I have recently installed a new PC with Win XP and MS Office. I store my address book in Outlook 2003 Contacts. When I wish to call up an address in Word 2003, I get an error message saying that my address book is not accessible unless I make Outlook my default email handler. When I do this, the address book in Word works OK. I have been using Outlook Express (now version 6) quite happily for several years and am reluctant to change.
What are the pros and cons of Outlook vis-a-vis Outlook Express?
Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly
Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
