Default .dotm available to all users?

Word 2010

I have users who must stay on Windows XP for the time being related to another program they use.

I now have a .dotm file that I make available by putting in the users(wtuser) folder...

xp users



'C:\Documents and Settings\' + wtuser + '\Application Data\Microsoft\Word\Startup'

windows 7 or newer....

'C:\Users\' + wtuser + '\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Word\Startup'

Is there a place I can put the .dotm file and it would be available to all Word users and not just the users I drop the .dotm file into?

Default

%appdata%\Microsoft\Word\Startup

You might be able to reassign the folder location for your users so that they all point to a network location but that is really no easier than putting a local copy into their folder.

Default

Put it in a folder and make that folder the workgroup templates folder of all the users that you want to access it.

File>Options>Advanced>File Locations>Workgroupt Templates.
