Windows 7: How do I create a custom folder type template?

How do I create a custom folder type template?

How Do I create a custom folder template so I can use it and apply it to other folders. The only option it gives are General Items, Documents, Pictures, Music, & Videos. Five is far too little for any computer. I need to create templates for Fonts, Photoshop, 3d, and others. I don't want to use only the five given to me because it will ruin everything already set to those templates. All I can find is how to change the settings for the five already listed but nothing about how to create new custom templates. Many results are misleading, including ones on this forum, with titles that specify custom folder templates but only asks how to adjust certain folders or customize the current default 5. There seems to be no information, let alone a single post about this problem because Google, DuckDuckGo, and every search engine doesn't show anything to this specific problem. They all only show results on how to adjust the default ones. I am surprised that since Windows 7 came to be in 2009, nobody has inquired about this. How would I accomplish this task?
