Can you insert a picture into a specific cell?
Or do they only "float" on the page.
They float over the worksheet, but you can adjust the size so that it seems to
fit a cell exactly.
If you insert a picture, you can hold the alt-key down while you move/resize the
picture. When it gets close to the edge of a cell, it'll snap-to that edge.

...Global Column Row Preview Font Size
I know I can change the column, row and preview font size for the current
email folder's view, but how do I do it for all of the email folders? I have
loads of email addresses each with lots of folders. I don't want to have to
do each one at a time. Surely there must be a default font setting (even if
it's only in the registry)?
Thanks in advance,

Sorry for the new thread but even on Google, the thread isn't showing up.
Well, it was SOOO easy, as I knew it would be. The webpage I quoted in my

So, here is the non-VBA way to create a custom menu:
