resetting office outlook defaults


Vinay - G

If you are trying to restore Outlook views, toolbars, menus or settings, you need to reset the content of the OUTCMD.DAT file.

1. Exit Outlook.

2. Locate the "OUTCMD.DAT" file.

3. Since you are running Windows 7 and you installed Outlook on its default path, you can find the file in "C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Outlook\ "

4. Rename the "OUTCMD.DAT" file to a different filename.

5. Restart Outlook.

Once restarted, Outlook should restore the default OUTCMD.DAT file from scratch and you should be able to use Outlook with its default view settings.
