Microsoft Office 2010 default template does not work
The following behavior with Microsoft Office 2010 may be observed.
On opening a new file, a page with small margins is displayed, and font by default is specified to be
Calibri (body), pt size 11.
What happened: Office is no longer using the default template on opening up a new window.
It is hard to pinpoint the issue. I did apply all windows updates relevant to Office, including a large Office service pack.
Upgrading Office while it was still open might have been the issue.
The only solution that I know of is to
1) Uninstall Office.
2) Delete AppData locations relevant to office and office templates (Roaming\Microsoft\Templates, \Office, same for Local\)
3) Create restore point.
4) Create a new document. See if it comes up with Times New Roman, 12 pt.
If it does not, try to replace a file in
with this one: Download Normal.dotm
If none of this works, then there is a workaround that will require some work every time you create a new document.
1) Create a new template, either from the file above, or from deleting all text from a file you previously saved (to delete the text but keep the correct formatting).
2) Every time you create a new document, you will have to go to File>New>My Templates. Then choose a template.
