I need to change the default location for Templates in Outlook. I know this must be done in Word. I understand the procedure to be
File -> Options -> Advanced -> General -> File Locations
HOWEVER, the File Locations button is "greyed out" thereby making those locations uneditable.
Any suggestions as to why the File Locations button is "greyed out" and what can I do about it.

Do you have a document open when you go into the options/advanced/....? if not, you must have a document open for the options to be available.

The normal reason for options being grayed out is that they have been defined by group policy
