Unable to Open Attachments in Outlook, Cannot Create File in Outlook 2010


This issue arises due to Deny Permission of download folder (Outlook temporary folder). We can resolve this problem by changing the permission.


 How to Fix Outlook 2010 to Open Attachments

Step 1:
Create a folder in any drive. For example create one folder in drive C:\ and name it as temp

Step 2:
Open start menu and type regedit then hit Enter. Registry edit window will open.

Now we are going to do some tricks in the registry.
Step 3:
In the registry editor window go to
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\14.0\Outlook\Security\ (Outlook 2010)

[For Outlook 2003: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\11.0\Outlook\Security
For Outlook 2007: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\12.0\Outlook\Security]
Select the Security folder, you can find OutlookSecureTempFolder in the right side
Step 4:
Double click OutlookSecureTempFolder.

In the Value data field type C:\temp\ ('temp' is the folder name that we created before) and then click OK

Step 5:
Close registry editor window and restart the computer. That’s all, now you are able to open any attachment files in Outlook 2010.
