> Is there a way to get Word to open to a default view (say text width)?

The following KB article from Microsoft's website lists the command-line arguments (including some that are not documented in Word's online Help):;EN-US;Q210565&;

None of the command line args address changing the text width, but the "/m[macroname]" arg allows you to launch a macro on opening the application, so it would be trivial to write a macro that changes the default view.
