Microsoft® Outlook® Issues
The issues that a Microsoft® Outlook® user can face and steps to resolve them
Microsoft® Outlook® not only enables you to send and receive e-mails, but also allows you to manage your business and private life simultaneously. However, with time, this program may develop corrupt files and stop functioning properly, leading to a number of issues that you will have to resolve.
Listed here are some of the problems along with the measures that can help you to fix them:
- Slow start and shutdown
- Memory errors
- Data problems
- Difficulty in using calendars
Slow start and shutdown
Using Microsoft® Outlook ® for official or private purpose can be delightful. But, there are times when your PC will take longer than usual to start or even shut down. The good news, however, is that this glitch can be easily solved with just a click. To begin with, you first need to open the ‘C:’ drive and get to ‘Scanpst’ file. Then, click on the ‘Browse’ button in ‘Scanpst’, select the ‘PST’ file, and then click ‘Start’ to scan your PC. Re-open your account after the process is over.
For performance issues like memory errors with your Microsoft® Outlook ® account, it is necessary that you compress your offline files or folders using the ‘Compact Now’ option to clean up and create free space. For this, you need to first go through your e-mails and other folders to remove all that you don’t want and then clean the deleted items with a right-click and empty them. Then, get to ‘Offline Folder File’ by first clicking on the ‘Tools’ menu and then selecting ‘Compact Now’.
It is when your personal or offline folders don’t open that you should suspect data corruption. Improper shutdowns or system hangs can be one of the reasons, but there are other errors that can also be responsible for this. However, you need not panic since there is an easy way to repair and get all your lost information. All you need to do is to click ‘Scanpst’, located in Microsoft® Office, and then enter the name of your file in the next window. Click the ‘Start’ button to scan your files and then click the ‘Repair’ button to repair the corrupt files.
Using the Microsoft® Outlook ® calendar can seem very confusing at times. But, it is an easy application and a very useful one. For learning to use the Appointment Setting and other basic features of the calendar, first go to the e-mail page and choose the ‘Calendar’ option given on the left side of your screen. Choose ‘Date’ by clicking it twice, after which an ‘Appointment’ box will open. To enter an appointment, write the subject and the location, and enter the time when it will begin and the time when it will end. If you want to view your entry, then just go to your calendar and double-click to see your appointments.
