    New Office Document tabs (Office 2000)

    How do you remove tabs from the New Office Document window? Removing the templates in each tab is pretty straightforward -- right click + delete. But how do you get rid of unwanted tabs?

    The tabs (in office 97) are nothing more the subdirs in your template directory's.

    They are only shown if there relevant template files are present in these directory's.
    Remove all templates (or directory) and you won't see the tabs any more.

    You're right about the tabs in Office 97 being nothing more than subdirs. However, that's not the case with Office 2000. So how can I remove the New Office Document's tabs in Office 2000?

    In Office 2000 you will find that there is a folder for each "Tab" that you see in 'File New'.
    They are listed in the Microsoft Office folder, then Templates, and then under the "1033" sub folder.

    Now running HP Pavilion a6528p, with Win7 64 Bit OS.

    Re: New Office Document tabs (Office 2000)

    Actually, the tabs I'm trying to get rid of don't show up in the 1033 subdir or anywhere else that I can find. Two that I want to nuke and can't find are "Legal Pleadings" and "Direct Mail Manager." I've tried finding them using various filefinders but with no success. Ideas?
