Single page and changing default

Experts,
When I open a document that has multiple pages in Word 2010 I am not interested in seeing the pages side by side.
Also, I would like to change the default from normal to no spacing for a new document.

In Word options there is a section that Microsoft has described as 'Popular'. The item 'Open email attachments in Full Screen Reading view' can be reset if that view is not popular with you.

For the spacing, right click on the Normal style and select Modify from the pop-up. Choose the 'New documents based on this template' option.  Click Format, and select Paragraph and set the line spacing to suit you. Then OK, OK. to save the setting in the current (probably Normal) template.

Item 1:
When I open a multipage document I would prefer single page not side-by-side page. Your suggestion did not change anything.
Item 2:
Next to the Normal template is No Spacing format. I'd like that to be how my nornal works.

Apart from opening from Outlook, in general, the initial view setting is saved with the document. If you see multiple pages, then change the Zoom setting (from the the View tab) for that document.

You can change the Normal paragraph style for Normal template (the two 'Normal' names are not linked) by following the instructions in the second paragraph of my first comment.

If your application is not working in that way, then let us know. Your Word installation may have a particular problem.

could the screen size have something to do with it. I have a 23" monitor.

Have you tried adjusting the setting in the Zoom group on the View tab?
