Organizing templates

One of the first tasks to manage templates is to organize them, perhaps dividing them by department, business division, project, or template type.

  1. Open your templates folder.
  2. Create a new folder with a name that describes the category of template.
  3. Move templates into the folder

The next time you use the Templates dialog box in Word, there will be a new tab, with the name you gave the folder. In other words, tabs for custom templates are simply subfolders of your templates folder.

A tab will not appear if a templates folder is empty.
