Windows 7: Set Word 2000 so That the Options I Use Open at the Default

Set Word 2000 so That the Options I Use Open at the Default

I'm still using Win7/Pro x64 and Office 2000. I'm pressed for time until early 2020 when I hope to have more time for an orderly transition to Win10/Pro x64 and open source document and spreadsheet software. Once you get to be my age you are careful about not rocking the boat because there is a significant risk you might drown instead of righting it and getting back into it.

I've noticed that when I click on my 'QuickLaunch' icon for Word, the document that opens must be using different 'Options' settings. I need to reset what it opens so that the All the formatting marks in the Tools/Options/View menu are requested.

Is there an easy way to restore this? I'm downsizing to fit into a retirement community and now is not the time to research such a topic.

Thanks,
baumgrenze

What do you want to see that you're not seeing when Word opens? I assume you have the Tools on the toolbar and you can open Options\View.

Yes, I can set the Options\View so that I see all the formatting marks. It makes it so much easier to check to see what is going on.

What I had, but no longer have, is having that setting be the default when I open Word from the Quick Launch Bar.

The same is true if I open a new document using File/New.

Thanks for responding,

Just to be clear, you're saying that the settings you make in View don't stick when you close Word or File\New?

Yes, the settings are lost each time.

As I approach 80 I'm having more lapses of memory.

Have you tried opening a blank document, making the settings and then saving the document by it's default name? Kind of grasping at straws here.
