Windows 10 (april 2018 update) and outlook – howto-outlook electricity projects ks2

The upgrade process from Windows 7 and Windows 8 is actually quite streamlined and trouble free for most configurations. Things are even easier when applying a major update to Windows 10. However, for either upgrade, there are still a couple of attention points before you start.

• Is your Outlook version compatible with Windows 10?• Upgrading from Windows 7 or Windows 8• Updating Windows 10 to the latest version of Windows 10• Office 365 Activation not valid• Add-in Compatibility• Virus scanner integration• Send/Receive error: 0x800CCC13• PST File access is denied• iCloud doesn’t work• No New Email notifications• Rebuild search index / no search results• Pictures not showing and “Work file” error• Scan for and fix more issues with SaRA• Clean install or upgrade has failed• Other changes concerning Outlook and Windows 10

Of course it is always wise to stay current with the latest Service Pack and update releases, so make sure you set Windows Update to also include updates for other Microsoft applications. Office 365 installations will automatically keep themselves up-to-date but you can always check for updates manually.

Continuing to use Outlook 2007, or even earlier versions, really isn’t recommended (on any version of Windows that is) as Office 2007 has been out of extended support for quite some time now and previous versions of course even longer. These versions of Office are vulnerable for various security issues for which updates haven’t been made available anymore. Upgrading from Windows 7 or Windows 8

When you are upgrading from Windows 7 or Windows 8.1, then you can do an actual in-place upgrade as long as you as you are upgrading to the same Windows Edition (Home, Professional or Enterprise). If you were using Windows 7 Ultimate, then you can upgrade to Windows 10 Professional. Windows 7 Start users can upgrade to Windows 10 Home.

Programs, files and settings will then be migrated automatically to Windows 10 and after upgrading you can directly logon to Windows 10 and start Outlook with all its files and settings in place; just like you left it in Windows 7 or Windows 8.

Nevertheless, it is still good practice to make a proper backup (not just of Outlook, but preferably your entire computer) and write down your account settings before starting the upgrade process. In these cases it really is better to be safe than sorry.

When doing an in-place upgrade, it will automatically run the Windows 10 Upgrade Assistant. This tool will indicate which drivers and applications you need to uninstall or update before or after the installation process. This will increase the speed of the upgrade, its chance of success and decrease the chance of ending up with broken applications or other troubleshooting requirements.

A common application that you’ll need to uninstall on Windows 7 is Microsoft Security Essentials. There is no need to install this afterwards as Windows 10 has the features of Microsoft Security Essentials built-in in the form of Windows Defender.

When you have an Office 365 license and start Outlook or any other of the Office applications for the first time after the upgrade, you may be prompted to log on with your Microsoft Account again to re-activate your installation or receive a warning that your license is no longer valid.

If you are using any add-ins with Outlook, make sure they are also compatible with Windows 10. You’ll probably find that most of them are compatible as Windows 10 is in that aspect similar to Windows Vista, Windows 7 and Windows 8 and most of the compatibility requirements for add-ins are coming from Outlook and not from Windows.

Even though Windows 10 has its own virus scanner in the form of Windows Defender, you might opt to install a 3rd party virus scanner instead. When installing your virus scanner, make sure you do not install any Outlook integration components. This is not specific to Windows 10 or any Outlook version but a general best practice for Outlook.

• Browse to the file location as indicated in the error.• Right click on the file and choose Properties.• Select the Security tab.• Press the Edit… button.• Select your user account.• Select the “Full control” permission.• Press OK until all dialogs are closed.• Start Outlook again.

Do you have the iCloud add-in installed? It may not work anymore after upgrading to Windows 10. To solve this, remove iCloud from your mail profile, repair the iCloud installation and then re-add the iCloud configuration to Outlook again via iCloud Control Panel.

• In the Action Center, click on All Settings or click on Settings in the Start Menu instead.• Click on: System.• From the panel on the left select: Notifications & Actions.• In the “Get notifications from these senders” section at the bottom, click on Outlook.• Make sure that you have enabled all notification options and select how many notifications should be visible in the Action Center.• Close Settings.

Outlook will only show New Email Alerts when the message is delivered to the Inbox folder. To make it show an alert even when the message is automatically moved to another folder by a Message Rule see the guide Creating a permanent New Mail Desktop Alert. Rebuild search index / no search results

If results are still not being returned after you’ve left your computer idle for an extended period of time (like for instance overnight), then you can use the following troubleshooting guide: Fixing Instant Search Pictures not showing and “Work file” error

Outlook uses a subfolder in the Temporary Internet Files folder to write its temp files which are retrieved from the Internet. For instance; linked pictures and attachments. To make sure a proper folder is being created, we reset the reference to this folder so that Outlook will recreate the registry entry and folder automatically the next time is needs to be used.

If you are still having issues now, or even if you haven’t, use the “Microsoft Support and Recovery Assistant for Office 365” (SaRA) to scan for a specific issue or your entire Outlook configuration for any known issues that can cause problems.

Via Advanced Diagnostics, SaRA can do a full scan of your Outlook configuration and will create a detailed report of all Outlook issues it detected. For any problems that are listed in the report, you are provided with a link to an article about that specific problem so that you can read about possible fixes.

If you were previously using Windows 7 or Windows 8, using Outlook on Windows 10 is pretty much the same. If you were previously using Windows XP or Windows Vista, you’ll also find some functionality changes within Windows 10 that will affect Outlook.

• Organizing and managing Outlook windows• Starting Outlook as an administrator• Starting Outlook in Safe Mode• Enabling automatic updates for Office• Add frequently used Templates to Outlook’s Jump List• Creating an Outlook Desktop shortcut in Windows 8 or Windows 10• Searching for Outlook items from the Start Menu, Start Screen or Explorer Search• Live Tiles for Outlook on Windows 8
