Default Word 2016 - Delete all Tab stops

I have a 450 page document and want to delete *all* Tab stops.

What is a straightforward way for me to do that?

Thanks.

If your document is properly edited using styles, you change the tab stops in the underlying style.

Sure it does, but it also removes any a user might have added, which it seems to me the OP actually wanted.
