My kids have changed the settings on Word. Thats fine, they've got to learn and nothing is broken. However, I don't know how to get it back to the 'default' view. The one where you can see the tabs at the top and sides. Any advice please?
Do you perhaps mean the rulers? If so then you need to go to View and click Rulers. In Normal view this shows the ruler at the top and in Print Layout view it shows them at top and left. Both Normal and Print Layout are available under View on the menubar or via the icons at the bottom left of the page in Word. Just hover over the icons to read the tool tips.
