Can’t Save a Toolbar in Outlook? Try This!
However in some unusual cases the toolbar will not be visible and you will have to repeat the process above. Obviously repeating this process each time you open the email client might prove tiresome, so you might like to try some of the following suggestions.
First of all, press WINDOWS + R to open the Run box, and enter the following:
“C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office11\Outlook.exe" /ResetOutlookBar
(Note the space before the “/" character; also note that the file path to Outlook on your PC may differ).
You should also try:
“C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office11\Outlook.exe" /CleanViews
With both of these switches run, Outlook should start saving your toolbars. Failure here would suggest that the software has some sort of add-in or template corruption, which would probably be best resolved by uninstalling, removing all traces of the application and then reinstalling.
Note that any problems with menus resetting to defaults as opposed to tailoring themselves to your previously selections might also be resolved by these methods.
