Re: Outlook 2010 and menu problem


Hi Barbara,

Thanks, for the tip. I actually fixed my problem with Outlook menus by doing
a system restore. I guess there was some file that was corrupted.

Well the Virtual Ribbon does not work exactly like the old menu structure.
It just makes the new ribbon feature usable with speech software.
Whenever I have had problems accessing the menus, it is because the
application was not maximized.
Press the ALT and the Space Bar together, followed by the letter X.
This will maximize the screen.

If you press ALT and the Space Bar and arrow up or down, you should hear
different options such as Restore, Size, Minimize, maximize and close.
Pressing enter on maximize will do the same thing as typing X.

Hi Everyone,

I got a problem with Outlook 2010 and the menu bar. When I press the alt key
to go to the menu bar I hear something strange. JAWS says to change ribbons
use the left and right arrows to navigate the current ribbon use tab or
shift+tab. Which OK I can arrow to file then home and then so forth but
shift+if I
tab to access the home ribbon for example I can't access anything on this
home ribbon. It's not just the home ribbon the whole menu bar is this way.
And this is only in Outlook that I am having this problem. All the other
applications on my computer have what I call the normal menus where I press
alt and then arrow across to where ever I want to go and then arrow down the
menu to the option I want. I have verified that the virtual ribbons in the
default configuration file in the setting center was set to checked.
Somebody can correct me but I thought if this was checked the menus would
all look like the old windows menus?
