Word Tips:

  1. In Word you can’t merge to email unless you first make Outlook the default email client. You do that in Outlook > Preferences > General where you click the Make Default button.
  2. How do locate the normal.dotm file on my computer?  You can find normal.dotm in a new location. ~/Library/Application Support/Microsoft/Office. If your file is not there, open Word, then go to Preferences>File Locations and read the entry in “User Templates”.
  3. Audio Notes- How long can you record? The length of the recording is limited only by how much disk space you have. Do not push a Word document above two gigabytes, which should give you about a day’s recording, depending on what you are recording and at what quality.
  4. How do you change the defaults? See the Word Help topic “Change the default settings for new documents”
