Posted March 9, 2007 by Rob Rogers in Microsoft Outlook

By default, Outlook shows the Inbox when the application is launched. You may want to have it open up to your Calendar or Tasks (or possibly Contacts, Notes, Journal, or other folder). You can change the default opening folder and have the information you need when you open Outlook by following these steps:

1. Click Tools and select Options.

2. Select the Other tab.

3. Under General, click the Advanced Options button.

4. At the top, under General Settings, click the Browse button for Startup in this folder.

5. Select the folder that you want Outlook to show when it launches.

6. Click OK.

7. Click OK to close the Advanced Options window.

8. Click OK to close the Options window.

9. Restart Outlook.
