Navigation Pane Always open When Starting Word 2010? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Has there been a recent patch or update to Word 2010 that changed its behavior? For some unexplained reason whenever I open Word 2010 on either my laptop or desktop, the navigation pan is open with the new document. Word didn't behave this way before. The navigation pane would only open of I wanted it to. I've tried turing it off and shutting down, but when Word opens again, it is there. Any thoughts?

  • Hi,

    Try to check if you have selected this setting:

    View->Show->Navigation Pane. If so, when you start Word 2010, the Navigation Pane will appear automatically.

    Hope it helps.
