Office challenge: What's the quickest way to find Word's templates?

Susan Harkins issues another Microsoft Office Challenge to TechRepublic members. What's the quickest way to find Word's templates?

A user can't find her template; she wants to add a few new styles she's consistently using.  "Okay, let's see what's in your templates folder by…" you quickly say - can you fill in the rest? It's just three quick clicks in Word 2010. Now, that doesn't mean the template is where you think it should be, but the three clicks I have in mind will take you to the place where I'd start my search.

After you help her find the template, you give her a piece of unsolicited advice about altering templates. What might that advice be?

Feel free to answer either or both questions in this week's challenge.
