If you use Outlook 2007 to handle emails in your business, you can change its settings, views, tool bars and even menus. This enables you to personalize Outlook and helps you save valuable time when searching for certain items or performing various actions. If you want to restore the original settings, views, menus and tool bars, you need to reset Microsoft Office Outlook 2007. The software stores its settings in a configuration file on your hard disk and is able to rebuild this file if it can’t find it. The new configuration file contains only default settings.

Step 1Close Microsoft Outlook 2007.

Step 2Click the Start button and select “Computer” from the menu to open the native file manager.

Step 3Select the system drive — usually “C:” — from the left pane.

Step 4Open the “UsersUserNameAppDataRoamingMicrosoftOutlook” folder, where “UserName” is the name of your user account.

Step 5Right-click the “outcmd.dat” file and select “Rename” from the context menu.

Step 6Type “outcmd.old” as the new name and press “Enter” to rename the file.

Step 7Launch Microsoft Outlook 2007, a new outcmd.dat file is automatically created, and all settings are reset to their default values.


  • You can use any other name when you rename the “outcmd.dat” file.


  • You will lose all your custom settings when you reset the software.
