    Don't Want To See Temp Files (Ver: Word 97)

    Running WIN98SE and Word97.

    My Open dialog box in Word shows temporary files created by AutoSave or otherwise.

    I do not want to see them.

    How can I hide these files from view, both in Word and in Explorer?

    These files have the hidden attribute, and you can prevent Windows from displaying hidden files, but this can have unhappy consequences elsewhere. (Example: <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.wopr.com/cgi-bin/w3t/showthreaded.pl?Cat=&Board=wrd&Number=108600>Post #108600</A>) Otherwise, it's hard to think of a way to exclude them.
