How do I create a desktop shortcut for Outlook in Windows 10?
We have a group of users which prefers to be on the newest release of Office. However, our admins prefer to validate each release (especially with our custom solutions) before they roll it out to all users.
This is why we have chosen for the Semi-Annual Channel and have put this group of users in the Semi-Annual Preview Channel.
Since we rarely find anything major, we’d now like to offer these users with the option to switch to Monthly Enterprise, Current or even Insider releases.
However, they need to be able to switch back to Semi-Annual when they run into issues, preferably without the intervention of an administrator.
How can we achieve this?
When I press the Send/Receive button on the Quick Access Toolbar in Outlook, the Send/Receive dialog opens and collects emails for my POP3 and IMAP account but it doesn’t show my Outlook.com (Exchange) account.
How can I include the Exchange account as well?
I’m a big fan of many applications offering a Dark Mode and I’ve also switched my Office theme to Black.
This works well but the Reading Pane in Outlook remains white and creates a very bright contrast with the Black theme.
I read that there should be a Sun/Moon option somewhere to toggle the Reading Pane dark too but I can’t seem to find it anywhere.
How do I turn the Reading Pane dark as well with the Black Theme enabled in Outlook?
We need to perform an action in Outlook as an administrator. I logged on as the administrator of the computer, but I still can’t perform the action.
How can I start Outlook as an Administrator on Windows 10?
When searching in Outlook, I see a group of “Top Results” before showing all other emails relevant to my search query.
I find this confusing since some of these emails are quite old and are now shown at the top and no longer chronologically.
Is there any way to disable these Top Results?
I noticed that Outlook’s search feature is case insensitive and I’m looking for an option to change this.
The reason I ask is because I have several friends and relatives that have names or last names that are also common words.
For instance first names such as; Hope, Sky, May, Norm, or Guy. And maybe even more frequently for last names such as; Brown, Winter, Black, Baker, Cook, or Young.
So when I search for their names, I get a lot of emails returned which contain the word instead of the name. With a case sensitive search, I hope to be able to distinguish between the two.
Is there a way to perform case sensitive searches in Outlook?
I’ve imported the holidays into my Calendar but unfortunately, these days are not marked as Busy or Out of Office but as Free.
This means that when someone tries to schedule a meeting with me on a (regional) holiday, I’ll be shown as available.
Is there a way to change the availability for holidays from Free to Busy?
We’ve recently switched to Microsoft Teams and I’d really like to add a “Chat with me in Teams” link to my signature.
Is this possible?
My colleague granted me permission to her mailbox but when I try to add it to Outlook I get the following error;
Cannot display the folder. Microsoft Outlook cannot access the specified folder location. The operation failed. An object cannot be found.
When I try to expand the folder list, I get another error;
Cannot expand the folder.
She double-checked the permissions and even set it to “Owner” level but I still can’t access it from Outlook on my computer.
How can we make this work?
