Outlook 2010: Change the Screen Location that the Desktop Alert Appears

Desktop Alert SettingsI’ve now got a three monitor setup at the office. In setting up how my new desktop displays information, I’ve moved outlook to the far-right screen. Trouble was, the new e-mail alert still appeared in the lower-right corner of the primary (far left) monitor. What I wondered was how I could change the position of the alert. Turns out you can and Tech-Recipes has the answer. Basically:

  1. File|Options
  2. Mail
  3. Desktop Alert Settings
  4. Preview
  5. Move the alert to where you want it to appear
  6. OK
  7. OK
