Microsoft Word saves the window placement and window size for each individually saved document. When you edit a document, its window size and placement are saved when the document is saved.
NOTE: References in this article to the Zoom Window key combination, COMMAND+OPTION+], apply to versions of Word for the Macintosh earlier than version 6.0
To change the window size or placement, follow these steps:
You cannot change the default window size for a new document; Word opens a new document in a full-size window. To start Word with a specific window size, create a template document that has the desired size, and start Word by double-clicking the template document. When you create a new document in this manner, remember to choose Save As from the File menu and change the name of the document.
If a document window, or a portion of it (such as the title bar) disappears from the screen, you can use the Zoom Window key command (COMMAND+OPTION+]) to return the document window to its default position.
