What is a .DOT file?

DOT files are templates created by Microsoft Word. They may store various types of document templates, such as reports, resumes, and newsletters. The DOT file format was introduced in the 1990s and is still used today. However, the format was replaced by the DOTX format as the default Word template format when Microsoft released Word 2007.

Microsoft Word comes with pre-designed DOT templates, but Word users can also create their own DOT files. Although the DOT template format is not as common as it once was, you may still receive DOT files attached to emails from co-workers, family members, or friends looking to share a document design with you. Or you may come across old DOT templates saved on your computer. Whatever the case may be, you can use File Viewer Plus to view, modify, and convert your DOT files.
