    Just downloaded new 2016 Office and when open Word docs, the window opens too small. I don't want to hit the green button to maximize and fill whole screen because then you can't stack multiple windows. Is there a way to set default to open bigger like before? I'm on Macbook El Capitan 10.11, thanks.

    Did you try dragging and expanding the window? I don't know if that will reset the normal.dotm file or not but give it a try and see if it will change the default. I don't have a problem with it since it displayed OK (same as Word 2011) on my 27" iMac.

    One, Word generally recalls the previous Window configuration - create a new Blank Document, configure it the way and in the location you prefer, then Close the Window - your next Blank Document *should* resemble the previous document.

    Two. Option-Click on the Green Button; "Click" generally leads to a Full Screen Window, and Option-Click executes the Window>Zoom Command. Three, execute the Window>Zoom Command from your Mac's Menu Bar. In either of these two instances, I recommend closing that new Blank Document, with the same rationale - Word should recall the last Window configuration of the New Blank Document you created and closed.
