Word: Placement of Insertion Mark Not Remembered After Opening PSS ID Number: Q40746 Article last modified on 03-04-1993 PSS database name: M_WorD
When you close a document, Word records where your current insertion point (or selection) is. However, it does not automatically return to that place in the document when it is reopened.
To return to the previous insertion point or selection, reopen the document, and press “0” on the numeric keypad.
