Microsoft® Outlook Icon Grayed Out
What are the effects of the issue when icons are grayed out in Microsoft Outlook?
Microsoft Outlook is an efficient e-mail client application. The Outlook program includes various tools and options within the software and different icons for accessing various utilities within the tool. The Microsoft Outlook application would cause issues to the user while running on the system. The icons become grayed out at certain instances can cause the same effect as the icon missing issue. The icons that are grayed out would prevent the user from accessing their functionality. As a result, the user would not find any way to navigate to that option from the Microsoft Outlook application. If the issue has occurred due to any infections present in the software, then more icons within the application would get affected with the issue. Thus the Microsoft Outlook tool becomes dead with no access to any of the functionalities.
Discussed below are the causes and tips to fix the issue when Microsoft Outlook icons are grayed out:
- Causes of the issue
- Remove the infections from the software

Causes of the Issue
The presence of any kind of malware in the system would affect the software installed in the system. The infections have the capability to enter the application program and can change the settings through the registry option, thus corrupting it. The corrupted software also cause issues like icons grayed out, icons missing, etc.
Remove the Infections from the Software
The infections that are present on the system can be removed using any of the system scanners. The system scanners would detect malware in the system and help the user in removing such infections through 'Delete' or 'Quarantine' options. The security features provided with Microsoft Outlook should be turned on and configured perfectly for the purpose of protecting the software.
