According to the site below and a few others, the template folder is at
BET: Microsoft Word Templates - Normal.dot
C:\Documents and Settings\"user name"\Application Data\Microsoft\Templates\
I'm using Windows 7 64 bit and there is no Document and Settings Folder in Windows 7.
I can't find a Templates Folder in App Data either.
Please help, thanks.
I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.
I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.
You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Having upgraded my desktop PC to Office 2010, I need to import three seperate letter template files for use in Word. These were lost during the upgrade but are on my laptop, which still runs Office 2003, as .dot type files and I also have them copied to a memory stick. However, I am at a loss as to how and where to save them into the new programme on my desktop PC. If it makes a difference, I should add that I do not use Libraries and have disabled them.
Can anyone advise please?
Problem solved - with a bit of advice from a friend! Unsurprisingly, it's very simple.
- Open the document in Word
- Click "Save As"
- Scroll to top of folder list and, under "Microsoft Word", click "Templates"
- Name the template and select "Word Template" in the "Save As Type" list
- Save it
I still don't know where they are saved to but I can now call them up and use them.
I just picked up an Acer Iconia Tab W500 series tablet pc
It has Microsoft Office Starter 2010 and I'd like to create a Word template without upsetting the default template or any others
Can you help me figure out how to do that?

We currently switched from WordPerfect to Word 2010. In WordPerfect we had a macro for the letterhead where you typed in your information (or picked from a drop down list in some places) and then it would bring up your document for you to continue typing in. I need to set up the same thing in Word and thought of using forms etc. but I want to keep it as close to the WordPerfect way as possible.
Does anyone have any ideas on how I can acheive this?

I am relatively new to VBA so please bare with me.
The company I work for has multiple business divisions and each business has multiple branch locations.
The letter template needs to allow the user to select their business division in a combobox in a userform which will populate that field in a table in the footer.
I then need to populate the address and contact details, also contained in a table in the footer. I would like this information to be pulled from an excel spreadsheet which will allow for updates by administrators who may have very basic level knowledge of Word. The other option, I believe, is to use docvariables, but I am unsure of how they work. I can only assume that the information is manually entered into the userform and that the document remembers the information?
Any assistance is greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.
Can you post a sample letter showing how the completed letter should appear?
Ok, so I created a custom template and saved it as such (.dotx). And when I want to use it, I go File>New>My Templates>APA Format.dotx. All of that is fine, and the template works fine.
My question: can I have my custom template show up NEXT to the My Templates folder, Blank Document template, etc. Right now that top row of Available Templates has: Blank document, Blog post, Recent templates, Sample templates, My templates, and New from existing. I want to simply add my custom template to this row of options. That would allow me to select New> APA Format.dotx.
If you need a better explanation, please ask.
I appreciate any and all help!

I am trying to make Avery 5168 Labels but get this message:
"The margins, label size, and number across or down values produce a page that is larger than the label page size."
I'm not entering my own custom label sizes here - I'm selecting an Avery label from Word's own list. After selecting the Avery product I click on Details. There I can go down to page size and select Letter or Letter Landscape. Both are 8.5 x 11", but for some reason Landscape gets me the error message.
I have already set my document to Landcape in page layout thinking that might be the problem but that didn't fix the issue.
Any ideas? Thanks, H.T.

I am running Word 2010 on a PC, running Windows 7.
I cannot figure out how to make changes to the "normal" template and have those changes apply to old word files.
In old versions of Windows and Office, I used to be able to make changes to the normal template by going in through the Appdata, and the changes that I made would be reflected in both new documents created, and old documents when selecting "normal" as a text style. However, now I cannot even make changes to the normal template by going through file locations and saving changes.
I can only make changes to the normal quick style icon (by right clicking on "modify" and then applying all changes to "new documents based on this template.") However, this does not alter the "normal" quick style icon in files saved prior to making the changes to the normal template. How can I get my updated normal template to apply to all documents, not just new ones?
OR- maybe there is another solution...
The reason I need the normal template to apply to all documents is that in the new word, I cannot copy and paste and maintain source formatting (even when pasting special and selecting "keep source formatting".) The paste always takes on the destination style, and if the destination style has a "normal" template that is different from the source "normal" style, it automatically selects the destination style and WILL NOT keep source formatting.

I recently installed the Microsoft Office 2010 Beta, but this morning its intro screen stays stuck at "Starting Microsoft Office Click-to-Run." Googling it resulted in only two threads, neither of them having the answer.
I'm back to using Office 2007, by simply setting my Word and Excel documents to open by Office 2007 by default, but now my Word and Excel icons have become much less pretty, such as my Word icons becoming a very plain "DOCX" icon instead of the normal "blue W" icon. I checked, and the file types are still regular Word documents. Is there a way to get the pretty icons back?
Regarding changing the icon:
Go to either My Computer or Windows Explorer.
Click Tools, Folder Options, File Types tab.
Scroll down to the DOCX file type (file types are in alphabetical order), click on it one time to highlight it.
Click the Advanced button.
The "Edit File Type" screen appears.
There is a Change Icon button in the top right area.
Click the Change Icon button.
You should have other icon choices to pick from.
Side note: If you don't like any of those icons, you can always hit the Browse button,
and browse to where other icons are, (you can assign any icon to any file type that you want, it is a matter of personal preference).
Icons are found in .exe files (executables), some (not all) .dll (dynamic link library) files, and .ico files.
Hi, I have a .dot template containing vba that i would like to use for new documents. However, as soon as I rename or relocate this template, any document that I have previously created from it loses all inherited vba. I was under the impression all elements of a template (such as vba) were meant to be passed on (embedded into) to the new document at creation, instead of just the template passing its own path/folder reference so that the new document can be directed back to the template to read the vba when required.
As the documents created from this template will be distributed to various computers which may not even have a local copy of the template, this is a big issue. I am using Word 2003.
Thanks for your help.
...will the document update automatically?
Do you mean if you created a new document from a template. Your very brief question is not very clear.
If you created a new document from a stored template then altering the template will not alter the document.
A template is a stored base design that you have stored for future use, so that it can be used to create a new document with the same format. Once that new document has been created & saved it is no longer connected to the template.
I am a novice at this and I have searched and searched over the last week trying to figure out a fix to this.

How to Add the Date and Time to a Word 2010 Document - For Dummies
Good evening to all at W10 forum.
I have office 2010 on my windows 10 desktop,ZooStorm one recently bought.
Now the problem is with word when I go and type a document then go to file to save as a annoying box comes on screen asking me to click yes or what ever else in on the box.
There is nothing out of the ordinary in the document just plain times roman 14 font.
Can someone Please tell me why does this box come on screen while saving a word document to my document folder.
I have Office 2010 installed. I often print an online news article to the xps format. Sometimes I have the need to convert this format to Word.
The question is how do I make the conversion without using a free software. It is preferable to use a software that would retain the original format of the article.
Your mission, should you decide to accept it, is to help me find such a software.
Try to convert XPS to a DOC* format is a complicated OCR task, same as trying to take a picture of an old newspaper and then trying to scan and make it editable in Word.
You need something like ABBYY FineReader 11 Professional Edition
It keeps original formatting as much as possible.
I have been trying to collect all of my back-up necessary files into my "My Documents" folder, so I don't have to maintain a list or archive of all the different locations of them. I can just backup or copy the Documents folder regularly and as needed.
I would like to know where the user dictionary is for Office 2010 - Word & Outlook, the one that is created when you click "Add to Dictionary" in Spell Check? Then I want to know if I can direct Office 2010 to put it in the My Documents folder?
Thanks to you for any help you can give me. Best regards,
Go to the Backstage (the tab to the left of the home tab, normally marked file), and select options then proofing - under custom dictionaries you will see your user dictionaries listed
You can copy and paste these to wherever you wish and then point this dialogue to the new location. this will still work as before but with the dictionaries in a safe location
I finally upgraded from MS Office 2002 to Office 2010, and all of my Word documents were automatically converted to wps files. In addition, when I download Word documents not created in Word 2010, they default to wps files. I can work around the problem manually to pull up older Word files in new Word, but it's incredibly annoying that any workaround is necessary. (Incidentally, when I try using the "open as" box with downloaded files, Word 2010 does not appear as one of the options.) I've been using Word for many years and have no need or desire to switch to MS Works. Please advise!

This is an update to Microsoft Office Word 2007 (including Office 2007 suites) and Microsoft Office Word 2003 (including the Office 2003 suites). This update was issued as a result of a United States court ruling on December 22, 2009. Generally, customers who purchase or license Word 2007 or Word 2003 from Microsoft after January 10, 2010 for use in the United States and its territories will need to use updated software that does not include a particular custom XML tagging implementation. The following section provides more information about the custom XML tagging capability that is removed by this update.
You must install this update if you are instructed by Microsoft in a separate communication.
Description of the January 2010 update for Office Word
does this only apply to the US (and it's territories) or is this dependent on where you sourced your copies of Office from.
My Office 2007 was a "Use at Home" version shipped from the USA - I've also got a technet copy of 2007 and 2010 -- I assume these are US editions as well.
Background: I have been using windows since 3.11 when I was in second grade and we got rid of our DOS box. I consider myself a proficient user to highly proficient user, having built 4 of my own machines. I have installed Office 2010 Professional and the program works.
Setup: Lenovo ideapad y500 purchased January 2013 with Windows 8
Problem: Windows will not allow me to set Word 2010 as my default program for opening .docx or other valid formats. I can open the documents from within the program, just not by default.
1) Right-click file > choose default program > Word 2010 not available > browse for and specify location > set program to default. Result = System Message "This app can't run on your pc."
2) Consulted Microsoft support site to search for solution. Same result.
3) Contacted Microsoft support hotline to request help with issue. Was informed that, because I didn't fully understand the intricacies of this new operating system within 90 days, and I can't make two Microsoft products work properly together, I will need to pay $150 for support. They used more tact, but that's the gist. I can visit any Microsoft store to get free support, the nearest being 150 miles away.
Desired Resolution: One of you fine people have seen this before and know how to set that default application. All of you who read this are also annoyed with Microsoft's awful customer service. Microsoft replaces my OS with Windows 7, which I loved. I pro... Read more

Citing the need to support the ability of chemists to communicate in their discipline-specific language as essential to scientific research, Microsoft has made available for download a free add-in for the 2010 and 2007 flavors of Office Word. Dubbed informally Chem4Word, the add-in was developed by Microsoft Research and the Unilever Centre for Molecular Science Informatics at the University of Cambridge, and was released at the American Chemical Society?s Spring 2010 National Meeting & Exposition. Alex Wade, director for Scholarly Communication, Microsoft Research, explained that the Word extension was capable of supporting specific symbols across technologies and file formats, and streamlining authoring and semantic annotation.

I am running Win XP Professional, And Microsoft office 2007 2007 Enterprise... Works Great, But with word, We are getting a config screen and then a dialogue that says this:
"An error occurred and this feature is no longer functioning properly. Please run Setup and select 'Repair...' to restore this application"
Now i assumed that this was due to the fact that this was a student account. We then upgraded the account to Domain Admin, and we are getting the same error.
This is in an enterprise, and if we were to repair the Word File, We would have to do it on all 18 computers on said domain.

is it possible to remove the parts of it that are remaining on my computer & are conflicting with the newer version of office? i have searched the net & there doesnt seem to be any way to do this most stuff guides you back to add/remove programmes.
please help thanks
Scroll down and download the free version of this and install it.
Run the program and select word from the list and uninstall.
Select advanced for the uninstall.
It will run the uninstaller first,so you will probably get the same error.
Continue and it will search for files related to the program to delete.
Continue and it will look for registry entries to delete.
Double check those to make sure they belong to word and
delete the ones that do.
Then finish and restart the computer.
This is a question about Word 2010. I have created a problem for myself by accidentally DELETING the Word Shortcut from my desktop and from Start / All Programs / Microsoft Office. I had also created a desktop shortcut from these entries under Start. I did this before inadvertently deleting the Work icon from the "folder" under "Start" AND from the mirrored Folder on the desktop which contains an icon for EVERY OTHER Office application except Word.
Where can I go on my system, or elsewhere to find and "object" upon which I can "right-click" to create a Word icon that I can hopefully restore to the above 2 folders and at least one other location?
The executable file for Word is located at the following location:
C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office14
Once under this you can find the executable file named "WINWORD" and this will launch Microsoft Word. To have this as a desktop link you can simply right click it > send to > desktop and then rename the shortcut when it is on your desktop.
Hopefully this is what you were asking for.
Important note: The path is dependent on if you have multiple hard drives and this file will, of course, be under the hard drive you have office 2010 installed on.
since I installed SP1 for Office 2010 I have problems with opening some (not all!) older Word documents created with Word 2003 (*.doc). I get a message that Word can't read the document and it is probably corrupt.

Has anyone an idea?

Today I installed numerous Office 2010 updates. After they installed, there is a NEW Start Menu entry of Microsoft Office with three programs.
Both sets of entries start the same application (as I had customized) but the quesiton is: why did the update create these new Start Menu entries? Will it "hurt" anything to just delete them?

On Microsoft Word 2010, when you go to either the Open or Save as dialog boxes, you see a folder tree called "Microsoft Word", under which in my computer has Templates. In Microsoft Excel, it has a similar affect, showing "Microsoft Excel". I want to remove this tree from view, and ONLY want to see "Computer" (or "This PC" on Windows 8.1). Is this possible, and if so, how?
Can this be done locally and/or through group policy?
Just started using a new workstation with Office 2010 installed by OEM. Everything worked fine for a few days, and then every time i attempt to open a Word file or Excel file i get the MS Office dialog box that states "please wait while windows configures Microsoft Office 2010". The dialog box stays visible for 30-45 seconds and then the program opens and works fine.
Ran a repair, four times, didn't fix it.
All of my research leads me to a solution of uninstalling and re-installing. I'm not buying that if everything worked fine for several days, that a bad install will make the program stop functioning properly.
I also noticed, while visiting help within outlook, that the product was still a trial version and not currently activated. I have entered the activation code numerous times with no luck.
Any suggestions? This is becoming extremely inefficient.
Right click the Word or Excel icon and select Run as administrator.
This should allow the proper configuration to be written to the system and you should not have to do it again.

I am running Windows 7 (Home Premium 64b) with Office 2010 (Home & Bus) on our new desktop PC. Just finished installing both without problem. Have now turned to adding email accounts to Outlook. I added 4 POP3 accounts, using the wizard. The wizard's test mails - and my own independently sent test mails - have confirmed that send/receive work fine in all 4. One of the 4 has been selected as my default account.
All 4 accounts show up in the navigation pane on the far left of the screen. The default account appears at top, with a black arrowhead to the left of its name. Under it appear the standard list of system-offered subfolders: Inbox, Drafts, Sent Items, Deleted Items, Junk Mail, Calendar, Contacts etc. etc.
The other three accounts are listed below this array. Each of them has a white arrowhead to the left of its name. None of these accounts has any system-offered subfolders (Inbox, Sent Items, Deleted Items etc) listed under it.
How do I get Inbox, Sent Items, Deleted Items and the other system-offered subfolders to appear under these non-default accounts in the Navigation Pane? For example, I know (from viewing the same accounts independently on my laptop) that these non-default accounts are receiving mail; however, I cannot view any of this mail because the Inboxes of these accounts are not accessible from the Navigation Pane.

I'm running Windows 10 64-bit and noticed one day when opening my start menu to open up word that in the programs list (now called "all apps" for some reason) the launcher for Microsoft Office 2013 Word wasn't in the folder labeled "Microsoft Office" but rather, it was under the "W" section as its own program. I went into the file location, and all the applications are in a folder there, but for some reason in the start menu, it's not in the Microsoft Folder. This bugs me, and I can't find any way to edit the start menu's folders/programs etc. in Windows 10. Before I continue, I must say that I'm a little biased toward the older versions of Windows, and am rather dissatisfied with the way Microsoft is heading. That said, does anyone know how to fix this? I can't just drag it into a folder, and I can't find any "manage start menu" buttons or options anywhere! Please help me!

I have had this issue on many computers but right now I am setting up an old Dell Latitude E5510 for an employee and I have reformatted, installed all drivers, and programs needed. I installed Office 2007, because this employee won't really be using the computer much.
I start up Windows Updates today and it has me downloading 3 updates for Windows 2010. This computer had Office 2010 on it before it was reformatted. Is it still sensing Office 2010 buried somewhere in the files and that's why it's asking me to install updates for it? Does Office 2007 use updates that are also made for 2010(and are only labled 2010)? Anyone have any ideas? I don't believe it's hurting anything, but I am curious!
I get those type of updates for my Office 2003. There are some later updates that can be applicable. For example, I installed a converter that lets me open later MSWord formats (2003 is doc) and now I get updates for later Office versions.Read other 2 answers
It seems that there may be a problem in Office 2010. I just installed it to the standard MS default/recommended settings .........all looked good...used Word great..until I use Excel and each time I try to use excel it sets off an 'Office Configuration' screen which I can not stop..it take a few minutes and then loads OK. I tried to launch it from the installed prgrams icon but there is no files on 'start in' etc..I tied to create a shortcut to the desktop from the excel.exe file and get the same reconfigure issue..it seem that somehow I don't have either permissions or I have a corrupt install..all Office suite works eventually Anyone know how to fix it..please?
Have you ever had a previous version of Office on this copy of win7?
Do you have any component of a previous office suite installed still
I have seen this in the past with Viso that was due to remnents of an earlier trial remaining on disk and in the registry.
I also found that if I cancelled the configuration screen the Viso would load without problems without the need to wait for completion.
There are some rather involved solution stems on Microsoft website - cannot find them at the present but will try to look for them.
The problem was that I could never get the removal steps to actually cure the issue and I put up with the error until my next re-install of Win7, which was not to long in the case of that system
Hello Techies: I'm looking for an easier way to have a table checklist (it was copied and pasted to email from Excel) on outlook that's emailed to me daily to be a saved template on Outlook as opposed to the person sending it to me to go back into the previous email and write over previous data?
This is a checklist a person does everyday and updates a grid like table which I had copied into an outlook email. The subject is always the same so I have a folder rule whereby these daily emails are stored. The person goes into the previous day's email and copies the grid/template to a new email with the same subject tittle and enters the new data. I wonder if I can save a template of that grid so whenever the person clicks new email the template/grid automaticallly appears with the same subject tittle, thus avoiding the extra work of copying from an old email?
I created the following outlook template and would like to auto update <yesterday’s date> everytime I open my template. Any idea?
Subject: daily report for <current date>
The first attachment is for <yesterday's date>
The second attachment is also for <yesterday's date>
The third attachment is for <today's date>
I've experienced this problem twice in the past week. Here is my current problem:
New Windows 8 computer
Moved Office 2010 install from old computer to new computer
Copied all documents to new computer by installing the old drive in the new computer (NTFS to NTFS)
When trying to open any DOC, DOCX, XLS, XLSX, PPT, or PPTX files that are stored in the Documents folder I get permission errors. Word will open an RTF file just fine. If I try to use any Office programs to save a file to the Documents folder, I also get permission errors. I can move the file to the Desktop and work with it just fine. I can then move it back to the Documents folder.
Here are the errors when trying to open files:
Word - Word cannot open the document: user does not have access privileges
Excel - 'C:\Users\xxxxxx\Documents\Book1.xlsx' could not be found
Powerpoint - The path or file name for C:\Users\xxxxxx\Documents\Presentation1.pptx is invalid.
When I try to use one of these programs to save to the Documents folder, I get the following error:
You don't have permission to save in this location.
I tried copying the files two different ways to eliminate any lingering NTFS permissions. I used a linux box to copy from the old drive to EXT4, then to a linux formatted FAT drive. I plugged this FAT drive into the Windows machine and moved the files over but got the same errors. Next, I copied the files from the old drive to a FAT32 drive using another Windows box. Then I tool the FA... Read more

On one computer, when I open Excel 2010 templates it doesn't open it in Excel. It previews in my explorer window as shown in this screenshot but doesnt open but on another computer it will open as normal.
Turn off your preview pane, which is that square box on the upper right. That should disable the preview and open the document in Excel.
