    Win 8, (VM win7, XP, Vista)


    Hi, I also have this problem periodically in Outlook 2013, albeit is on win 7 and not 8.1. The only thing that I found that works is to close outlook and open either Word 2013 or Excel 2013. The only thing different is I am running my win 7 in VMWare 10.1. Now again this doesn't happen all the time just maybe once or twice a week. Since updating to VMWare to 10.1 (a month ago) this hasn't happen, so as to your problem I would say at least try what I did; though there are no promises. . BTW, have you updated 2013 with the new sp1 for office 2013 if not that might help. . .Good Luck.

    Windows key + C.
    Settings
    Power
    Hold shift key and click RESTART.
    Click on Advanced Options then Startup Settings.
    Click Restart and you have almost the full advanced Boot Options menu like XP, Vista or Win 7.
    2. Create a new User Account and test, see if the problem occurs there. If not then you can copy everything from the old account to the new and delete the old.

    I tried both suggestions, but unfortunately neither worked.

    1. Click image for larger version

    2. I created a new user as requested, but to no avail.

    I'm stumped. Hopefully one of the other folks here has an idea.

    That was me attempting to start it in Safe Mode. If you refer back to post #6 you can see the clipping issue.
