"search for online templates" greyed out

Hi All,

I am running Word from Office 2013. When I go to new I would like to search for online templates however the option is grayed out and I cant work out why. I am definitely online as I am typing you this message and I have all available Windows updates. Funny thing is that I have it also installed on my wife's machine and it works fine. Both running Windows 8.

Yes mine is a legit copy.

Any advice?

Thanks,

Mike.

Open office product, go to...

 

File>Options>Trust Center>Trust Center Settings>Privacy Options.  Make sure "Allow Office to connect to the Internet" is checked.

 

That should take care of your issue.
