WORD 2010-2007 : READING VIEW BY DEFAULT

I open a Word attachment directly from Outlook and it is displayed in a funny view mode.

This view mode is the READING VIEW (VIEW - READING LAYOUT)
It can be an intersting view when your Word document is a very long one with a table of contents, numbered headings ... because the view mode provides tools to make the reading of such a document easier and more comfortable (thumbnails, document maps ...). But users usually dislike that Word applies this view by default

Here below a document in Reading view

Solution

Turn off the command that applies this mode by default :

Display the Word OPTIONS dialog box
GENERAL Tab - OPEN E-MAIL ATTACHMENTS IN FULL SCREEN READING VIEW Option
