General Discussion / Outlook 2013 Search function not working
« Last post by dickJ on February 10, 2017, 11:17:51 PM »
I am running Windows 10 Pro,  Version 1607, and Outlook 2013 mail. My mail comes from Charter, so I assume its POP3. I don't believe I have ever used the email Search function until I tried it a few weeks ago.  When I type an email sender's name in the Search box  it just always says "We couldn't find what you were looking for" no matter what sender name I choose.
I read somewhere online to try running Outlook 2013 in Safe Mode and see if it works then.  It does!
So, what can I do to fix Outlook so it works in normal (non-Safe) mode?

Hello All,

Here's a video from David Goguda that explanis how to install a graphical environment for Arch Linux
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P4IV5BYPiPs&list=TLGGbmrYWJV4IacxMDAyMjAxNw

The previous video assumes that you have already installed Arch Linux and have it running from the Terminal. 
If Arch Linux is not installed, install it by following the David Goguda tutorial at

Hi Bob,

Here's a possible solution that I found at https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/2599449/error-message-opening-a-document-in-word-word-cannot-open-this-file-because-it-is-larger-than-512-megabytes

Error message opening a document in Word "Word cannot open this file because it is larger than 512 Megabytes

Symptoms
When you try to open a Word file, you receive an error:
Word cannot open this file because it is larger than 512 Megabytes

Cause
This is the maximum file size Word can open.
Note The maximum file size is limited to 32 MB for the total document text only and does not include graphics, regardless of how the graphics image is inserted (Link to file, Save with document, or Wrapping style) into the document. Therefore, if the file contains graphics, the maximum file size can be larger than 32 MB.

Resolution
There is a workaround to resolve this issue.

Workaround Steps:
Rename the Word file to a Zip (.docx to .zip).
Open Windows Explorer, locate, and then open the saved compressed file that has a .zip file name extension.

Note To be able to change the 'docx' extension to 'zip', you have to have Windows Explorer's options set to show the extensions. For more information about displaying or hiding file name extensions, see the following article:
How to show or hide file name extensions in Windows Explorer
Select the word folder, and then open the media folder to display the graphics.
Delete (or move to a new folder) some graphics to reduce the file size.
Rename the file back to docx and open with Word. If Word displays some errors, because it cannot find some files, click Yes to recover the contents.
There will be placeholders for the deleted (or moved images).
Right-click the image placeholder, select Change Picture and browse to the folders where the pictures are saved to select the pictures.
Click the arrow next to the Insert button and select Link to File.
Save the document.

Hi Bob,

Do you know the file extension?  I've seen tips for opening large .pdf and Excel files.
