Retired KB Content Disclaimer
This article was written about products for which Microsoft no longer offers support. Therefore, this article is offered "as is" and will no longer be updated.
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".
  1. Quit Word.
  2. Click the Windows Start button, point to Settings, and click Control Panel.
  3. Double-click Add/Remove Programs.
  4. Click the Install/Uninstall tab.
  5. In the list of installed software, select either Microsoft Word or Microsoft Office.
  6. Click Add/Remove.
  7. In the Setup box, click Add/Remove.
  8. If you are using Microsoft Office, select Microsoft Word and click the Change Option button. If you are using Microsoft Word Setup, skip to step 9.
  9. Select Wizards, Templates, and Letters.
  10. Click Change Options.
  11. Select those items you want to install. To install the Pleading Wizard, select More Wizards.
  12. Click OK.
  13. Click Continue.
  14. When prompted by Setup, insert the appropriate disk or compact disc.
The new component is installed.

Windows NT 3.5x

  1. Quit Word.
  2. From Program Manager, click Run on the File menu.
