    PDF attachments started to open in Edge

    Quite some time ago I read Microsoft was forcing PDF filetype defaults to Edge, and even reversing previously user-set choices. Later on, they apparently "fixed" this back to the (normal) way it has always been. However, for the last couple of days I've been noticing that PDF attachments in...

    Safe way to add or update holidays; Windows Notifications issue

    So in 4.5 years we'll need to repeat this exercise - removing holidays, and re-importing a new batch?

    Safe way to add or update holidays; Windows Notifications issue

    Interesting, I'm checking out the current list view of holidays, and it seems that previous additions of holidays to calendar were up to 2028...

    Safe way to add or update holidays; Windows Notifications issue

    Yep, it's there. I figured it doesn't exist because I tend to use Everything search (from VoidTools) for quick finding a file - and that file wasn't shown. Judging by the timestamp, it was updated with the latest Office update I performed last week. And the "routine inspection" shows entries are...

    Safe way to add or update holidays; Windows Notifications issue

    Should I delete all of them, or just from the current year on? BTW, I don't have the outlook.hol file on this system anymore (Win11, Office 2021). How often do they update these lists anyway? I mean, some dates change by definition (Easter etc.), and some state holidays are added or removed...

    Safe way to add or update holidays; Windows Notifications issue

    Is there any "safe" way to add or update holidays in Outlook, so that you avoid creating duplicates or some similar mess? Like from some plain-text file, where you can remove entries in the past etc.? I used to add them from Options/Calendar/ Add Holidays, but from what I can see, it doesn't...

    MHT files (from "View in browser")

    Does this mean that if I leave it signed out for 30 days, it will start bugging me to sign in again? I'm pretty sure it's tied to the machine, not the MS account, but we'll see.

    MHT files (from "View in browser")

    Not sure anymore - I think I wanted to add it as IMAP, but it was automatically "autodiscovered" and added as an Exchange account (this I only noticed later on). The whole Office suite was subsequently logged into the MS account, and apparently Edge as well. A couple of days ago I went to File /...

    MHT files (from "View in browser")

    Yep, that did it, thanks. As I don't really use Edge, I also noticed that it was logged into my Microsoft account - I suppose it did this when I added outlook.com account to Outlook. The system also logged the whole Office into outlook.com account after adding its IMAP account. Is there no way...

    MHT files (from "View in browser")

    On HTML mail messages, there's usually also an option "view in browser". I remember this used to work when I used it a few years ago. If I do it now, it opens in Edge, and it only displays plain text "code" there, instead of a rendered message with images and formatting. Pretty much the same in...

    iTunes sync on a new computer - any issues to be expected?

    Was there any new/recent announcement from Apple in this regard? Last thing I remember is that they removed these features from Mac, but decided to leave it on Windows indefinitely. It goes against my "local first" principle, so I guess I'll also have to look into other options, if the need...

    Getting rid of "This computer only"

    I followed the instructions on April 11, and everything remained "clean" afterwards. I wasn't aware in the beginning that "default account" and "default data file" are not necessarily the same... (and having two places to edit accounts in Outlook also added to the confusion :) ) Even the junk...

    Getting rid of "This computer only"

    I've had three issues with my main mailbox (IMAP account): - Why are there multiple "This computer only" folders? I don't use them, because I keep contacts, calendars, etc., in another PST file. This IMAP account is the default one, though - if this is related. It's not possible to delete them...

    Unable to move message

    I found this thread the other day (switching to a new message didn't always do the trick). It actually helped to uncheck the setting under Conversation Cleanup at that time. In another occasion later on, switching to a new message worked. I guess it's another thing on the pile of "one step...

    Unable to move message

    In the new Outlook, I often get a dialog box "The operation cannot be performed because the message has been changed." when I try to move an email message from one folder to another (e.g. from IMAP Inbox to a local folder in another .pst). Is there any way to solve this? Usually it "wears off"...

    Email notifications changed with Outlook 2021

    I suppose if you open Settings, you can turn Outlook off under System - Notifications. I don't know if the old banner/alert is still around, though. The envelope icon in the system tray is. But both the envelope icon and the new notifications are not very much in sync with the actual state of...

    Are newer versions of Outlook still "less secure" to Google?

    Any idea why Gmail in Outlook won't show the "All mail"? It is shown in the dialog box where you can subscribe to folders. However, it's not displayed in the folder structure, no matter whether you have it set to show all folders or subscribed only.

    Disable Microsoft Outlook Test Message

    Wow, I also had no idea there was still this option in Control Panel (view by category seems to hide it well). And it seems like something straight from 1997. :) But just opening that window immediately connects to an IP from Microsoft.. I guess I can use that to add those "FROM"-only accounts...

    Are newer versions of Outlook still "less secure" to Google?

    Outlook 2021 (and according to the notice, the same goes for 2019 and 365) does indeed work without "Less secure app access". I turned it off today, and I can still access Gmail. At first I thought it wouldn't work (because I got the same Google login prompt when opening Gmail data structure in...

    Are newer versions of Outlook still "less secure" to Google?

    Yes, there was a sort of 2FA - an embedded web view of that screen where you approve "3rd party apps" or something. But will still it work afterwards (I guess I can try it now by disabling "less secure access")? Better experience... well it usurped the default data file without any prompt...
