In earlier versions of word it was easy to apply a template via Tools > Options > Templates and Add-Ins. Not quite so simple in Word 2007, at least initially. However, once you’ve got yourself set up, it’s easy. Here’s how to set it up:
- Click the large Microsoft Office button in the top left.
- Click Word Options.
- Click Popular.
- Select the Show Developer tab in the Ribbon check box.
- Click OK.
Once you’ve got it set up:
- Click the Developer tab.
- Click the Document Template button in the Templates group. This opens the Templates and Add-ins window, which works the same as in earlier versions of Word.
- Apply your template, then click OK.
