SharePoint 2013 and above all templates libraries in the site are shown in a
dropdown, where they can be selected.
This procedure only has to be performed once. Even if you open another Office application next time, Templates Manager Client will connect to the site and templates library you have specified.
Click on the Select Template button in the Templates Manager ribbon group to select a template for a new document, presentation or workbook. Now Templates Manager Client connects to the templates library you have defined and shows all templates for the kind of Office application you have open.

The first time you click on the Select Template button, you have to once more enter your login details to the SharePoint site. Check the ?Keep me signed in??? box if you want to avoid logging in each time.
Search or browse among the templates just as you normally do when you use Templates Manager in SharePoint.
When you click on a template, a copy will be downloaded to your PC, and you are asked to specify where it should be saved. Select location and click OK, and then you can start working with the template!
