Default format for new cells

When I first installed mathematica, each cell by default would display
the new 2-D notation like subscripts or superscripts if I used the
basic input palette.  This is no longer the case.  I have to manually
convert each cell to StandardForm to get it to display the 2-D format. 
I have searched through the option inspector to try and find the magic
command, but it uses different names than the drop down menu uses. 
Could someone tell me how to put the default cell format back to its
original in which each cell was already in standardform?

I renew my plea for full and complete Front End documentation either by
Wolfram or a third party.  I want a manual that will tell me what all
the options in the Options Inspector do and how to format headers with
every single possible option mentioned and non-trivial examples.  I
want to know what all those Value Display Objects are.  I also want all
commands documented, such as ValueBox and &MenuItem (which is found in
the .tr files in the System directory).  If anyone has written such a
thing please tell me so I can buy it.
