A new type of template screen will be introduced in Excel 2013. The first time when the user opens the new Excel, he/she will be faced with a new flash screen that displays a series of new templates. The user can use these types of templates as they need.

You can also choose a blank template style which is an empty document. It offers templates from both a local store and the Office.com cloud template library. All the templates are stored on the internet and downlodes from there when the user requests them. You can also search for new templates online.

The user can search for a new template by entering a keyword related to the templates and also searched by categories. This is a very helpful feature to create various types of documents depending on our needs. Some of the default templates that the user will see when they open it are Blank Workbook, Billing Statement, Expense Report etc.
