Bill,
 
I wonder what would happen if I change the, dotm, to a, dotx?  I'm going to try it just to see what happens!  LOL 
 
 
Stay safe and take care.  Mike.

Hi, Mike. No, you can't transfer the normal template from Word 2010 to Office 2016 Pro. This is because they have a different format, and a different file extension. The templates in Word 2010 have a .dotm extension, whereas the templates in Office 2016 Pro have a .dotx extension.

Hi All,

 

I'm going to upgrade my Office 2010 Standard suite to Office 2016 Pro.  I would like to keep my Word 2010 settings since I'm too damn lazy to configure Word again, so can I transfer  my Word 2010 Normal.dotm to Office 2016 ?  All help is greatly appreciated.  Thanks mooy moocho.


Stay safe and take care.  Mike.
