Office 2007: Stop Word Attachments from Opening in Reading View

Posted June 16, 2008 by Rob Rogers in Microsoft Office

When opening an emailed Word document in Outlook, Word opens the attachment in Reading View. While Reading View displays the document in an easy-to-read fashion, it does not display the document as it appear when printed. It also does not display anything with complex formatting.


1. Open Word 2007.

2. Click the Office Button and select Word Options.

3. Select Popular from the left pane. Uncheck the Open e-mail attachments in Full Screen Reading view checkbox.

4. Click the OK button.
