Copy Multiple Items To The Windows 7 Clipboard Using WinKlipper

With Microsoft Office you can turn on the ability to copy multiple items to the MS Office clipboard so you would sort of assume that the same functionality would be built into Windows however this is not the case. I rarely need to copy multiple items and have access to them immediately and when I do I typically just copy them into Notepad++ or Evernote and then access them in either place whenever I need them. I wanted to try having the ability to use the Windows clipboard to have immediate access to multiple items and that is how I ran across WinKlipper which is an free open source application that allows you to do just that. Below I explain how to get WinKlipper, how to install WinKlipper on Windows 7, and the basics of the WinKlipper configuration.

Microsoft Outlook 2007: How To Reinstall Outlook Mobile Service Add-In

I recently wrote an article about an issue I had with the Outlook Mobile Service add-in which comes bundled with Microsoft Outlook 2007. The OMS add-in appeared to cause Outlook to crash numerous times on my Windows 7 computer so I not only disabled it but I removed it. In writing the article I needed to reinstall the add-in so I could get some images to place in the article so people could follow the steps to remove the OMS add-in but I was unable to find any articles explaining anything about removing it or reinstalling it. I figured at some point someone will remove the Outlook Mobile Service add-in and later need to reinstall it so the directions below will allow someone with Outlook 2007 to install the Outlook Mobile Service add-in.

Outlook Experienced A Series Problem With The Microsoft Outlook Mobile Service Add-In

When I first installed Microsoft Outlook 2007 on my new Windows 7 laptop I had some issues with it crashing. At first I was unable to locate the issue but eventually I received the below error which pointed to the Microsoft Outlook Mobile Service add-in or OMS as it is also called. While I never did have any OMS accounts configured the add-in was loading every time that Microsoft Outlook 2007 started thus taking resources and opening the door for error. This add-in is just another service that Microsoft assumes you want and/or need with fairly little documentation available for installing, uninstalling, or reinstalling. Below I describe the error I received, another error that could appear that can be related, and how to remove the add-in from loading ever time Outlook 2007 starts.
