Hi pramod1,

You'll need to modify your Normal.dotm template to make the changes stick. Steps for doing so can be found in the following Microsoft help document:


1. On the File tab, click Open.

2. Go to C:\Users\user name\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Templates.

3. Open the Normal template (Normal.dotm).

4. Make any changes that you want to the fonts, margins, spacing, and other settings. You can use the same commands and features that you use to change a document — but remember that any changes that you make to Normal.dotm will be applied to documents that you create in the future.

5. When you have finished, click the File tab, and then click Save.

Note: If Normal.dotm is renamed, damaged, or moved, Word automatically creates a new version (which uses the original default settings) the next time that you start Word. The new version will not include any of the customizations that you made to the version that you renamed or moved.

Hope that's helpful.

Regards, Andrew

I agree with the above. If you only have a few changes, you can just open Word, change the Normal Style and save once.

I did this to remove the extra line feed at then end of a paragraph.
