The steps are as below:
Removing the template information without removing all other “personal” data:

Open Word. Click “File” and then “Options” on the bottom of the left sidebar.

The Word Options dialog provides you with a variety of settings to help you manage Word.

Click “Add-Ins” on the left sidebar. A list of Microsoft Office Add-ins appears under Add-Ins. Select “Templates” in the box next to Manage at the bottom and then click the “Go%u2026” button.

The Templates and Add-Ins dialog opens with your current template listed in the field under Document Template.

Open Word. Click “File” and then “Options” on the bottom of the left sidebar. The Word Options dialog provides you with a variety of settings to help you manage Word.

Click “Add-Ins” on the left sidebar. A list of Microsoft Office Add-ins appears under Add-Ins.

Select “Templates” in the box next to Manage at the bottom and then click the “Go%u2026” button. The Templates and Add-Ins dialog opens with your current template listed in the field under Document Template.

Which IBM hardware can run which OS ?

pSeries (POWER-based Platform, currently P8): AIX (=IBMs UNIX), Linux (SuSe, Ubuntu), iOS (formerly known as AS/400)
zSeries (mainframes): z/OS (replaced MVS, OS/390 and VM), z/Linux
xSeries (=Intel-compatible): Linux and everything else running on Intel-systems.
pSeries systems can use either the IBM hypervisor which runs iOS-, AIX- and Linux-LPARs or (only Power8) the Power-KVM (=Linux’ KVM adapted for pSeries) with Linux-Systems as LPARs. Notice, however, that Power-KVM has a slightly smaller throughput than IBMs hypervisor.
zSeries can run z/OS and z/Linux
For xSeries the same as for any Intel-compatible PC applies.
