How can I change the template for the page that is created when a new HTML page is created in Visual Web Developer Express 2010?

I found a bunch of files in c:/program files (x 86)/ Micorosft Visual Studio 10.0/Web/WebNewFileItems including HTMLPage.htm which is the default name of the new file, but when I try to edit this file it doesn't save and says the file is in use, even if I switch off VWD. I tried creating a new file in another folder and overwriting the template file but that didn't work either!

Any ideas?

The correct path you should go to for these changes to take affect is:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 10.0\Common7\IDE\VWDExpress\NewFileItems

Doesn't work. I've edited the file there, and the changes I made are not applied. The original file at that location doesn't look the same as the new page that is created. VS2012 is the same btw... – danwellman May 18 '13 at 23:50
