Enabling the Developer tab

How can I run macros from a window with the Ribbon?

By default the Developer tab which holds the option for running, creating and editing macros is turned off in the Ribbon.

To enable it for Outlook 2007;

  1. Open a message or create a new one.
  2. Click on the Office logo in the left top and choose Editor Options.
  3. In the Popular section, enable the option: Show Developer tab in the Ribbon.
  4. Press OK to close the open dialog.

To enable it for Outlook 2010;

  1. Press the Office logo button next to the Home tab and choose Options.
  2. Select the section Customize Ribbon.
  3. In the right pane, enable the selection field before "Developer".
  4. Press OK to close the open dialog.

Aside from the buttons to launch a Macro and the Visual Basic (VBA) editor, you’ll also find the options to design and publish forms. In Outlook 2010, it will also provide you easy access to COM Add-Ins and Disabled Items.
