    Delete Microsoft Quick Style Sets

    Hello all, I've just converted from Office 2007 to Office 365 (Office 2013) and I am having some problems customising Word 2013.
    I have lots of quick style sets ( A4, A5, books, single pages etc.).
    I have succeeded in adding my quick style sets to the Design ribbon and I want to delete all the default Microsoft quick style sets.
    I can't find where the Microsoft quick style sets are stored. Please help.
    Regards,
    Judith

    Hi

    I have office 2010 and they are in
    C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office14\1033\QuickStyles

    Just a guess try C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office15\1033\QuickStyles.

    Cheers

    You can do a Windows search for QuickStyles. I found a folder with a bunch of likely docs in C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office 15\root\office15\1033\quickstyles

    Thanks Geoff and Andrew, I saw Geoff's reply first and found the quick styles exactly where Andrew has said. I removed all but 2 of them. Previous experience indicates it is unwise to delete all of Microsoft defaults in case they ALL come back.
    I has previously tried a Windows search but I had too many results (old versions and backup copies of my style sets and I could not make sense of what I found).
    So thank you both for the solution.
    Regards,
    Judith
