Word problems

suddenly my word blank document (Doc1) has adjusted the right hand tab, which means I cannot use more than about 2/3rds of the page width. Can anyone advise how to reset the default please?

A strong possibility and regular cure for this sort of thing is to accept that Word Normal template is corrupt.

Come out of Word - find Normal.dot wherever it is, and delete it.

Since this is an essential part of Word and covers many of its doings, Word will oblige and on opening again, will make a brand new Normal document template for you.

tried that - didn't work. Thanks anyway

Normal.dot not found in a search. Any other ideas please?

I'm flummoxed!

Try a search for (Word) templates (I'm out of my depth for the next bit,)just maybe it is partly wrong-named. Be very sure it is the one you are looking for if you delete it!

If you have to post back give yourself more help in this forum, by saying which versions of Windows and Word you are using.

found it - had to look in 'hidden files and folders'. Hopefully now resolved thanks chaps.
