Accessing the TO and CC buttons in OWA 2010 with Chrome

OWA users with Chrome as their browser may be missing the ability to click on the TO or CC buttons to access their contacts. This is caused by Chrome disabling support for the Modal Dialog tag that Microsoft uses to call the Address Book.

This issue can be fixed by creating a new desktop shortcut for Chrome with the following properties:

Target: %ProgramFiles(x86)%\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe --enable-show-modal-dialog

Start in: %ProgramFiles(x86)%\Google\Chrome\Application

Chrome shortcut properties

Accessing Chrome via this shortcut will allow users to access their address book through the TO and CC buttons.

Use Ctrl+Shift+R to "Reply all" to the selected message.
