    Problems with Outlook 2010 signatures in Windows 8


    Under Windows 8 I'm unable to add a new signature to Outlook 2010, the "new signature" window appears but after entering the name of the signature and pressing the {ok} button nothing happens. Never had a similar problem with Windows 7. Any ideas ?

    It seems it's related to some changes in folder structure but not 100% sure about that...

    Did you delete what you did, shut outlook down and try again? If it weren't for Microsoft what would we do with all our time? :-)

    My 2010 works fine.

    I use Outlook 2010 and Win8. Sigs work for me. This sounds more like an Outlook issue than a Win8 issue. Sorry that I don't have a better answer.

    Wondering what you mean by "nothing happens" after you hit the "OK" button. Do you mean the signature doesn't appear on emails or that signature set-up box just sits there with no change?

    thanks for your answers... For those that doesn't have the problem: Could you please confirm if your Win 8 is an upgrade from Win 7 or a new setup ?

    Mine was upgrade from 7 to 8 and outlook was installed in 7.

    Have your tried to repair outlook. Control panel/programs/ right click on it and normally there is a repair option.
