How to Create Your Own Template in Microsoft Word

You’ve probably seen the array of templates that come with Microsoft Word, but what if you want to create your own. It’s really easy to do.

There are advantages to using templates especially if you have forms or documents you need to fill in regularly.

One advantage is they are easy to find. As they are always in the templates section when you go to New document or New template.

They always open as a new document so less chance of overwriting a similar document. For example, I’ve seen it where people have an invoice and use the same one for creating the next one. They would type in the new details and then choose save as. However, if you click on save or autosave kicks in, it overwrites the one you opened.

Here’s a video I made to show you how to do this on Windows and Mac.
