Word 2010 - Unable to disable background repagination

Ask a question


Issue


I'm running Office 2010 on a legacy PC and want to disable all memory consuming resources to make an optimal use of the Office suite. My problem is that I can't disable the "Background pagination option" under Word.
  • The option is grayed out.

Solution


First you must change the Document View:
  • Under Word, select the View Tab> Document View
  • Select "Draft"
  • Then go to File > Options > Advanced > General
  • Uncheck "Enable Background Pagination".

Use Word 2003 and 2010 on the same PC
