Outlook Won't Select Text

Mouse won’t select text in outlook 2007

Mouse does not select or highlight text in outlook. This is common problem and many users suffer. I had this issue couple of days back and I spend many hours surfing net and found solution this problem. To solve this problem you will have two options. Either reinstall office product or delete one of the registry. I am sure you like to go with the option 2. First of all click on start and click on RUN In RUN type regedit and press OK It will open Registry editor. In registry expand HKEY_Current_USER  Software  Microsoft  Office  12.0  word Now under Word you will see DATA folder. Right click on Data folder and click on delete.
Once this registery key is deleted. Reboot your computer I know this is word key but in Microsoft there is always Magic…. Now open outlook and you should be able to select text within email. Please leave comments if this solve your problem. This will help others. Cheers.
