Default Word 2007 & Later Key Data File Locations

On a PC, Word usually stores various key files in the locations indicated below.

If you paste the filepaths into Windows Explorer's Address Bar, it should find them regardless of what your username is. Windows is smart enough to understand what you mean. You ordinarily won't find these folders because they're hidden.

AutoCorrect Entries [formatted]
Formatted entries are stored in the Normal template

AutoCorrect Entries [unformatted]
Code:
C:\Users\%Username%\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Office\*.acl
Bibliography Sources
Code:
C:\Users\%Username%\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Bibliography\Sources.xml
Building Blocks
Look in:
Code:
C:\Users\%Username%\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Document Building Blocks\1033\
under that you may find another numbered folder (eg 14), containing files named 'Building Blocks.dotx' and/or 'Built-In Building Blocks.dotx'
