I had to do an Outlook Office repair first thanks to you
. Although it didn't resolve it at first it did let me add an Outlook.exe file to my desktop. Before the repair it was grayed out. Once I had the shortcut on the desktop I then had to add a string to the "Target" box which allowed Outlook to work
[space]/resetnavpane (where [space] is the space character).
Thank you again and have a great day
