Turn Off the Reading Pane View in Micorsoft Word

If Word opens with the reading pane view by default and you do not want to have to change it each time here is what you need to do:

If you want to turn it off for the current session and return to print layout or normal view then you can click close on the Reading Layout toolbar. (Note: You can also press ESC or ALT+C to exit reading layout view.)

To prevent the reading layout view from opening automatically when you receive a Word document go to the Tools menu, click Options, click the General tab, and then clear the Allow starting in Reading Layout check box.
