How do I remove a stylesheet?

Stylesheets are used by the Wolfram System to control the appearance and behavior of notebook files. At its core, a stylesheet is a collection of special cells in a notebook referenced by another notebook or applied as part of a notebook’s options. In the Wolfram System front end, all available stylesheets are listed in the toolbar option Format ► Stylesheet.

Do not remove stylesheet files from any locations other than the following as doing so may endanger the integrity of your Wolfram System.

To remove a custom stylesheet from your Wolfram System, remove the according stylesheet file from any of the following locations:

  • $UserBaseDirectory/SystemFiles/FrontEnd/StyleSheets
  • $BaseDirectory/SystemFiles/FrontEnd/StyleSheets

    to open the respective directory.

  2. Locate the stylesheet file you wish to remove, then delete it.
  3. Restart your Wolfram System for the changes to go into effect.
