    Hello all...quick question for ya:

    Has anybody figured out a way to automatically have Outlook close when you shutdown? When I have Outlook open, and I try to shutdown, it doesn't automatically close. Instead, a warning pops up which says (paraphrasing here): Please close all Microsoft Office programs before shutting down.

    Thx in advance!

    Use Cacheman or Regedit to alter this setting:

    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop]
    AutoEndTasks=1

    Automatically closes running applications when Windows shuts down.
