Archived from groups: microsoft>public>outlook>program_forms (more info?)

Hello all. I am trying to figure out how to delete a "user template in file
system". Since templates are somewhat related to forms, I thought this may
be the best place to get this question answered.

I can create a template in Outlook, I can use them, but I cannot figure out
how to delete the ones that I no longer need.

They are stored at:
C:\Users\AZ\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Templates\*.oft
I've checked several manuals and help sites, but cannot find directions to
delete. Any help would be most appreciated.

Thanks!

"user template in file system" means it's a file, an .oft file in
particular, found on your computer's hard drive. Use either My Computer or
Windows Explorer to navigate to that folder on your hard drive and delete it
as you would any other file, by selecting it and pressing the delete key.

I am having the same problem as AZ. Your answer makes sense, but it isn't
working on my computer. When I go to open the user template in Outlook, it
says the template is located at: C:\Documents and Settings\FT
Info\Application Data\Microsoft\Templates\*.oft. However, when I actually
search for this location, it does not appear to exist. There is no
Application Data folder under FT Info. Why would this have occured and how
can I delete a template?

Check your Explorer settings to make sure that it's set to show hidden files
and folders. If you need help with that, tell us your operating system.
