Plain text emails appear in a white (invisible) font in Outlook 2013.

Plain text emails appear in a white (invisible) font in Outlook 2013.??
 
Please follow these steps to resolve it!!
 
1.File > Options > Mail > Stationery and Fonts,
then clicking the Font button under Composing and reading plain text messages.
The font colour should normally be set to Automatic, and in our case it was inexplicably set to white. Setting it back to Automatic immediately solved the problem.
Bizarrely, even though the Font color was set to white (as shown in the above screenshot), you can see that this was not reflected in the preview on either the Font dialog or the preceding Signatures and Stationery dialog.
 
Hope this will work for you as well!!

How to delete PAGEFILE.SYS or PAGING FILE in Windows7

WHAT IS THE PAGEFILE.SYS OR PAGING FILE AND WHY SHOULDN'T I DELETE IT ?

The pagefile.sys is the virtual memory file that is saved on your hard drive. Therefore this file can become quite big. Whenever you don’t have enough physical RAM the system can use the virtual RAM to speed up the current process. So, the virtual memory is quite essential for a fast system and it is not recommended to disable it. Even on systems with a lot of RAM you will need this file badly. Actually, the more physical RAM you have, the more virtual memory you should have. As a rule of thumb, you should always have 1.5 times more virtual memory than physical RAM, recommended is 2 times more.

As you can see, deleting the pagefile.sys is not a good solution and you should only do it if you need disk space urgently. 


Delete pagefile.sys

1. open up the control panel !











2. Click on System and Security !






  3. Click on the System Link !






 4. In the sidebar click on “Advanced system settings”



 5. Go to the tab Advanced:



 6. Click on Settings at the top (Performance field)

7. Go to the Advanced tab

8. At the bottom you will see how much disk space is currently used as virtual memory. Click on the Change button 








9. Uncheck Automatically manage paging file size for all drives !

10. Check No paging file and click on Set  !

11. Click on Ok and reboot. The pagefile.sys will be gone for good you don’t even have to delete it.  




If the pagefile.sys is still there, don’t delete it manually and double-check that you followed the instructions carefully. Only then if the virtual memory is set to 0 you can try to delete the pagefile.sys
