Hello Experts,

I am using Windows 7 and Microsoft 2010.  I just got a new computer and when I look at my emails that  have attachments, It doesn't show the proper file type like PDF, Excel, etc.  Just has a generic picture for all types.

How do I go about associating the file types?

Thanks

dswatt,

In outlook, I see the tab for view, but not seeing anything else you mentioned?

Has Powershell sent you back into the Stone Age?

If managing Active Directory using Windows Powershell® is making you feel like you stepped back in time, you are not alone.  For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why.

double click my computer, then you should see view, if the toolbar is hidden press alt+t then select folder options, view, then remove the check mark from hide extensions for known files types, click ok
