Template ending in xlsm and xltm. What's the difference? and Where is it?

I have a macro that I created that I saved as a template.  When I look for it in the Program Explorer, I can't find it unless I use the search tool.  It tells me it is saved in the C:|Documents and Settings\Jane Doe\Application Data\Microsoft\Templates folder.  Then I can click on it and it will run.  Why can't I locate it in my Program Explorer?  Also, what's the difference between the xslm and xltm copies?  Which is the executable?

Since I am asking 2 questions, I am increasing the Points value and am willing to split it.

These are both macro-enabled workbooks. The difference is that the "xltm" file is a template, so opening it will create a *new* workbook based on that file. If you open the "xlsm" it will simply open the file.
