  • 4. Office 2010 Appearance and Tweaking
    Recently upgraded to Office 2010 and am VERY unhappy with the appearance of the various apps - especially Outlook. Three questions please: 1) Other than the 3 included "skins", is there any way to change the color scheme? It is both "blah" and hard to read. I'd like a bright color with nice contrasting text. 2) Is there any way to get smaller icons on the main ribbon? The ribbon simply takes up too much room. 3) Is it possible to customize any of the icons (create a new one or alter the existing image)? Thanks in advance for any assistance or information. -- Allan Forum Admin

    Outlook start crashing upon every attempt to open it. It will open in safe mode, but will crash every time it is started outside of safe mode. No other Office programs are affected. I have tried uninstalling just Outlook and the entire suite (2k3 Pro) and all updates have been done... I get the following message in my event view: Faulting application outlook.exe, version 11.0.8010.0, stamp 43d16d53, faulting module mso.dll, version 11.0.6568.0, stamp 42e18ef6, debug? 0, fault address 0x0005cd6d.

File Name Too Long For Recycle Bin - Cannot Delete

Postby TWFyayBTdGV2ZW5zb24 » Tue, 11 Nov 2003 08:01:10 GMT


Somehow when transferring old emails from one IBM T40 to the My Documents folder on another, identical, IBM T40, much of the body of the text of an old Outllook email message somehow became part of the file name.  XP will not let me delete the file and gives me an error message that the file name is too long for the Recycle Bin ... and it will not let me rename it or move it either.  It is in a subfolder of My Documents and I have tried deleting all of the folders above it as well and I get the same message.

I have been on the phone for several hours with IBM Techinical Support and they have no solution as well, other than to call Microsoft.

5.Can you retrieve-If you DELETE the file 'Inbox' from the Recycle bin on desktop

I was trying to delete some files that involved several 
pop-up banner ads & windows from interfering with my 
search for telecommuting jobs.  While clicking around on 
the internet, somehow this SPYWARE program began to write 
itself on to my hard drive, so I went into Windows 
Explorer to FIND FILES or FOLDERS to find it & DELETE 
whatever was associated with it!  Well, in the process, I 
ended up sending these files to the RECYCLE BIN on my 
desktop to get rid of them.  However, in the process of 
DELETING them, I also deleted a file 'Inbox' that I 
thought was part of the problem.  I pray there is a way to 
retrieve these emails I accidentally deleted!!!  PLEASE 
HELP ME!  These were very important emails regarding 
employment!  Thank you.
