9. Where’s My Stuff?

Speaking of templates, and other important files that take forever to (re-)create like Email signature blocks—do you happen to know where they’re located...er, in this version?

Like the macros for which they often serve as containers, templates are valuable pieces of property that need to be protected, backed up, and reused.

This is hard to do if you can’t find them.

Microsoft has hidden document templates in a variety of places.Your templates that are saved automatically are in C:\Documents and Settings\Professor\Application Data\Microsoft\Templates. And as you may realize, "Professor" in the folder listing above refers to my user name. For you, they’ll be located accordingly.

What about your all-important Outlook *.PST file? All your Outlook data is stored in a file type called *.PST—and it can be a huge file conveniently located in C:\Documents and Settings\Professor\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook.
