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.

Ctrl-A, then Page Layout|Paragraph>Indents and Spacing>Tabs>Clear All.

Doesn't that leave you with the default tab stops?

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