Setup Default Template for New Workbooks in Excel


 S  M  L  XL  FS  |  Slo  Reg  Fast  2x  |  Bookmark Join Now

In this Microsoft Excel tutorial, I will teach you how to set up a default template so that when you create a new workbook, it will automatically be set to whatever settings you prefer, including font, font size, column widths, row heights, background colors, and so on. I'll show you how to set up a Book.XLTX file. This way, you don't have to keep making changes every time you create a new spreadsheet.

Ellen from Gulf Shores, Alabama (a Platinum Member) asks: Microsoft just updated Office and they set the default font to this new Aptos, which I don't like. How can I get back Calibri without having to change it for every new document I create? This is annoying. Help.

Notes

  • Create a Book.XLTX file (or XLTM with macros)
  • Put in: C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\root\Office16\XLSTART\
  • Your folder may be different depending on Excel version
  • Find at: File - Options - Trust Center - Trusted Locations - Excel Startup
  • Remember to Disable Start Screen (File - Options - General - at bottom)
