Inserting Screen shots into Office 2010 Documents and Emails

Inserting screen shots into Office documents used to be a 2 or 3 or even 4 step process.  If you didn’t have one of those screen capture utilities, then you were left with using Alt+PrintScreen or Ctrl+PrintScreen, then pasting that into MS Paint, cropping out whatever area you wanted to include, copying that, and then pasting it into your email or word document, that’s just the way it is….until Office 2010

With Office 2010 you can use the new screen shot utility…

Under Word, or Excel, or Even While composing an email in outlook….From the Menu Ribbon Select Insert, then Pick Screen Shot

You get the option of selecting one of the windows that are visible, or you can pick the “Screen Clipping” option which allows you to pick a section of the screen


Now that’s what I call a cool feature.  Good Job Microsoft.

Outlook 2010 Horizontal Lines (Grid Lines)

For some reason, Outlook 2010 removed the separator lines that used to be present in outlook 2003, It’s not the end of the world, but to me, it is very annoying, so I went on to search and couldn’t find the answer to my problem.

Finally looking through the view settings I found the Grid Lines under Other Settings

By setting the Grid Lines to Small Dots (or whatever you like), you get the horizontal separator lines in your outlook inbox again.

Outlook data file cannot be accessed (0x8004010F) with Outlook 2010

So I had a bit of a problem, I upgraded to Outlook 2010 and got this error when I tried to Send / Receive:

Receiving reported error (0x8004010F) : ‘Outlook data file cannot be accessed.’
Sending reported error (0x8004010F) : ‘Outlook data file cannot be accessed.’

So the way I solved the problem was

  • In Outlook 2010, Go to the File Tab and click on Account Settings
  • Click on the account you are having issues with and click on the “Change Folder” button at the bottom
  • Pick Personal Folders\Inbox and hit OK

Send / Receive All and your problem should be gone!!
