Is this what you are looking for?
Inserting and deleting text,or are you trying to delete the whole document?
Some time age I had the same question,LINK.Since this is a old thread it is slow loading,so I'm pasting the results if you have problems accessing it.
This is from Grif,"..and remember, that this isn't really your resume.... It's only a shortcut to it...First, you need to make sure you know exactly where your real resume file is..probably in "My Documents", so you can access it later..Find it and remember the location.
Next, after opening Word, click on "Tools", choose "Options", then the "General" tab, then UNCHECK the box next to "Recently Used Files List", then click on OK. When you now look at the "File" menu, ALL of the menu items will be gone...Now go back in and CHECK the box next to "Recently Used File List". Now close Microsoft Word and navigate to your "resume" file and double click on it. You should now be able to see the "correct" location of your resume in the "File" menu and it will be the only one listed there....until you open more Word documents. After opening more Word documents, they also will be placed in the "Recently Used Files" section of the "File"
I'm running Win 2000pro. Office 2000. Saved a document to wordpad in text format and also saved it in word format. I want to get rid of the text one.
