A couple of days ago I changed my Outlook 2010 default settings for pasting, so they all used "keep text only". I now regret that decision and have changed the settings back to the defaults. However, on pasting I only have the option to paste as Text. The other options are not available.

So far I have

  • Removed Skype click to call
  • Repair install of Office
  • File - Options - Mail - Editor Options - Advanced - Cut, Copy and Paste changed all settings to defaults
  • In the same page, checked "Show paste options button when content is pasted"
  • Disabled Evernote add-in (just in case)
  • Rebooted

This is the same problem as here, but in Outlook instead of Excel

Try renaming the following registry: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\14.0\Word\Data

Restart Outlook/Word, and the key will be recreated with the default settings.

Didn't have change to try this out, as scanpst worked for me. Thanks anyway – Greg Woods Mar 25 '14 at 17:08
