Word 2007: Apply a template

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:

  1. Click the large Microsoft Office button in the top left.
  2. Click Word Options.
  3. Click Popular.
  4. Select the Show Developer tab in the Ribbon check box.
  5. Click OK.

Once you’ve got it set up:

  1. Click the Developer tab.
  2. 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.
  3. Apply your template, then click OK.
