Please ignore. My problem was that I hadn't yet figured out the way to access the Normal template.

FYI for the curious: to find out how to do this type in Normal in the Word question box that comes up after clicking on the littler question mark in the upper right hand corner.

To eliminate unwanted keyboard commands, AFTER going into the Normal.dotm template template Click on the upper left button, then on WORD options, then on customize, then on customize keyboard. In the right box that will appear scroll down to all commands. Then go down the list that appears in the right box, highlighting each one. If an unwanted command appears below the left box, click on it and then on rmeove." There are a zillion commands and the process takes forever, thought. Or you can click on "reset all" but would lose some commands you might wish to keep.

After you've made changes, save, cancel back to your document (Normal.dpot)then go to the upper left button again, click SAVE and then just cancel out of Normal.m using the cancel "x" at the right top of the screen..
