Hi, I just did a fresh install of Windows Xp SP2, and I installed Microsoft Office 2007, and the only problem I am coming up with, is that when I open Outlook, it opens one for each screen (I have dual monitors) Any ideas to fix this problem?

When you set up your dual monitors, do you have it set to extend your desktop to the second monitor or is it duplicating the screen on both monitors?

To set the second monitor to extend your desktop go into your display properties, settings tab and check the check box that says extend my desktop.

Hope this helps..

Try using the /recycle switch when launching the program. This will attempt to use an existing instance.
