Permission denying when creating a template to be use as default

Hello all,

I'm doing this method for creating a custom template to be used as default workbook:
First I create a new workbook and modify it based on my own likes. Then I save it (Save as) as Excel Template in below path and then press the Save button. But got this message. I'm admin of the PC but I don't know how to get rid of this message.

C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office14\XLSTART

If you browse to that folder are you able to write to it, try creating a text file in there or even save that template to your desktop and try to copy/paste the template into that directory.

@ Kurdman. It seems that you are trying to save the template to Microsoft Office, Office 14, XLSTART on your C drive. You should save all your Excel Spreadsheets & Workbooks to a folder in your Documents Library.
I have a folder in my Documents Library for my normal workbooks & a separate folder for my Excel Templates so I can find them easily when needed.
Set up a folder in your Documents Library with a name that suits you for your Templates & save the template to that folder.
