Hi Experts

I would like to set a custom default template for Excel 365, or modify the existing one.

I have created the template, and applied our corporate theme to it for colors and fonts.

I then saved it in C:\Users\ArchieD\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Excel\XLSTART with the name of Book.xltx. 

I re-started Excel but this template is not picked up whether I press ESC or click 'Blank workbook'. (I also tried saving it in the 'Custom Office Templates' location.)

I am obviously doing something wrong but can you tell me what it is, please?

Many thanks in advance.
