    Thumbnail pane - wish to turn off autmatic display (Word 2003)

    Unexpectedly and abruptly on 8/25/05, Word 2003 on my computer now displays the Thumbnail pane whenever I change views in a document. While I can turn off the Thumbnail pane from the View pull-down menu, as soon as I change views (such as print preview), the Thumbnail pane is automatically displayed when I return.

    I have tried deleting normal.dot and resetting the toolbars with no affect.

    I'd appreciate any thoughts or suggestions.

    Thanks1

    Go to Options/View and uncheck "Show Startup Task Pane"

    Startup task pane is unchecked.

    Is this happening with all documents, or just one particular document?

    all documents. I have not made any changes to my system and the last Windows update occured on 8/16/05, so almost a week before I noticed the Thumbnails always displaying.
