DOT is a file extension used by all versions of Microsoft Word, it's exactly a Word Document Template program. The main role of a DOT file is to include identifications of templates belonging to Microsoft Word. Such templates allow users to come up with a sample report or form layout. This layout can be then used to create many other documents with similar formats. Examples of documents that can be created using these templates are faxes, invoices, envelopes and business memos. Users can set fonts, styles, look, and colors then create custom new Word documents that are predefined. A file extension DOT is also rarely associated with Bert's Dinosaurs File, Corel Lines-Definition and Graphiz DOT language File.

Incorrect associations are the cause of many file extension errors. Scan your system to prevent, identify and repair DOT file extension association errors.
