You can't generally just double-click this file, because doing so opens a
new document based on this template rather than opening the template itself.
So, once you know where the file is, open it in Word. (You may have to set
the options in the File Open dialog box to show "all files" rather than just
"Word documents".) Make any changes you want to make, then save the file.

One addition:before modifying the Normal template, make a backup copy of it. You'll never know when you'll want the original.

Better yet, rather than modifying the Normal template, create and apply a new one.Just be sure to send the new template to those who need to read the document.
