Reset MS Office Word to defaults

by Robi 15. July 2009 12:20
I opened a new Word document in MS Word 2007 and started typing. I noticed that all defaults for paragraphs, fonts and generally formatting are gone. So in order to reset all formatting to defaults you have to delete or rename a certain file. In Vista, that file is in: C:\Users\[yourname]\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Templates in that folder delete or rename file normal.dotm If you want to reset all settings to factory defaults you have to delete a registry key for MS Word. For each version of MS Word the registry key is slightly different and is as follows: Word 2007 HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\12.0\Word Word 2003 HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\11.0\Word Word 2002 HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\10.0\Word Word 2000 HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\9.0\Word  you can read more at: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/822005 Voila!
