I need to enable "Connect to Office" in our SharePoint 2010 standard and can't find where to do this, can someone help?

By "Connect to Office" I'm guessing you mean "Connect to Outlook"?

To do this you need to:

  • Navigate to the library or list that you would like to connect to.
  • In the Ribbon, click the Library/List tab
  • Click the Connect to Outlook button in the middle of the Ribbon

Thanks, but no there is an option beside the connect to outlook named connect to office and the button is disabled (greyed out) i was wondering if anyone knew how to enable it. – Anonymous Nov 29 '12 at 14:31
You need to have SharePoint Support installed for Office 2010...Try to Modify the installation through Control Panel -> Programs -> Modify, and Add the SharePoint Support Feature. – Mike Nov 30 '12 at 17:55
