I am running XP with Office XP.I have put a shortcut to Outlook in my start menu but it doesn't start on reboot.Any ideas?
Try deleting the existing shortcut (it may have become corrupted) and creating a new one.Place it in C:\Documents and Settings\User Name\Start Menu\Programs\Startup
The shortcut is OK as it works if I double click in the folder and it is in the location suggested.This has never worked.
You don't want any more programs opening on Start-up than is necessary.Get to live with the bother of that double click when you need Outlook.
The reason I want it to open on start up is that I have appointments with reminders (you need that when you get to my age) so I have it running all the time but often forget to open it.
I'm 60 on Sunday and am looked upon as a youngster by some around here.I have removed the Office Tool-bar and Outlook from my start-ups and that reduced the waiting by about 30%.
We seem to have lost the point of my original question.I actually want outlook in my start-ups. It is there but itwont start up!
Try HideOutlook click hereI'm pretty sure it has an option to launch Outlook on startup.
Have you tried "Detect & Repair" under the Help Tab?
OK, the shortcut works and it's in the correct location.Have you used msconfig and checked that Outlook is ticked under the Startup tab?
