J'ai windows 10 et office 2016. Après une mise à jour, lorsque j'ouvre word en demandant une page vierge, la page qui apparaît est quadrillée. Comment faire pour avoir une page word vide à l'ouverture ?

Merci et Cordialement.

When you say quadrillée ("squared"), do you mean that the page has height equal to width? If that's the case, you have "white space" turned off -- the header and footer areas are hidden. Read http://wordfaqs.ssbarnhill.com/WhiteSpace.htm. If you mean that there are lines around every paragraph, then turn off the option to "Show text boundaries" in File > Options > Advanced.

Merci pour votre aide. Je voudrais vous préciser que lorsque je dis que la page word qui s'ouvre est quadrillée, c'est qu'elle apparaît un peu comme une feuille excel. Je vous remercie encore vivement pour l'aide que vous pourriez m'apporter.
Cordialement.

@Michel_2801 

Thank you for the clarification. I think that what you see are "gridlines" (quadrillage). There is a check box on the View tab to control them.
