    Normal.dot is a hidden file that is not part of Windows--any version. It is a MS Office Word template file. You must have MS Word installed. Read more about it here: Article on normal.dot

    Judging by your post subject, you do have office installed. I have the 32 bit version of 7 so I'm not sure how much different the path will be, I doin't think it should be any different in this case. It should be located in:

    C:\Users\*YourUserName*\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\ Templates

    Thank you Mary. I know all that already. I can find it on XP but I cannot find it on Win 7. I just wanted to know what folder it is stored in on Win 7.
    I want to change the page margins for all new word docs, and if I can find and edit normal.dot I can do that. I don't know another way to permanently change the page margins.
