Default Change default Excel start file

I am using Excel 2010 in Windows 7. I want to have Excel start with a
new file that has the row height, column width, text alignment, etc.
set to my preferences. I also want to have any new sheets have those
same preferences. I have tried several things and so far I have been
able to get the new sheets look the way I want, but the original
workbook still looks the way it has since day one.

What am I missing?

Never mind, I figured it out! I saved both of my modified files,
Book.xlts and Sheet.xlts to:

C:\Users\Gordon\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Excel\XL START

Now all is good.
