I seem to be having good moving moments all over the place today. This one fixes the problem of not being able to see documents on the computer as easily as I once was able to do.
On a computer using Windows 7 and Microsoft Word 2010. To change the normal.dotm template find where it is located.
c:\users\John Doe\app data\roaming\microsoft\templates
Format a blank document in Word to your specifications. On 2/4/12 I chose: Arial, Font size 14, No spacing and the zoom factor is 120%. Save it as a macro enabled template to the desktop and call it something like Normalthenewone
Resize the window where your normal.dotm is located and drag the new file Normalthenewone.dotm to that window. Make sure Word is closed and delete Normal.dotm. Make sure you’ve got the right Normal.dotm by right clicking and looking at the properties. If you’ve got earlier versions of Word on your computer there will be a Normal.dot for them.
Rename Normalthenewone.dotm to Normal.dotm
