Default Global Settings


I changed my "normal format" when I open a blank document in WORD 2007. I must have changed Global Settings. How do I change settings to go back to my previous document format when I open a blank document?

Hi lefttoday,

That really depends on what you've changed. If you simply want to get back to Word 2007's original 'Normal.dotx' template, find where Word keeps it (look in Word Options > Advanced > File Locations > User templates), then close Word and delete the 'Normal.dotx' file. Word will create a new one with the original setup next time you start it.

Thank you so much. However, I must have done something (that's what I get for not paying attention) else. I cannot find the file with the "normal.dotx" I may have deleted it yesterday. Any other suggestions! Thanks a bunch!!

If there is no 'Normal' file (with an extension of dot, dotx or dotm) in the location suggested by Word Options > Advanced > File Locations > User Templates, that suggests you're running with the default setup and there is no 'previous setup' to get back to.

Note: If there was nothing in the entry for Word Options > Advanced > File Locations > User Templates, the templates will be in Word's default template location, which you can navigate to by inputting:
%appdata%\Microsoft\Templates
into Windows Explorer's address bar.
