    Outlook 2013 taskbar icon closes


    When I click the Outlook 2013 taskbar icon instead of maximizing the program, it closes.

    How can I fix that?

    Thanks

    Hello John, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    Does Outlook 2013 open if you run the .exe directly in the folder below?
    (for 64-bit Windows 8)
    "C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Office\Office15\OUTLOOK.EXE"

    OR

    (for 32-bit Windows 8)
    "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office15\OUTLOOK.EXE"

    If so, then you could just unpin the old icon from the taskbar, and Pin to taskbar the OUTLOOK.EXE to have a new one that works.

    If not, then you might see if reinstalling Outlook 2013 to perform a repair install may help.

    Hope this helps,
    Shawn
