    When I launch Outlook XP it shows up down on the taskbar. When I would click the icon on my quick launch bar it used to just maximize the instance I had open down on the taskbar but not it is just opening many windows of Outlook. Anyone know of a fix for this? It gets quite annoying.

    If you're not already using a shortcut (but using the one MS puts up there for ya), then create one for outlook.exe.

    Then, right-click the shortcut and hit properties. On the general tab (I think), tell it to run in normal window or maximized.

    That's the short fix. The REAL fix involves the registry.
