If you don't accept this suggestion, at least correct two things that are wrong
(1) https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/919599/how-to-change-the-default-view-to-draft-view-in-word should be changed or deleted as it is apparently incorrect and
(2) the option at 'File --> Options --> Advanced --> General' allowing to check the box that reads “Allow opening document in Draft view” should be eliminated as doing so does nothing.
These suggestions are supported by the discussion at https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/msoffice/forum/msoffice_word-mso_win10-mso_365hp/unable-to-get-ms-word-documents-to-open-in-draft/9c98bd56-eb09-43fa-8a5a-4ae969eed26cKalman Brauner supported this idea ·
