Microsoft Word – cursor placed at top of page.

When creating a new document and in Print Layout, Word sometimes places the cursor right at the top of the page – not catering for the top margin.

I’m not sure why – can only presume this is a bug.

The workaround, to make it display the cursor where it should be (below the margin) seems to be to view the Header then hide the header:

  1. Select menu item ‘View’ – ‘Header and Footer’ (this shows the header)
  2. Do the same thing to hide it (Select menu item ‘View’ – ‘Header and Footer’).

That’s it – the cursor should now be placed where it should be – so you can start typing text and see it in the correct position on the page.
