to have the 100% sized page in the middle. I have to zoom in to 120% and it's too big. I had a look on the Microsoft Office forums but nothing I found there was helpful.

    Does anyone have any ideas?

    I don't have 2007 here with me but check the View options (in older versions under View) and set it to the desired zoom, There is an option for multple pages, and maybe that one's on.
    The last setting is remembered and is reused.

    I tried changing the zoom settings but to get it to show just the one page, centred, I've got to have it at 120% and I can't use Word at that size. If I change the option to show one page, it defaults to 71% which is the level ALL of the page is in the screen.

    Well you can reduce the zoom % to 100%.
    The fact remains that the zoom factor is related to your screen size
    I have a 22" at home and a two-page view gives met 2 x A4 side by side,

    Then do NOT use your program in the "Full Screen" mode. resize it so you can read the full page width, without turning you head, just your eyes.
