Apply widow orphan control to entire document in word 2010?

I want to apply widow/orphan control to an entire document at once, and not just paragraph by paragraph. I went into the paragraph dialog box, Lind and Page Breaks tab, checked the widow/orphan control check box, chose Set as Default button and chose This document only the clicked OK, but it did not apply it to the entire document.

I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

What to do is display the Styles pane (Alt-Ctrl-Shift-S) select any paragraph with the style Normal. Now place the cursor in the styles pane over the Normal style, click on the arrow and select Modify.

Now select the Paragraph dialog box (at the bottom), Link and Page Breaks tab, check the Widow/orphan Control check box select OK and it will be applied to the entire document.
