Word 2010 – Add Template

without comments

You can add a Word Template without a problem until you get to Word 2010 because they’re hidden under the Developer ribbon, which is disabled by default. It’s funny something so widely used would be placed on a ribbon that is disabled by default.

It didn’t come up in the first few Google search pages. I figured that I’d blog it because it took me more than a couple minutes.

You can enable the ribbon with the following steps:

  1. Click the File menu choice as shown in the image.


  1. Click the Options menu item as shown in the image.


  1. Click the Customize Ribbon menu item from the left column.


  1. After clicking the Customize Ribbon menu item, the dialog on the right changes as shown below.


  1. Click the Developer checkbox to enable the Developer Ribbon that lets you assign a macro template.


  1. AFter enabling the Developer Ribbon, it now appears whenever you open or launch Word 2010.
