Default Microsoft Word question

I'm not sure what version I've got 03? It is running on XP though, if that matters any?

When I open Word the screen opens full page. The page "was" blank ready for me to type last week, but now when I open Word the page has a black mark that looks like this on it > " __ ". It doesn't flash and is one line below where I type. The black line always stays left side justified....how do I get rid of that line?

Sounds like it might be in your options/preferences. Have you look there? Maybe in your text formating of the document itself.

I'm a Word guru. I think the mark you're talking about is the end of document mark. I assume it moves down the page as you type.

A couple things to check:
1) Turn marks off. In other words, click the the little backwards "P" sign on your toolbar. Changing this shows spaces, returns, paragraph marks and other formatting items that are normally hidden.

2) Change your View. If you are in Draft mode, you'll see that mark. If you change to Print Layout view, you shouldn't see that mark.

Let me know if that works for ya, buddy!
