I have a very annoying situation. I don't know the terminology so I'll have to use explanations as I understand them.
When I open MS Work (Office 2010 Pro), there used to be a toolbar at the top (I think it's called a ribbon), which gave me options for such things as font, font size, font color, justification, etc. This was a "Home" tab. When I needed to do a "Save as" I would click on the "Home" tab and get the various save options.
Now that "Home" tab is the default tab. When I choose another tab, I can make one selection and the Home tab comes back. Plus, my default font has changed.
How do I change this?
Thanks for your help.
Right click on an empty area of the ribbon, make sure it is not collapsed and shows below the Quick Access Toolbar.
Home is always default when you start Word. If you change tabs (Insert, Page Layout, etc.), you should stay in that tab until you click on another tab.
If this is not happening, then go to Control Panel, Programs and Features, click on Office, then Change, and then do an Office Repair. After, restart, make sure Office is at Service Pack 1 and then patch Windows and Office together with Microsoft Update.
See if that brings back proper behavior.
