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.

What happens when you try to delete - do you get an error message? Maybe

Outlook needs to be closed when you try the deletion?

Go to that directory and and delete it like any other file.

Where do you get stuck?

I too have this problem. I have created user templates and saved them to my desktop. However when I try to delete them I get the following image:

I have been trying for months to find a solution to this. Hope some one can help.

Do you get the same error if you hold Shift as you hit delete?

Can you drag them to the Recycle bin? to another folder?

Open Windows Explorer - browse to the Desktop folder and try to delete it from WinExplorer.

Cannot move them anywhere!

Open Windows Explorer - browse to the Desktop folder and try to delete it from WinExplorer.

Still no joy!

I've noticed that Windows Explorer takes an age to open the desktop folder
 
do you have a lot of stuff on the desktop? Can you move or delete anything?

right click on the template and choose properties - what permissions does your windows account have?

You'll be able to delete it (or move it) if you log in using another windows account and browse to this desktop folder. The other account will need permission to browse your files (under C:\Users\youracct\ in windows 7, My Documents and Settings in WinXp).

FWIW, i don't like saving stuff to the desktop - because it can slow it down and the desktop has tighter security.
 
I had the same problem and found a fairly easy way to delete a template. I simply opened up another template, went to File, Save As, and went to User Templates and deleted the unwanted template from there. I didn't actually save anything, I just went through a mock process to get the User Templates to open up.
