In Outlook 2010, when I click to open the Tasks window, one of the "Tasks" folder beneath "My Tasks" has the number 1 (displayed in blue). And I do not know why the number is there or how to remove it. any ideas?

Is the folder name in bold? That means there is an unread task. Green brackets = total count. You can change this by right clicking on the folder and choosing properties then changing which count is shown.

Yes, it is in bold with the number 1 in parentheses. If it is an unread task, how do I read it. How do I even see it? It does not seem to be there when I open that folder.

read:no

in the search field - in my case, the unread items are overdue and marked as completed, so its harder to see they are unread.

That did it. And yes, just like for you, it was a completed task. Thank you.
