Auto Complete not working correctly in Outlook 2010.??

 Error:
Auto Complete not working correctly in Outlook 2010.

Solution:
Here's how to see if AutoComplete is turned on:

In Outlook, click File > Options.
Select the Mail tab.
Scroll roughly halfway down until you see Send messages. Ensure the Use AutoComplete List to suggest names when typing in the To, Cc, and Bcc lines box is checked. Image: Use AutoComplete to suggest...

If it's already turned on, your first troubleshooting step should be to clear out the Auto-Complete list. Click the Empty AutoComplete List button.
You’ll see a confirmation window about clearing the AutoComplete list, Click Yes.
Try sending a few test emails to the same email address. If AutoComplete doesn't start working, try the other steps listed in this article.


If you have a home email account
If AutoComplete is enabled and still not working correctly, there may be a problem with a file in your RoamCache folder. Rename the folder to reset AutoComplete. To do this, follow these steps:

Warning: You will lose all addresses stored in AutoComplete.
Start Outlook.
Select File > Info > Account Settings.
An Account Settings window will open, if it says Microsoft Exchange (under Type) please use the Microsoft Exchange Server accounts
portion of this article.
Exit Outlook.
Next we need to find the Outlook folder.
Click Start, type in or copy and paste %LOCALAPPDATA%\Microsoft\Outlook into Search program and files. Image: Search programs and files.

Click on the Outlook folder listed at the top of the window. Image: Search result.

Right-click the RoamCache folder, select Rename, and change the folder name to old_RoamCache. Image: RoamCache location.

When Outlook restarts it will create a new RoamCache folder.
Start Outlook.


iTunes, Outlook Change Notifier add-in interfering with Auto-Complete
iTunes also installs an add-in called Outlook Change Notifier. If you have iTunes Version 10.0.0.22, it had several issues that caused Outlook to not shut down gracefully, causing AutoComplete to not work correctly. Updating your iTunes software to version 10.1.0.56 or newer will take care of the Outlook Change Notifier issue.

If you no longer use iTunes or want to manually disable the add-in:

From within Outlook, click File > Options and select Add-Ins.
At the bottom of the dialog press the button “Go…".
Scroll down the list until you find “Outlook Change Notifier” and un-check it.
Press OK to confirm and close the dialog.

If you have a Microsoft Exchange Server account

How to add Startup items to Windows 8.

Problem

Solution

Open the Windows 8 start screen by doing one of the following:
Press the Windows key
Move mouse to the bottom left of the screen. When the start screen icon appears, click once.

OR (as commented by Rick) Press the ‘Windows key’+'R’
Type %appdata% and press Enter. This should take you to “C:\Users\<User-Name>\AppData\Roaming”.
Navigate to “\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup”. The full path should now look something like:
“C:\Users\<user-name>\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup”.
Add shortcuts to the programs you want to automatically start into this folder.
