    Frank seems to have a solution for our problem but my outlook folders do not show up in :C or in the forms box. I'm using Windows 10 and Outlook 2016. The only thing that seems to work is to reboot the outlook profile completely which deletes a lot of my preset features. help!

    Hello,

    My issue is a little different--I think!. The forms (templates?) that are showing up in the "Choose Form" dialogue, they seem to be contained in various email sub-folders (but not all) that I have. When I go through those sub-folders, I don't see any form/template message there. Is there any way to clean these up? When I use the Form Manager, these forms/templates do not show up.

    Just reporting that I sorted the earlier issue with templates. I misunderstood Frank's instructions & on a second read was able to delete erroneous templates, so thank you to Frank.

    I too have the same issue as Debarah M,who asked, What if the forms are not in "Personal Forms" but in another folder - "User Templates in File System"? "Personal Forms" is the only option that shows up when I click on "Set" in the Forms Manager Dialog box and I can't change it to anything else? Re; Frank's answer below, I can't see any "C" drive in the dialogue box. Please advise, this is important to me. P.S. I am currently running Window Vista business.

      Go to your C drive, on top right corner enter name of the template in the search. You'll likely see a few items come up with your template name but only one will say "outlook item template," highlight, right click and delete.

    Thanks! I used your instructions to clean up my personal forms library -- it will be nice not to have to scroll past all the obsolete forms to find the few I actually use!
