How to Disable Reading Layout in Word?

When you open Word documents from other sources, such as email attachments, they are automatically displayed in a "Reading Layout".

While this is supposed to make documents easier to scan through by repaginating to better fit your screen, many users find this a nuisance because it can mess up tables of contents, long paragraphs and lists.

If you'd like to disable this feature and open the documents in the default print layout instead, follow the instructions below:

1. Go to Tools > Options

2. Click the General tab and uncheck "Allow starting in Reading Layout"
3. Click OK to close the dialog box
