    Ctrl+N (2000)

    My file-new command does not work any more. File-new-default works fine; but I cannot get either the WOPR macro or Microsoft's default window to open my templates. Any suggestions?

    Is it the File/New or the shortcut key? Either way,
    1. press Ctrl+Alt+num pad plus sign.
    a. Then press File/New & see what command it's associated with.
    Repeat #1 & then press Ctrl+N to see what command the shortcut key is associated with. An add-in may have changed the key assignments or menu command assignments.

    It is both the File/New and the Ctrl+N shortcut. The key assignment and command are correct. They just do nothing.

    Start Word from the command line (Start/Run & type:
    winword.exe /a
    then press <enter>. This will start Word without normal.dot & without any add-ins. If this cures it, then the problem is either in normal.dot or an add-in. With Word closed, find & rename normal.dot to normal.old, then restart Word. If that cures it, your problem was the normal template & you should let Word rebuild a new one. If you have autotext & other customizations, you can copy them using the Organizer (but be careful, you may copy back in what you were trying to get rid of).

    If renaming normal.dot doesn't help, you'll have to go to the startup folder (there are 2: one for Word & one for Office) & remove ALL templates & libraries. Then restart Word. If this works, you can add back in the add-ins etc. to the startup folders, one at a time & test in between. This should locate the cause.

    If it's specifically the WOPR add-in causing the problem, it's best to post the question over there.
    Hope this helps,

    Thank you. Replacing the Normal.dot worked.
