I have created New document Template and currently open it by starting WORD and then File New and click the template to open it. I want to set WORD so when I start WORD it opens the new template automaically without all the clicks. I have kind of sussed that it should be made the Normal.doc but dont know how to change normal.doc. Can anyone help with this please.
I think you might find it safer to rename your existing Normal.dot file to (say) Normal.old BEFORE renaming your new template as Normal.dot
By that means you will be able to reverse the procedure if you want to produce documents based on your existing Normal.dot template. If Word cannot find a Normal.dot template when it is opened it will create a new one automatically, with default settings which MAY not be the same as your present normal template which you MAY have 'tweaked' for some reason in the past.
