    Changing the font that the task view shows

    Outlook 2003. But I just checked my resolution on each machine: Win10 is 1920x1080 WinXP is 1440x900 Not sure why I set it up that way, but the items display is smaller (e.g. desktop icons & their description) on Win10.

    Changing the font that the task view shows

    Thank you very much!! I see that my problem lies elsewhere. I have 2 machines: XP & Win10 using 1 monitor. I copy my outlook.pst back & forth between the 2 machines when I change one. However, the spacing is different on both machines. The the view of the task list is different on both...

    Changing the font that the task view shows

    Using Outlook 2016, I tried to change the default font that shows up when you view tasks in one of the views. When I choose "Customize current view", I can only find a way to change the font for column & row headings, not the actual entries. This is what I mean: I would like to change the font...

    Can't paste an image into a task

    I have Outlook 2016 on Windows 10. All of a sudden (started yesterday), when pasting a picture (png, jpg,, etc) into a task, it shows up while the task is open. As soon as I close the task & reopen, the image disappears. In it's place, is a placeholder, which, if clicked, gives layout options...

    Add Paste Unformatted to QAT

    Using Outlook 2016 with Win10. I looked at an old thread, Macro - paste as plain text, to see if I could do this. However, when I right click & go to "Customize the Ribbon" & then click on QAT, look at all commands, I cannot find a "Paste unfromatted" option to add. I have a Paste Special...

    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 When I click in the search box, it doesn't find any tasks that have been archived.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...
