    Completed Tasks (2000)

    Does Outlook allow changing the way completed tasks are display?

    I'd like to have completed tasks displayed in a color, not lined out. Is this possible?

    Yes, there are ways to change how you view completed tasks.
    Did you know that you can view only completed tasks? If not, click on View, Current View, Completed Tasks. The completed tasks do NOT have the "strikeout" feature in that view.

    But assuming that you are viewing completed tasks along with active tasks, you can still make changes. Here's the way I know:
    1. You need to be Tasks (obviously)
    2. Right click on one of the column headings (such as subject or due date)
    3. Click on Customize Current View
    4. Click on Automatic Formatting
    5. Select the "Completed and Unread Tasks" (or "Completed and Read Tasks")
    6. Click on Font
    7. Uncheck "Strikeout" effect
    8. Then use the color feature to choose the appropriate color.

    You will probably want to do this for both of the "Completed ... " rules. I hope this helps. <img src=/S/clown.gif border=0 alt=clown width=15 height=15>

    You HOPE this helps? This is EXACTLY what I was looking for! Thank you very much. (I've wanted to change that for what seems like years -- maybe it has been years.) <img src=/S/trophy.gif border=0 alt=trophy width=15 height=15>
