    After recent updates Word 2016 opens in half windows

    For the last few weeks Word 2016 opens in a small window on my 24" monitor. Even if I save a document in full window the program reopens in the smaller window.

    This has happened since the last two Office 2016 updates. The program is "up to date."

    Any clues??

    Thanks very much.

    I'm not sure what you mean by "half window". Could you post a screenshot of that.

    If it's the window could just hit the square next to the X to force it to a full size.

    Could also be the update changed the screen resolution, might check that.

    I've had success with such an issue in past versions of Windows by holding down the Ctrl key while closing a window, usually reopens as when closed.
