Where do I find templates?
Templates are files designed to be interesting, compelling, and professional-looking documents. All the formatting is complete; you just add what you want to them. Examples are calendars, cards, resumes, invitations, and newsletters. Your Office programs come with several templates already installed. Here’s how to find them.
In an Office program, click File > New.
Click the template you want to use, and then click Create. A new file opens based on the template you selected.
Note To select a template you’ve created or downloaded to your computer, click My Templates or Personal, and then choose your template. To see more information about custom templates in Office 2013 programs, see Where are my custom templates?
