Word 2010 Template Saving issues RRS feed

  • Question

  • When I save my new templates, they do not appear in the "My Templates" folder.  What is the path for this folder?  I can find the template in Recently created, but never in My Templates. I don't see a way to set the template path in the options section either.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    File > Options > Advanced

    Go to the bottom of the dialog; the button for file locations is there.

    The location of user templates is the same template where you would find the normal template.

    The path of the folder is (on my Windows 7 machine):-

    C:\Users\user_name\Documents

    The above is also known as the Libraries / Documents folder.
