If you update an Outlook contact but the old email address keeps showing up in Outlook’s autofill, just follow these steps:
- When the old email address appears in the autocomplete box, use your up/down arrow keys to highlight the address
- Press the “Delete” key on your keyboard
- If you haven’t done so already, finish typing the contact’s name
- Now press Ctrl+K on your keyboard to load the new email address from your contact list
The “zoom” command can be tricky to find in Outlook. Just follow the instructions for your version: Continue reading
Let’s say you’re writing an email in Microsoft Outlook and you have your font size set to 12, but the font looks like it’s size 6 or size 24! Or say you’re reading an email, and the font size is similarly unreadable or otherwise out-of-whack.
This is usually just caused by incorrect zoom settings. (When working on laptops, it’s often easy to inadvertently trigger a zoom action with the trackpad.)
Thankfully, it’s an easy fix. Just follow the instructions for Outlook 2003, 2007, and 2010 in my How to Zoom Emails in Outlook post to reset the zoom level to 100%.
Often I’ll find that either the title bar of a window, or the whole window itself, is somehow “located” off the edge of the screen. This often happens when changing between my built-in laptop monitor and my larger external monitor.
Thankfully, this problem is easy to fix. Just follow these four simple steps:
- Right-click on the window’s taskbar button. (The taskbar is the bar, usually at the bottom of the screen, where the “Start” button is located along with buttons for open windows.)
- Click “Move” from the popup menu that appears.
- Press one of the arrow keys on your keyboard (left, right, up, or down).
- If the window doesn’t appear, move around the mouse until it does.

Recently when coding in PHP I got this error:

Turns out it was because I forgot to close a comment block (forgot the

Silverlight, Microsoft’s Flash competitor, is out of beta as of today! According to a PCWorld article:
The 1.0 version of Silverlight, which is being released to the Web, is geared to providing video. Accessible at the Silverlight Web page, it has been available in a beta release. A more potent successor, Silverlight 1.1, will provide for more interactive content, including support for .Net development and transactional capabilities. It remains only available in an early alpha release format.
While Silverlight currently works with Windows and Macintosh, Microsoft is endorsing Novell’s plan to make Silverlight run on Linux clients via the Moonlight project.
Microsoft cites several differentiators between Silverlight and Flash. Silverlight, Deshpande said, offers high-definition video at a lower cost and functions with Microsoft’s developer tools. The company also is offering a SaaS-based component, Silverlight Streaming by Windows Live.

Whether or not Silverlight will pose a threat to Macromedia’s ubiquitous Flash player remains to be seen, although Microsoft could have the advantage of being able to push Silverlight to Windows users through Microsoft Update (assuming such a move wouldn’t cause antitrust concerns).
