Offline wasn't enabled in the 1st place so I enabled it, then disabled it again. Still no change.

jimdot, outlook sure can be a bugger. Try to apply the registry change listed in this How To Geek

Tried applying the registry fix as you referred me to in the how to geek but I've got the same results & the Personal folder location is still pointing to the default location. you know, just a bit ago did a download with a download manager I've been using for a ling time now. Usually it will let me brows to a location through explorer, but this time it wouldn't let me browse just as outlook is no letting me to choose a new location for the pst files. Hmmm??? I think Maybe there might be something else going on here. I'm going to run system file checker & if that doesn't work then do a system repair. I am bald now as I have no hair left to pull out!!!

Hi Jimdot.

If you have the installation for office could you try a repair on office please?

Hi benjy206 & Dude. I've already tried uninstalling, reinstalling & doing repairs at least twice now with no success. Thanks for the suggestion though. As an update, I now believe that something is corrupted on my system & that this problem has nothing to do with Outlook itself. Several other apps that I use where you should be presented with an explorer window in order to select a file aren't working either. We can just close this issue out if both of you would like.

I need to go figure out what's corrupted on the system. Thanks very much for the help from both of you.

Have a great day!!
Jim

Maybe you should try the sfc /scannow command? SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker
