I have Outlook 2002 and I am trying to clean out the location dropdown box that is in calender/appointments.  I have found online fixes such as this one one in the registry, but when I get to the preferences folder, there is nothing in there.  Any ideas other than this one?

here is the path that I was told : hkey_curent user\software\microsoft\office\10.0\outlook\preferences  and then delete the location mru .  well, everywhere I have looked in the reg, I havenot found any "location mru" anywhere.  so there has got to be another way.

any ideas?

thanks

Hello.. I do not have Outlook 2002, I have 2000, but I think I found what you
are looking for:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\9.0\Outlook\Preferences

In the right pane you should see LocationMRU

If you did not actually navigate to this key, but did a search for "Location MRU" the
space in between Location & MRU might have thwarted (haven't used that word in a longtime)
your search.. Try again... or maybe the place you got the advice from was Outlook 2000 as
well and it hcange for 2002?? I doubt it though..

As far as clearing the history by deleting LocationMRU... I CANNOT say it is that simple and
recommend making a Registry backup before you attempt this! STRONGLY SUGGEST!
I have never used the calendar's location field, so I added a couple locations to verify I
had the correct registry key.. I saw the two locations I added to this field, BUT there was
also other data there, so I would suspect this is default data, and might screw things up
if you simply delete the whole contents..

Can anyone verify, that if Berylhunter deletes the registry key for Outlook preferences
LocationMRU, that Outlook would create another one in it's place the next time he runs
outlook?

Let us know how you make out...

Thanks very much.  It worked! I also found that the user has to be logged in as themselves, as it is profile specific.

Thanks again!
