    Temporary Files (2000)

    I am running Office 2000 on Windows 98Se. I have dozens of .tmp files in C:WINDOWSApplication DataMicrosoftOfficeShortcut Bar. What are these and is it safe to delete them all?

    That's a rather odd place for TMP files, yes. Any file with that extension should be safe to delete especially from Office directories.

    I should have added, when in doubt copy the files to another location, maybe create a "TEMP" directory, and delete after a week or two.

    I get these all the time if I start up OSB. When you make changes to the OSB, new temp files are created, but the old ones aren't deleted. You can delete ALL of them (with the OSB closed). The next time you start the OSB, you'll see messages like "preparing the Office toolbar", etc. & new ones will be created. I would just delete them all & then just keep the latest versions for each toolbar (there are 2 for each toolbar).
    Cheers,
