Hi, this is Adam Watstein for About.com.
Information About Creating Templates in Word
Let's say I'm finishing up developing a poster. It's a play that's going to be running in different towns and cities, and I don't want to recreate the poster every time it plays somewhere new.
Instructions for Creating a Microsoft Word Template
So what I will do is create a template, so that way each time I have to add some new information to it, the poster will be readily available for me and I can add whatever I need to it.
Steps for Creating the Word Template
So let's create a template of this document. Up in File, go down to Save As. Select Save As, and then you're going to give the file a name. It's already called A New Play, I like it, go over to Save File As Type, and go on down to Word Template. Let's be sure to save it in our templates folder. By selecting templates, you'll see, after you save it, that the document will now be in the templates folder for you to access any time you need it. Again, if I were to go to File now, and to New, in my templates, I'll then find A New Play, the template I created. I can add what I need, and save it as a new document, so I can always keep my template. And that's how we create templates in Word 2010.
