Outlook 2013 Folder Pane Blank Fix


Microsoft Fix It

If you came to work today and your Outlook folder pane is blank, then Microsoft Updates have been applied from the standard first Tuesday of the month schedule.

You can click on the folder pane to temporarily show a minimized view of the folders.

While there are few reports that uninstalling KB2817630 from your updates resolves the issue, it doesn’t fix the issue in the vast majority of cases.

The actual resolution is to click on the link below to request an e-mail link to download the hotfix from Microsoft. Note, that a restart is required.

The mainstream press has been quick to criticize and over emphasize the flaw without noting how minor the issue or the fact that hundreds of updates over several quarters (read years) are applied without incident.

Thank you for using Matrixforce as your source for business and technology news when you need it.
