    When I click on the Windows icon in the lower left corner of my screen, a menu opens. At the bottom of that menu is a line that says "all programs". It opens into a menu of programs on my machine.

    Inside of "all programs" is listed a folder called Microsoft. Inside of it is Outlook 2010.

    However, I recently wanted to send an email using Outlook 2010 by clicking on a link on a website. A window opened that would allow me to select the email client I wanted to use from a list of programs. But I can't find Outlook 2010.

    When I click the Windows icon in the lower left corner of my screen & then on "computer" and then on C drive, there is listed in C drive two folders, Programs & Programs (x86). However, the Microsoft folder containing Outlook 2010 is not in either one of them.

    When I did a search for Outlook 2010 on my C drive, the result said it can be found at
    C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Start Menu\Programs\Microsoft Office

    However, I cick the Windows icon in the lower left corner of my screen & then on "computer" and then on C drive, I cannot find a ProgramData directory. So, where is my Ourlook 2010?

    Thanks.

    The default installation location for Outlook 2010 is C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office14.

    The short-cuts to your Office applications can be found at -

    C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Microsoft Office

    I believe the ProgramData folder may be hidden, if so, click on "Tools" >> "Folder Options" then on the "View" tab put a check in the box beside "Show hidden files, folders, and drives."
