Word for Mac 16.25 cannot remember window size

I just updated to word for Mac 16.25. Word no longer remembers the sizing of the document, and always opens to a very small window. Never happened before the update.

Original Title: Word for Mac 16.25


Hi All,


We have received several reports about the same issue recently. For others to easily identify the information here, I’m summarizing the issue as follows:


Issue description:

After updating to version 16.25 (190512), Word for Mac can no loner remember the window size closed last time. It always opens at a fixed size.



Word for Mac version 16.25 (190512) on all three latest version of Mac OS.



We can reproduce the same behavior on our side. And we are reporting the issue to our related team for further investigation. Once there is any update, we will post back as soon as possible. As a workaround, you can open the Word for Mac application first and open the file from the recent list or from the File menu.
