BETA: coooo might ignore your comment Beta (?!?!) Yep,,,, I use MS-Word every day. For some days it might stay on U.K,,,,, then for no reason it will go to US. I click on tools > language > set language and click on UK English. Sometimes I'll click on Default at the bottom. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ TECHNO: Regional & Lang: -- 'Regional Options' I see "English (United Kingdom)". In 'Languages > details' I see "Default = English (United Kingdom) United Kingdom"
In the next box (Installed services) I see: EN ENGLISH (United Kingdom) Keyboard United Kingdom
EN ENGLISH (United States) Keyboard US
I have the option to REMOVE one/both here, but wanted advice before deleting US,,,, as I don't know if it's s'posed to be there and actually used somewhere along the line. (Maybe this setting is because I have it set to UK at the moment. Next time it changes to US, i'll look again). ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ B.MAN: Is that in the Regional & Lang Details bit ? Will my machine ever need that US stuff at some point ? Can I put it back if I need to ?
If the regional settings suggestion etc are already done, you could try making the default Word template your own by opening a new document, setting paper size, margins, fonts, spelling etc to your own preferences - save this as a template with name like default_new.dot (i'm in Office 2000) in the Office templates folder and then exit Word completely. Search for .dot delete (or for safety rename old default template), rename your new template as the default.dot.
