outlook extract details for reminder????

by mish / October 16, 2004 4:40 AM PDT

Is it possible for outlook to extract the date, time and text from a highlighted paragraph on a web page and auto arrange a reminder from it. I know there is software out there that can do it but it`s not free.
any help or pointers in the right direction appreciated...

I've used Visual Basic to do this, but it was for contract and as such I can't share the code. But it did fit on a sheet of paper. It's cheaper to write it yourself sometims.

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?
