Close all Word docs, then locate Normal.dotx in the User Templates folder, right-click it and select Open to open it.  The title bar should say Normal.dotx.  Edit it as needed, close and save it.

You can open the template as if it were a document,  edit it as necesssary and then save it.
.
Some items, such as formatting styles and language (for spell checking) can be modified without opening the template, just by changing a document and setting it a default or 'for all new documents' from this template.

I can't find the normal.dotx

I have found the normal.dotm (for macros?) ...

Where is?

Thanks

Yes. If a 2007/2010 document or a template has an 'm' at the end of the extension instead of an 'x', then it can contain macros.

The Normal template is held in the User templates folder (see Options>Advanced>File Locations)

Alternatively, you can edit this directly in Word itself by right clicking on the 'Normal' button in the 'Styles' section on the toolbar.  The click 'Modify' and you can then format as you see fit.  You then have the option to apply to all new documents.

Hope this helps.
