Office 2010 Templates

Posted on 2011-10-06

Hello All,

When you open Word (Word 2010) and go to File -> New - there is a section called Templates.
My client currently have all their templates in a templates folder set by group policy to point to "workgroup" templates.
For them to open their templates they have to then click on "My Templates" to open the company templates.

They would like for me to modify or add all their templates to the section in templates, instead of in "My Templates". Is this possible?

    No - the templates are hosted on-line by Microsoft.
