A safer way to use Jeffery's idea is to set your user-templates directory to
point somewhere else (use Tools->Options->File Locations:User Templates).
When you have done this, close Word, restart Word, create a new blank
document, write something in it (your name perhaps) save and close the
document, close Word (save changes to the Global templete). Voila! Word has
created a brand new in your current user-templates directory.
This has all the Microsoft defaults. Now you can use the
Organizer to copy macros etc from your old to the new
