Office 2010 Not remembering preferences RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello all, 

    I have an issue with Microsoft Office 2010 - Word.

    The scenario: When I am trying to open a document in Word, that is stored on the server (they are template files) it will always open it up with the tracked changes turned on. I looked the review tab, turend tracked changes off, saved the document and then re opened it and boom! - tracked changes where there. 

    Im pretty sure that this is a local issue because other people are able to open up the same documents and tracked changes is not turned on by default and they are using a completely different machine.

    Any ideas guys?

  • It's in your Normal.dotm template.

    Open Word and then select File Open. In the dialog choose Templates and locate Normal.dotm.  With it opened now as a file go to the Review tab and turn Tracked Changes off. Then type something on the blank page and delete it. (This make Word reset the SaveFile switch) Now click File > Save and close out of Word completely.

    When you restart a fresh copy of Word ... everything should okay.
