    global templates (Word 2000 SR-1)

    My computer is loading some global templates, and I do not know what they are or where they are coming from. They are not listed in the ApplicationDataWordStartup folder. The names of the templates are aware97.dot, PDFwriter97.dot and dgnword.dot. I think the dgnword may be from Dragon NaturallySpeaking, but I can't be sure. Any ideas where these are coming from, and why they are loading, when they are not in the startup folder?
    Thanks.

    When you select one of the items in the list in Tools/Templates and add-ins, the full path of the file is displayed below the list. However, as another poster found out recently, this is not always reliable.

    You might have a look at this site in www.mvps.org. It provides a lot of information about the location of global templates - in Word 2000 the situation is more complicated than in Word 97!

    Hi Tex:
    If you installed Microsoft Word over Word 97, and you had templates and add-ins located in the previous Startup folder, Word 2000 still loads and uses those templates and add-ins (C:Program FilesMicrosoft OfficeOfficeSTARTUP). This assumes a default setup & that it was installed into drive letter "C:"

    In general, you can click the taskbar & press F3 to bring up the Find box & search for files. You can then double click the found folder to see all the add-ins.

    Hope this helps.

    I did the upgrade, and found these templates under Crogram filesmicrosoft officestartup. I moved them to another folder, and now they are not loading when I launch MS Word 2000. Thanks for the information.
