Startup Switches

How can you set up Outlook 98 so that when it opens, calendar will display first. I tried adding a switch to the Outlook.exe shortcut path by entering
c/ ipm.calendar, and it brought up a new message window first.
1 Solution
In OL2K it is

    /select "Outlook:\\Personal Folders\Calendar"

Replace Personal Folders\Calendar with the folder path to your calendar.

I think this is the same in previous version of OL but if you search for
    Control what happens when you start Outlook
in the help you should find the command line switches.

OL2K also allows you to set the folder to start in.

Choose Tools > Options > Other Tab > Advanced Options.

You can select the folder to start in there.
