    I believe the path is %APPDATA%\Roaming\Microsoft\Signatures. At least in Windows 8.1 with Outlook 2013.

    Hi Carl,

    Yes, you are correct. If you use Windows or File Explorer to go through the folders then the path is AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Signatures but when you are working with the environment variable %APPDATA% things are a little different. If you type %APPDATA%\Roaming\Microsoft\Signatures in the Start, Run box it doesn’t work. However, if you remove “Roaming” from this path and type %APPDATA%\Microsoft\Signatures at Start, Run it works :). The reason is that (at least) in Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 if you use the environment variable %APPDATA% in the Start, Run box it will take you to the AppData\Roaming folder, rather than the AppData folder. By removing the extra “Roaming” in the path it works properly. Another thing I would like to point out is that I always show my hidden files in File Explorer but by default they are not displayed. If you try to go through the folders in Windows Explorer or File Explorer (in Windows 8.1) you won’t be able to get to them with the default settings because as I mentioned in my article AppData is a hidden folder. By using %APPDATA%\Microsoft\Signatures you can directly go to the Signatures folder even if AppData is hidden.
