Working with Templates

When you start Word, a blank document opens based on a default template. The default template defines the page margins, default font, and other settings. Instead of using the default template, you can create your own template. A custom template can store text, styles, formatting, macros, and page information for use in other documents. Start with a predefined Word template, or use one you created. Quickly try a new look by attaching a different template to your current document. The attached template's styles replace the styles in your document.

Save a Document as a Template

Open a new or existing document.

Add any text, graphics, and formatting you want to appear in all documents based on this template. Adjust margin settings and page size, and create new styles as necessary.

Click the File menu, and then click Save As.

Click the Save As Type list arrow, and then click Document Template.

Make sure the Templates folder (usually located in the Microsoft Office folder in the Programs folder) or one of its subfolders appears in the Save In box.

Type a name for the new template.

Click Save.

You can open the template and make and save other changes just as you would in any other document.
