How to setup Outlook to change the default folder that Outlook starts.

Do you use the Calendar a lot, and want Outlook to display the Calendar first (when we open the application), instead of your Inbox? Or do you want Outlook to display your Contacts?

In order to achieve it we must follow the steps below:

First of all we must select the File tab in order to go to backstage view and then from the drop down menu to select the command Options as we can see in the image below.


The Outlook Options window appears where from the left of the window we select the category Advanced. Then from the right of the window and under the area Outlook Start and Exit, we locate the command Start Outlook In This Folder.

Then from the right of the command we select the Browse button. The Select Folder window appears where we just select the folder that we want.


The next time we start Outlook the default folder that will appear will be the one that we selected.

Below you can check out the video describing on how to set Outlook to change the default folder when it starts.
