No templates when opening a new presentation in PowerPoint

If no personal templates are showing up when you are opening a new presentation, it means that PowerPoint is not looking pointing to the folder where your personal templates are gathered.

By default, this folder is usually set as: Documents\Custom Office Templates\

You can change the path location at several places:
  • PowerPoint > Option > Save > Default personal templates location
  • HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Office\15.0\PowerPoint\Options\PersonalTemplates
  • HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\15.0\PowerPoint\Options\PersonalTemplates
  • HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Office\15.0\Common\General\SharedTemplates
  • HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\15.0\Common\General\SharedTemplates
