Can't right click in Outlook

By Eminent87 ·
Hi,

I'm having this weird problem with Outlook, all of the sudden I can't right click on my calendar events anymore. For example, when I'm in calendar view it will show all the daily appointments. Usually, I'm able to put the cursor over the appointment and then right click it and it'll give me a list of options. Some of those options includes: open, print, reply, reply to all, forward, delete, etc... Now it's not there anymore. So now when I right click all you can see is a quick flash and nothing is there. Does anybody know how to fix this?

I'm running Windows 2000 with Outlook XP. I've checked the mouse and it's working fine on other applications. I only notice this problem only in Outlook. It the whole Outlook, calendar is just one example. Does anybody has any idea as to what is going on?

Thanks in advance!

Have you tried to reinstall Outlook? Sounds like a program file has gotten corrupted.

Anna777 - Yes, I have tried reinstalling Outlook several times but gotten the same result. I've also noticed that this only happens to this user's profile only. If I log in as myself then everything works fine.

have you tried accessing the options from the 'File>New>Appointment' etc. menu instead of only right-clicking?

berjusza- Yes, I'm able to do that but it's very time consuming. It's much faster to be able to right click it.

If you login as yourself then it all works fine? User's profile is corrupt.

Delete all profiles.... and then recreate the users profile.

I ended up deleting the user's profile and creating a new one. The user had a lot of personal settings on there so I was hoping to fix the problem before resorting to creating a new profile. Although your answer wasn't what I was looking for, I'll give you the points for trying.
