Where are my SSMS templates?

I'll be moving to Windows 7 at home shortly, and I understand that the templates folder has changed. Here's what my coworker Sopheap found:
C:\Users\\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Microsoft SQL Server\100\Tools\Shell\Templates\Sql

Function and Procedure Parameters

My task was to find all table-valued functions that had no parameters. I used the DMV sys.parameters.
SELECT o.name AS FunctionName
FROM sys.objects                AS o
LEFT OUTER JOIN sys.parameters  AS 
o.[object_id] p.[object_id]
WHERE o.[type] 'IF'
AND p.[object_id] IS NULL
ORDER BY o.name
This could be easily switched to stored procedures.
SELECT s.name AS ProcedureName
FROM sys.procedures             AS s
LEFT OUTER JOIN sys.parameters  AS 
s.[object_id] p.[object_id]
WHERE p.[object_id] IS NULL
ORDER BY s.name
To find all functions that have a particular parameter, you could do this:
o.name          AS FunctionName,
p.parameter_id  AS ParameterOrder
FROM sys.objects    AS o
JOIN sys.parameters AS p
ON o.[object_id] p.[object_id]
WHERE o.[type] 'IF'
AND p.name '@PersonID'
ORDER BY o.name
