Well, the properties dialog for normal.dotm indicates a change was made at the 
time I attempted to save it, so I may have succeeded despite the lack of JAWS 
confirmation. Unfortunately, I don't think my changes took effect. The page 
numbering dialog acts differently in the template. I'll try again. 
To read page numbers in a Word file, I press alt-v, then h, then arrow down. 
Does anyone have an alternative method because I don't find this one reliable. 
I'm using Word 2010.
Thanks again, David and Mike.

Mike, you anticipated the query I just posted. Our messages crossed. I've gone 
through David's steps again and this time pressed the applications key. After 
setting page numbers the way I want, I pressed F12 for "Save as." Unlike 
before, the filename is what I want, normal.dotm. However, I'm not getting the 
"All" option. When I press control-s for a simple save, nothing is verbalized.

Hi Adrian,

To find the Normal.dotm, find it as David suggested, but to edit the 
Normal.dotm don't just open it, use the context menu.  With the, Normal.dotm, 
highlighted press the application key or, Shift + F10, to open the context 
menu, arrow down to, Open, & press enter.  Now you can edit the Normal.dotm & 
save the changes to either just the document you're working with, or All 
Documents.
Take care.  Mike.  Go Dodgers!

Hi. Most settings that I want to be my default in Word 2010 can be set in 
specific dialogs. For example, I can set a default font through the font 
dialog. However, it doesn't seem possible with page numbering. So I've been 
trying to locate and open the default.dotm file. One online instruction says to 
open Office 2010, then click on templates, but I can't even locate Office
2010 as a separate item. When I click on Word 2010 in my programs list, it 
opens a new document rather than giving me the template option.

Can someone get me past this seemingly basic hurdle? Thanks.
