Cannot restore/maximize minimized Outlook windows
Posted on 2012-08-17
I am having a somewhat unusual issue I hope someone here has seen before.
I have a user who was recently moved to a new PC with a new installation of Windows XP Pro SP3 from an older PC with the same OS. Everything seems to be working fine except for one item.
When the user is using Outlook (Outlook 2003 SP3) and she minimizes an opened message she is unable to left click on the message to get it to restore on her screen. However, she can use alt-tab to bring it back or right click on the message she wants and tell it to restore/maximize.
The only program which is affected is Outlook, all other programs (including the rest of the Office Suite, Internet Explorer, etc.) can have multiple instances running and respond to a left click to access minimized windows.
The system has the latest video drivers on it (upgraded in thinking it might help) and I have run both Office repair and Outlook repair. I have also adjusted the visual settings in thinking it might be a customization, but that has also proven fruitless.
I'm not sure where to look at this point.
