How To Double Check The Recipient Of An Email Before Sending It

Outlook Setting

         Features Of Outlook

Outlook is one of the most trusted email client programs in the market and has been around for more than fifteen years. This email client not only helps you to send and receive emails, but also comes loaded with features like scheduling appointments, storing contacts etc.

While using Outlook or any other email programs, you may accidentally sent an email to a different user than to the one you had intended. Now, if there was a pop up message asking you to confirm the sending, it could be very helpful. Unfortunately, Outlook does not have this feature included in it. However, by a few changes to the Outlook Setting, you can bring up a password pop window each time you try to send an email. The advantage of this technique is that you will have time to confirm that the email is being sent to the right person.

Steps Involved

  • Press the key with the Windows logo in the keyboard to bring up the Start menu.
  • In the Start menu, choose the option All Programs. This will open a menu that lists all the installed programs in the computer.
  • Place the mouse over the option Microsoft Office and this will open a new sub menu with the list of all Microsoft Office programs installed in the computer.
  • Click on Microsoft Outlook to launch the program.
  • In the Outlook window, select the option File.
  • Choose Account Settings from the drop down menu. This will open the window for Account Settings.

  • Choose your email account and double-click it. This will open the Outlook setting window for the particular email account.
  • You will find a check mark next to the option Remember password under the heading Logon Information. Click the box next to Remember password and this will remove the check mark.
  • Select the button Next.
  • Click the button Finish and this will complete the changes to the settings.
  • Select the button Close in the window for Account Settings. This will take you back to the main Outlook window.
  • Choose the option New to compose a new message. Try to send the message.
  • You will find that a small window pops up asking you to enter the password for the email account.

With the above steps, you can double-check the email recipient before sending it. This will help you to avoid sending emails to undesirable contacts accidentally. For further assistance on Outlook setting, you may contact our technical support team.

De-Cluttering Firefox Browser By Removing Unnecessary Add-Ons And Toolbars

Mozilla Firefox Support

     Removing Firefox Browser Add-Ons

According to the Mozilla Firefox support website, removing unnecessary add-ons and toolbars from your web browser can speed up its performance considerably. If Mozilla Firefox takes too long to load, a pop up message will appear at the bottom of the browser indicating the problem. When you click on the option provided in this message, you will be directed to the Mozilla Firefox tech support website.

There, on the Mozilla Firefox support web page, you will see some of the reasons for slow performance of the browser and tips for fixing the problem. One of the solutions mentioned on the page will be a complete reset of the Firefox application, which will remove all the add-ons, browser data, application settings, and malware infections, and restore the browser settings back to its initial state.

This option will improve the functioning of Firefox browser, but will remove all your saved passwords, browsing history, and any other data stored in the browser. Therefore, resetting the browser application like this should be your last resort.

Malware Infections

         Contact Firefox Support

Yet another option mentioned on the Firefox support page for improving the browser performance will be the removal of unnecessary add-ons and toolbar applications. Adding many add-ons and toolbars might make your browsing easier, but these add-ons will influence the overall performance of the application. Overload of toolbars and add-ons reduce the speed and performance of the browser. Therefore, you should occasionally de-clutter the browser by getting rid of the unwanted add-ons and toolbars you see there.

To do that, just go to Tools menu in Mozilla Firefox and click on the Add-ons option in the context menu. It will open the Add-ons Manager on your computer screen. Select those add-ons that are useless, or that which you use rarely, and un-install them one by one. For this, click on the add-on and select Remove or Uninstall option.

Leave behind only those add-ons, which you consider necessary for your browser’s functioning. Restart Firefox browser to complete the un-installation process. From now on, remember to keep the number of add-ons in your Firefox browser to a minimum.

Also, remember to update Firefox from time to time, or just enable the automatic update option in your browser. Delete browsing history, if you no longer need it. For more tips on improving the performance of the Firefox browser, get in touch with our tech support team right away.

Outlook Problems

         Fix Outlook Problems

If you are a frequent user of Microsoft Outlook, you must be familiar with some of the common Outlook problems. But, we are not going to discuss the common Outlook problems here. A couple of weeks ago, a friend of mine came to me asking for a solution to an Outlook issue that he encountered. I checked his Outlook application and found out that the issue was strange. When I tried to open a new email in the inbox, an error message popped up stating “An extension failed to initialize. Can’t open file: Extend.dat”.

On my lookout for a solution to fix this annoying error, I found out that the same error could arise when a user tries to launch the Out of office assistant or even when he attempts to exit the Outlook application. Once started, this annoying error message could be surfacing until you troubleshoot it. I am pleased to describe here the troubleshooting steps that I worked out to fix this error.


  • Exit your Outlook application if it is currently running.
  • Navigate to the Start button and right-click on My Computer from the resulting menu.
  • Select the option titled Explorer from the dropdown menu.
  • Locate the Tools option on the menu bar that is located at the top of the screen and select it.
  • Choose Folder Options from the resulting menu.
  • Locate and click on the View tab in the Folder Options dialogue box.
  • After that, select the checkbox before Show hidden files and folders. Proceed by selecting the OK button.
  • Now, locate the folder labelled Documents and Settings and click it to open. Navigate to the folder named after your username.
