    Outlook 2016 Change Paste Special Default Format

    I deleted the files content.outlook & nothing bad happened. I'm still confused, but I'm not so sure it's outlook. I just went to my Amazon account & looked at my last order & chose view order details. I can paste it, including the picture, into this post. However, if I try to paste into Word...

    Outlook 2016 Change Paste Special Default Format

    Hi Diane: I opened several of them. They all have exactly 1 folder & that folder is empty. They are all zero byte. When I copied the file path of some of them, I got: C:\Documents and Settings\Username\AppData\Local\Application Data\Application Data\Application Data\Application...

    Outlook 2016 Change Paste Special Default Format

    It's strange. I can copy images from Amazon into a task window. However, when I buy something & go to my orders & select the product, including the image, I get the picture placeholder. e.g. I bought a thermostat. When I click either the original picture on the item screen OR on the order...

    Outlook 2016 Change Paste Special Default Format

    Thank you for your reply. I pasted the .png as I described above, copy/Paste Special.../choose png/paste. However, I don't know why copying from Amazon has changed the default. For example, I just copied a random picture from the Amazon website & pasted it here by selecting it, pressing...

    Outlook 2016 Change Paste Special Default Format

    It used to be that when I pasted from Amazon into a task, both text & pictures would paste. When I now paste (using Ctrl+V) only the text pastes & not the picture. Instead, it pastes a blank textbox. I have to copy the picture again, use paste special & change to something like .png to see an...

    Outlook tasks keeps changing (updating) dates that I type

    Thanks for the reply. Good question. I did 1 of two things. Sometimes I use Alt+Shift+D because I noticed that inserts the date. Other times I just type the date, like 11/20/21, & copy the Outlook.pst back & forth between my Outlook 2003 on WinXP & Outlook 2016 on Win10. If the problem is...

    Calendar Day View only shows 1 all day event

    I sometimes list more than 1 all day events in the calendar. When I'm in month view, I can see the top 2. However, when I switch to day view, only the first one shows up & I can't find an option to see all of them. Is there a way? Thank you,

    Prevent Outlook 2016 from using DASL filter

    Strange. I couldn't find an option to edit. (Now I see it. I must have waited too long before.) :oops: Yes, it sets it back to Customize... >Filter > Advanced > All tasks > Due Date > Today . I was just hoping for an easier way because sometimes copying from 2016 to 2003 doesn't change the...

    Prevent Outlook 2016 from using DASL filter

    I suppose if I had the code that would always use today's tasks in the TaskPad, that would work too. P.S. Is there a way to edit a post after it's posted?

    Prevent Outlook 2016 from using DASL filter

    I have Outlook 2016 on Win10 & Outlook 2003 on WinXP. I copy Outlook.pst back & forth. Usually there's no problem. In Calendar view on WinXP, I have TaskPad set to show tasks that have the due date today. I also have, I think it's called To Do list or Peek, shown in Calendar view in Outlook...

    Hi Diane: When I type Is there a way to change the autocorrect option in Outlook 2016? Outlook 2016. When I type e.g. 6/12, Outlook offers to make the date 6/12/2021. Is there a way to change the option to offer 6/12/21, i.e. the short date form? While I'm at it, is there a way to insert the...

    Task display now leaves little room for notes

    Thanks, Diane. I've turned off updates, but I'll keep checking this forum to see how the updates change things. Perhaps this should be put in the "Forum Notes, New Features, & FAQ" or "Forum Updates".

    Task display now leaves little room for notes

    Thank you, Diane! I disabled updates & and ran your code. It took care of the problem. I'm a little concerned that I might need a security update in the future. However, if I do decide to try a future update, will I always be able to go back to this one by running your code in an...

    2105 (Build 14026.20246 Click-to-Run) This probably happened with a recent update, but I'm not sure how to revert to an older one.

    Task display now leaves little room for notes

    Thanks again, Diane. No, I don't have a vertical toolbar. It seems that the subject line is extremely large when I click on a task.

    Task display now leaves little room for notes

    Thank you, Diane. I saw that, but it I like to see those commands on the ribbon. Somehow, the ribbon got larger (or so it seems) & I also seem to recall that the categories changed shape. Did something change or update recently?

    Task display now leaves little room for notes

    When I click on a task all of a sudden, the upper half of my display is so large that I have to scroll to see the notes that I've put in. I don't know what happened, but the top half is too large. How can I change this? Thanks in advance.

    Syncing Outlook & iPhone Calendars

    Hi John: Thank you for your reply & advice. I found that using iCloud didn't do what I wanted. My situation is a little more complicated. I have Outlook on two machines: WinXP & Win10. Quite honestly, I prefer the Outlook 2003 that I have on WinXP. I copy the Outlook.pst files back & forth...
