If the Templates folder does not exist, you will need to create it first.
Browse to the Template folder in your Home and save it in there.

Now that a template is created, you can start creating new documents based on the template content created above.
Open the folder where you want to place the new document.
Right-click anywhere in the empty space in the folder, then choose New Document. The names of available templates will be listed in the sub-menu.
Next, choose the template you created from the list.
Double-click the file to open it and start editing. You can rename the file when you’re done.
