Hi Wak, part of your suggestion worked but when I first load Word pro the welcome screen shows all the latest documents. When I open one of these to get on proper screen the number of recent files is altered, thanks for that bit, but can't get the first welcome screen to work, that still shows all latest files.
HI, I can't imagine why you wish to get rid of the files shown on the Welcome screen as they save a lot of searching, but if that's what you want:- Open any File, go to File/ User SETUP/ WP Preferences/ General Tab. Under "Other General usage Options" click the button to the right of the DISABLE box. On the Drop-down list put a tick next to "Welcome Dialogue" I think that will remove the Welcome Screen altogether which could be what you really want.
Hi Wak, couldn't get on PC Advisor last night but I tried your suggestions but when I got the General usage page mine doesn't have the disable button, what I have is as follows. Other general usage +load word pro maximised undo levels 0 +load files maximised recent files 0 load clear screen view +show file new dialog box measure in inches Markup options My word pro is part of Microsoft suite and is 2001 is yours a later version
My version is Lotus Word Pro 97 for Windows 95 and was on a free CD disc years ago. The above info is listed in the HELP file/ About Lotus Word Pro. You seem to be on the right General tab. Under "Other General usage Options", the first box beneath it is DISABLE and then KEYBOARD and then all the other stuff you listed. At the side of the DISABLE box, there should be a ticked button. Click this button and you get a drop-down box listing all sorts of alterations you can make including removing the Welcome Screen. See how you go.
