Word: Disable Reading Layout

When someone emails a Word document to me, and I click to open and read it, it opens in this odd "Reading Layout". It sort of resembles a "storybook" layout. I just want to see the document as it will print without wrestling to get it to look normal. Here's how to disable that pesky feature forever...

In Word 2003,
1. Click Tools, Option
2. Click the General tab
3. Unclick the box "Allow starting in Reading Layout"

In Word 2007
1. Click the Office Button
2. At the bottom of the panel, click Word Options
3. Clear the box "Open e-mail attachments in Full Screen Reading view"

Happy Clicking!
