Office Template Tutorial

This tutorial explains how to retrieve office template files for use after you have downloaded them from this website. If you still need to download your department's office templates from this website, visit this page.

Step 1: If you clicked "Download Now" on a specific template you need such as a Fax Cover Sheet or General Document, you will have a zip file in your downloads folder on your computer. You will need to unzip this file by right–clicking on it and selecting "Extract all" if you are on a Windows PC, or right–clicking and then selecting "Open with"/"Archive Utility" if you are on a Mac. This will open the specific document template you've downloaded, which will be placed in the same folder as the zip file.

Note: If you selected the "Download All Templates" option, you'll need to unzip the first file in your downloads folder, which will then open a new workable folder with more zip files inside, which you will also need to unzip.

Step 2: Open the file you will be using by double–clicking on it. You will see that your department's logo is at the top of the template. Anything below that is editable—you can change it to whatever you would like. On most documents, there will be a title section like the one below:


You can place the title of the document into this section. Again, anything below that is editable and you can change to fit your needs.
