Web Layout View
To leave Full Screen Reading view, click Close or press Esc. Doing so doesn’t close Word
altogether; rather, it returns you to a “normal” Word window with your document displayed
in Print Layout view.
By default, e-mail attachments open in Full Screen Reading view. If you find this
behavior annoying, you can change it in either of two ways:
● In Full Screen Reading view, click View Options, Don’t Open Attachments In Full
Screen to remove the check mark by the command.
● In any other view, click File to open Backstage view and then click Options. On
the General tab, under Start Up Options, clear Open E-Mail Attachments In Full
Screen Reading View.
Web Layout View
Web Layout view shows how your document would appear as a web page. Text wrapping is

the edge of the page (because there is no “page”), and there are no headers or footers.
Text wrapping and positioning of pictures and graphics observe the limited capabilities of
the HTML language and rendering by web browsers. Although this view is useful mainly
for working with documents to be viewed online, because of the way it wraps text to it the
window it’s occasionally handier than Print Layout view for the phase in document
preparation where you’re more interested in what the words say than how they’re laid out on the
page. Unlike Draft view, pictures and graphics are displayed.
Outline view displays your document’s headings as a hierarchical outline and shows tools
specifically for working in this view on the Outlining tab. For more information, see “Using
Outlines to Plan, Organize, and Edit Documents” on page 245.
Draft view shows only the text in the body of your document. Headers, footers, pictures,
and other graphics are not displayed, and line breaks might not accurately match how the
document will print. (Line break fidelity depends on the window width and zoom level.
Lines break at the margin or the window width, whichever is narrower.) In years past, when
computers were much less powerful than those available now, Draft view was commonly
used instead of Print Layout view, which could be dreadfully slow. With modern computers,
