weird format on word document

Posted by babera (My Page) on

I don't know what I did or if I even did it, but when I open documents from e-mail any thing created in word (other than what I create myself) it comes up in a weird format.

I don't remember changing anything but I may have unknowingly. I have looked around to see if there is a re-formatting tab. I didn't find one but then again I don't know what I'm doing so if I did find one I may screw it up more.

Any computer guru's that care to help?

RE: weird format on word document

The plural of guru is gurus.

I'm not one.

Normally doc file settings are file specific, and one would open with whatever settings its creator gave it, but maybe the email system is doing something to it as it opens. Try saving the document first. Then open it from the folder it lands in. What happens?
