Thread: Where is my Normal.dotm file?

  1. #1

    Default Where is my Normal.dotm file?

    I have several hours worth of Microsoft Word customizations stored *somewhere* on my backup disk in the normal.dotm file. I cannot find it to save my life.

    I am running Windows 7, Microsoft Office 10 and Parallels 7.

    I did a reinstall of of all three this morning.... everything is running as it should, I would just prefer to avoid recreating all my lost customizations.

    Any thoughts would be welcome.

    Also: Microsoft word tells me my current normal.dotm is here c:\users\[username]\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Templates

    I keep thinking there should be a file structure like this somewhere on the parallels side ... if I could find that I'd probably be in the clear.

    For any other rank newbies like me -- the windows file structure (the c: prompt and so forth) is stored within your .pvm file ...if you do "show package contents" on your .dvm file, it'll show a list of files & apps -- one of which is a disk mounter ... mine is Windows 7-0.hdd ... if you mount click on it, it becomes another volume in your Finder that you can navigate through..
