I copied and pasted web page downloaded into a word document.

Know every time i open MSword the web page appears and i cannot remove it.

even when i click the icon new blank document the web page i downloaded appears all the time
the only way to delete the web page i found was to higlite the web page and press the delete button. :whistling: :blink:

Hi rollyt,

I think I can help you.

Without Word running search for a file called "normal.dot" and delete it.

It's the standard document template for Word and once you remove it another blank one will be created.

Let me know how you get on.

Thank You for letting me know

Just thinking about it, you remane it to normal.old then reboot and Word creates a new one, sorry

However, if it is running well now, no need to do anything with it
