Using my Office 2010 Word and Excel templates with Office 2013 on Windows 9.1

I have numerous custom templates I've used for years with Word and Excel. I obtained a new Windows 9.1 computer and installed Office 2013 Professional on it. I copied my templates to the correct folder under Users\myusrnamename\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Templates

However, when I choose to create a new document, I get all the wonderful (NOT) templates Microsoft shipped with Office and the ability to search for more such stuff online. But there is no option to create the new document from my templates.

What, if anything is the solution?

Thanks,
Doug

The default position has changed (of course).

It is now: C:\Users\username\Documents\Custom Office Templates
