How to create a custom templates in Office 2013?

Problem:


How to create a custom templates in Office 2013?

Solution:
The custom templates you created using an earlier version of Office are still there, but Office 2013 doesn’t show them by default. Instead when you open an Office 2013 program, you’ll see the Office.com templates. If you want to see your custom templates on the Personal tab when you start an Office program.

Browse to the following location to save you templates.

1.Click Start > Run, and then type %appdata%\Microsoft\Templates\ in the Open box.

2.Copy the address in the File Explorer address bar.

3.Click File > Options > Save, and then paste the address into the Default personal templates location box.

4. Save the template file as .dotm(Word Macro Enabled Template).


Make sure you do this for each Office program. After you’ve updated your template location, any new templates will be saved to this default location.

If this will not work try the below fixit.

Value Name: ForceAccountSelection
Value type: REG_DWORD: 1 for force, 0 to disable.

Outlook 2013 / 2010 does not honor default account while send emails.

Problem:


Outlook 2013 / 2010 does not honor default account while send emails.

Solution:

When you have multiple accounts and an IMAP account in Outlook 2010/2013 and you change the default sending account to the IMAP account, you may experience the following issues:
When you click a mailto link from a browser or from Outlook, the default sending account is the Exchange Server account instead of the IMAP account.
When you create a new email message, the Exchange Server account is selected instead of the IMAP account.

Out of the box, Outlook 2010 SP1 and Outlook 2013 use the default account for Send to commands but not for new messages created while viewing a pst file (when a POP account is assigned to the pst file), unless you set a registry value to always force the use of the default account.

To force all new messages to use the default email account, regardless of which pst file you are viewing, browse to the following registry subkey.
