  2. Select the type of troubleshooting you want to do, then select Run the troubleshooter.  
  3. Allow the troubleshooter to run and then answer any questions on the screen. If you see a message that no changes or updates were necessary, you can try recovery options, or find out more about Outlook error codes and upgrade and installation error codes.

Windows 8.1 and Windows 8

Select Start  > Settings  >Troubleshooting, and then follow the instructions for the kind of troubleshooting you want to do.
