Improving the speed of Outlook 2007
One of the biggest issues with upgrading to Microsoft Office 2007, is that the new version of Outlook is extremely slow – bordering on unusable. Having put up with the slow performance for the past two weeks, I finally decided to investigate the problem and came across the following fix which was recommended by DELL.
Step 1 Right click on the outlook icon and click “Run as administrator”
Step 2 Once Outlook opens, go to Tools, then Trust Center, then Addins
Step 3 Click the “Go” button a the bottom of the screen and uncheck all the Outlook addins (with the exception of Windows Search Email Indexer)
Whilst I am sure there are other ways to improve Outlooks performance, this simple change has made an amazing difference to the speed at which Outlook runs for me. Hopefully it will work for you to!
