How to Expand Outlook Menus
Maybe I’m overreacting, but Outlook menus that change themselves drive me crazy. One of the first things I do whenever I install Microsoft Office is set it so that full menus appear instead of the self-modifying ones. (I guess this could be a general Office tip instead of a general Outlook tip, but it certainly fits here.)
This is how you make the full menus appear all the time.
Making Full Menus Appear
This is what you do to make full menus appear all the time.
NOTE: This change applies not only to all Outlook menus, but to all Microsoft Office menus. Change it here, change it everywhere. Likewise, change it in Word or Excel, and you change it here.
- In the main menu, select Tools, then Customize. This opens the Customize dialog box.
- On the Options tabbed page, set the Always show full menus check box.
Make full menus appear here.
3. Click Close to make the change.
That’s all it takes to get the menus to behave!
