Thank you. You have it spot on. In Word 2007 my files were opening zoomed in (enormous) and although I went through the process of changing the resaolution to the recommended one (applyiong and saving the changes) and that sorted it out whilst the file ws on my scren, as soon as I left that file and went elsewhere, when I came back it had zoomed in again. I have now got it so that the files look right but when clicking on a file within a folder, my scrfeen goes black before the file appears andsagain when I save the file. ny ideas?
