Well that's a weird problem I've been having for a couple of days. First, let me introduce where it all started.
So a couple of days ago I messed a bit with Word settings and found out that the defaults can be set by deleting the Normal.dot/Normal.dotm file under %appdata%/Microsoft/Templates. I did that.
However, then I noticed that after exiting Word I get this message (every single time):
If I click Save
, nothing happens, Word window with no blank page and only toolbars are visible (then if I try exiting again, same message appears). If I click Don't Save
, Word shuts down successfully, but after launching it again and exiting, same thing happens. And it doesn't seem that Word recreates the default Normal template in the Templates
folder - there's no such file visible, even with hidden and protected files set to visible.
What is more, the dialog for Save/Save As... doesn't work. Clicking these buttons simply throws me back to the document.
Tried re-installing, repairing... Same.
