With outlook 2010 client, how to make calendar default?

    Question

  • Everytime I open my outlook calendar, it shows me a list view of my appointments, as well as two calendar choices under My Calendar: 1) Calendar  2) Peter Kellner.  When I click on "Calendar", it seems to take me to my normal calendar, and I'm not sure what "Peter Kellner" calendar is.  I'm not using sharepoint.

    Any thoughts as to what the second calendar could be?  Also, I'd like it to come up in monthly view mode just looking at "Calendar".

    Thanks for help on this.

  • There you go; somehow you've created 2 Calendar folders.

    You can copy over the items from one the one Calendar named after your address to the one called Calendar. Afterwards you can remove the calendar so you'd only have 1.

    Copying over the items from the Calendar is done easiest via the List view;
    View-> Change View-> List

    To come back to an earlier question of yours; when you set your view to the Month view, this should stick when you return to your Calendar folder. If it doesn't reset the view of your Calendar via;
    View-> Reset View

  • How many data stores are you using?  Do you connect with Windows Live/Hotmail/MSN?

  • I do have a windows live account, but I don't think I've ever hooked it up to outlook.  I do have a pop3/smtp account setup in addition to my exchange setup.

  • Switch to the Folder List Navigation (CTRL+6) to see all your folders. You should now be able to see a bit more easily in which folder set the additional calendar is located and where in the folder tree.

    You can also right click on the Calendar and choose Properties. Here look at the Location field.

  • \\Mailbox - peter@peterkellner.net\Calendar is location of peter@peterkellner.net

    and

    \\Mailbox - peter@peterkellner.net\Calendar is location of one that shows just "Calendar"

    Here is a screen shot of what I see:

    Hi Peter,

    Could the second calendar come from your POP3 account? Also, as you might know, you can un-check the check box near the second calendar to hide it from view.

    If you go to View > Current view > Day/Week/Month, would the view stick?

     


    - Thanks, Jinesh.

  • have the same problem, however when I change view back to Calendar view, close outlook and start it again it goes back to list view
    FIXED IT

    Basically close Outlook, then run the command "outlook /cleanviews" from the "Start->Run..." menu or wherever you like to run commands from, then start Outlook again.  Should be fixed.  worked for me...
