When you click New on the File menu and select any tab (such as Other Documents), the expected templates and wizards (such as the Pleading Wizard) do not appear.


When you installed Word, you performed a Typical, Custom, or Compact installation.

NOTE: If you chose Custom, you may have cleared the "Wizards, Templates, and Letters" option. Also note that not all templates and wizards are installed during the default Custom setup, and certain templates and wizards are not installed with a Typical installation. Templates and wizards are not installed at all in a Compact installation.


To install the missing wizards, templates, or letters, use the following steps:

NOTE: If you are using Windows NT 3.5x, follow steps 1-3 in the following section titled "Windows NT 3.5x".

  6. Click Add/Remove.
