    Increase # of Templates Visible (2003)

    I remember reading in the newsletter how to increase the number of templates that are visible when you click File, New. I can't remember how to do it on my new machine. Can someone remind me? Thanks.

    Thanks Andrew, but not really. I even checked my old computer (running Office 2003) and when I click File, New there are nine templates listed in the task pane. It was a tip I saw in Office Watch I believe, but I haven't been able to find it through search. Thanks again for trying.

    This works for me on Word 2003.
    1. Create a registry key (DWORD type) at MyComputerHKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareMicrosoftOffice 11.0CommonGeneral called RecentTemplatesList
    2. Give it a value of 9 (or something bigger than 4)
    3. Restart Word and create new docs from other templates.

    Is it possible you missed the last folder in the registry path? The instructions provided by Microsoft for Word 2002 can easily be misread because you export a higher level path before adding this key in the General subfolder.
