I am in the process of upgrading from Win XP & Office 2007 to Win 10 & Office 2016. I have everything installed and it seems to be running. I copied all of My Documents over using a thumb drive. Now I need to copy several folders of user templates.


On Win XP, they are in:

C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Application Data\Microsoft\Templates\...

Can I just copy them over like I did with My Documents? And if so, where to?



Running Win 10 & Office 365.

%appdata%\Microsoft\Templates. The %appdata% usually translates to C:\Users\<your user name>\AppData\Roaming. The AppData folder is usually hidden, so you'll need to click on the View tab in File Explorer and check the "Hidden Items" box.
