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.
