Set the default Microsoft Word template back to a blank document.

Problem
When you open Microsoft Word it is loading a previously created document as the new blank template.

Solution

  1. Firstly close down Microsoft Word.
  2. Use Windows Explorer to navigate to the following location: C:\Users\%UserName%\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Templates
  3. Delete the file named Normal.dot
normalDOT
Now re-open Microsoft Word and the Normal.dot file will have been replaced with default blank page
