    Searching tasks that are archived

    Thanks for the reply. Yes, I tried "All task items". I just tried "All Outlook items" & it worked this time. It also gives me results in Contacts & current tasks. Is there a reason that it won't work for either All Task Items or Current Folder?

    Searching tasks that are archived

    I have Outlook 2016 & Windows 10 Pro. When I click on my archived tasks folder, it doesn't show anything (nothing is due). When I click in the search box, it doesn't find any tasks that have been archived. How can I search my archive.pst for past tasks? Thank you in advance.

    Add, remove, & reorder folder pane

    Thanks again. But I can't find that icon (show A to Z). And when I close Outlook & reopen it, it only shows the calendars in the folder pane. I have to manually press Ctrl+6 to show all the folders.

    Add, remove, & reorder folder pane

    Hi Diane: Thanks for the link to the article. I do have Outlook 2016. Is there a way to reorder the folders because I can't seem to find it? Also, while I can press Ctrl+6 to get the folder pane to show all folders, that used to be my default way of opening Outlook. Now, when it opens to...

    Add, remove, & reorder folder pane

    Hi Diane: Thank you so much. I got rid of seeing 2 calendars. However, when I pressed Ctrl+2, it shows the calendars in the folder pane, but not tasks, contacts, notes & shortcuts. I just wanted to reorder the list. How can I get the other items back & reorder the list? Edit: I found that...

    Add, remove, & reorder folder pane

    Somehow, my folder pane has reordered itself. I've attached what it looks like now. I don't use Outlook 2016 (on Windows 10 Pro, 64-bit) for mail...just for calendar, tasks, & contacts. On the image below, I would like to: 1. Eliminate the 2 calendars in the folder pane. 2. Get rid of inbox...

    How can I change my calendar view back

    Thank you for your quick reply. I got everything back to normal:). Only one problem though, 1) when I move the bar on the right to get rid of the April calendar, it comes back every time I close Outlook & reopen it.

    How can I change my calendar view back

    I somehow screwed up my Calendar view when Outlook opens. 1. Two months show on the left bar & I don't want them (see image). I do want to keep the scrolling column on the left that starts with Calendar, tasks, etc. 2. On the right side, I had today's tasks listed (I think it was called...

    Restore an individual all-day recurring event

    Thank you for your solution! I have both Outlook 2003 & 2016. I had experimented only with 2013. After reading your post, I found that in Outlook 2016, I could right click, drag & then choose Move or Copy. In Outlook 2003, I couldn't do that, but I could left click in the center of the event...

    Restore an individual all-day recurring event

    I accidentally deleted a single all-day recurring event & wanted to restore it. Outlook doesn't let me select & copy an individual all-day recurring event, so I can't copy & paste an individual event the way you can with a recurring event that has a start & end time. The only way I found to do...

    Import Categories from Outlook 2003

    Thanks, Michael. Tried to shortcut the process. I exported my Categories from WinXP & merged them in my Windows 10 registry at HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\11.0\Outlook\Categories [Note: had to change / to \]. But that didn't work. I wonder if there's a way to add a key to...

    Import Categories from Outlook 2003

    Is there a way to import all my master categories from Outlook 2003 to Outlook 2016, rather than copying them one by one? Thank you in advance?

    Add a contact to the New Task in Outlook 2016

    In Outlook 2003, when I added a new task, there was a button that allowed me to associate one or more contacts to a task. I can't find the same option in Outlook 2016. Is there a way to do this? Thank you.

    Thank you so much. I can stop looking for a way to due this directly & stop driving myself crazy.

    Import an .ics file to a specific calendar

    Thank you, Diane. I was doing it incorrectly, but there doesn't seem to be a way to add it directly to Outlook. This is my daughter's school schedule. When I click the link on their website, it gives me a choice of "Open with Outlook" or download. If I click "Open with Outlook", only the...
