  2. Click on the General tab

    In the Word Options menu, select the General tab located at the top of the left menu bar.

  3. Uncheck the appropriate box

    At the bottom of the window, under Start Up Options, uncheck the box next to “Open e-mail attachments and other uneditable files in reading view.” With this box unchecked, Word opens files in Print Layout view by default. This view allows you to view the document as it would appear when printed.
