    General Templates location problem (Word 2002 SR2)

    I wonder if someone can help me with a frustration. I have tried the lounge, google and checked my "Special Edition Using Office XP" but cannot find any help anywhere. I have just upgraded from Word 97 to 2002. In 97 I have templates in a server location (where my Group Templates were pointing to) and templates in my C:Program filesmicrosoft officetemplates (where my user templates were pointing to) and everything was hunky dory. When I decided that I didn't want any of the Microsoft inbuilt templates I simply moved those templates out of my User Templates location elsewhere and I no longer saw them when I did a "File, New ... ". However, now that I'm on 2002 I simply cannot get rid of the 9 folders that are taking up the tabs in my templates dialog. I discovered these in a 1033 folder and moved it away from my User Templates location but it has made no difference to Word. Will I have to uninstall these templates rather than simply move the folder? Just thought someone may know. The reason I ask is that we have lots of folders in our Workgroup Templates location and I obviously would rather see these folders instead of the 9 that I do not want.

    Any help would be appreciated thanks.

    Laura, you do have to uninstall the templates. You can do this through the Control Panel, Add & Remove Programs. Locate Word (or Office) and choose Change. This will lead you to the setup dialog, and you will choose add or remove features. Expand "Microsoft Word for Windows, and disable all those items listed under "Wizards & Templates" that you don't want showing as tabs in the "File, New" dialog box.

    Glad to have been of assistance. This was an easy one. Anything more complex & it would have been over my head. <img src=/S/duck.gif border=0 alt=duck width=23 height=23>
