    SOLVED Changing the Name on the Main, Exchange Account in Microsoft Outlook 2016.

    SOLVED Changing the Name on the Main, Exchange Account in Microsoft Outlook 2016.

    SOLVED Changing the Name on the Main, Exchange Account in Microsoft Outlook 2016.

    I know this is more of a Office question than a Windows 10 one but I thought I would try my luck with this question in here. When I first set up my Microsoft Outlook mail account and profiles, each one had a separate name. The first email account I set up was my, main, Exchange Account...

    PDF attachments not opening in Microsoft Outlook 2016.

    Thanks for the heads-up Dave. Just now I decided to restart the computer. When it loaded, the attachments would not open. I restarted the computer again but opened Internet Explorer first before Outlook. The attachments then opened. Something weird going on here. I just hope I don't have...

    PDF attachments not opening in Microsoft Outlook 2016.

    Today it's working okay and the PDF attachments are opening. That's all I want as it has done for many years. I have files and files of PDF accounts so they have always been in that format and I do not want to change. The thing is, it may not work tomorrow and I cannot fathom this thing out...

    PDF attachments not opening in Microsoft Outlook 2016.

    Hi Dave, It is Microsoft Outlook 2016 where the attachments sometimes open and sometimes do not. Microsoft Edge is a browser. How can that affect the attachments in Microsoft Outlook 2016? Just out of interest, I use Internet Explorer as my browser. Because I am disabled, IE is the most...

    PDF attachments not opening in Microsoft Outlook 2016.

    I have checked my plug-ins & Adobe Reader is enabled plus I have checked the Trust settings and they are as they should be. Funny thing today, I clicked on one of the attachments and it opened, in fact they all are opening today. This is what I have been saying, it is very hit and miss...

    PDF attachments not opening in Microsoft Outlook 2016.

    There may be an easy answer to this but I can't seem to find it. I have looked on Google but nothing that has helped my problem so far. I have a laptop and I have Microsoft Outlook 2016. My main email account is a 'Live' account. In the past, when I received an email in this application that...

    Being asked to set up OneDrive for file recovery options in case of a ransomware attack.

    I have now undertaken 2 full scans with WD. 1 with Ransomware enabled & 1 with Ransomware disabled. Both came back completely clean with 0 threats. When the PC boots up now, I still get the yellow triangle warning sign on the WD icon. If I put my cursor on the icon, it is saying, 'Actions...

    Being asked to set up OneDrive for file recovery options in case of a ransomware attack.

    I have now put back Microsoft OneDrive. By doing this, the yellow warning sign came back. In WD where it said, 'Setup OneDrive,' I clicked on this and once I signed back into OneDrive, then the green check mark was back once more. However, once I rebooted, the same scenario as I have...

    Being asked to set up OneDrive for file recovery options in case of a ransomware attack.

    Right, I took the bull by the horns. I have now uninstalled Microsoft OneDrive. When the computer loads up now, the yellow triangle has gone and the WD icon in the notification area shows with its normal green check mark. This is with Ransomware turned off in WD. This now points to the...
