Tame your computer - calendar clarity
If you start your day checking your Outlook calendar, you might want to open it by default, rather than the Inbox.
1. On the File tab, click on Options.
2. Type the letter A (or click on Advanced).
3. Under Outlook start and exit, click on Browse.
4. In the Select Folder dialog box, click on Calendar.
5. Click OK twice.
You can also use this to automatically open a particular subfolder, which might be handy if you use rules to move emails to a specific folder.
Next time you open Outlook, the calendar will be displayed by default. And remember, you can have both your calendar and inbox open at the same time.
