In Outlook 2000 when going into a meeting request that someone has sent me and clicking on the Calendar button, the Calendar window opens only as half a screen.  I have run Clean Views/Clean Reminders...maximized the screen and closed it/reopened it and nothing has helped.  Any suggestions??

Hiya

This usually only works with IE, but as I have no rights on my blasted works PC, this is a maybe.

1.Close Outlook
2.Start the Registry Editor
3.Go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER \ Software \ Microsoft \ Internet Explorer \ Main
4.Delete the value Window_Placement
5.Exit the Registry Editor

Now, obviously, not Internet Explorer, but try Outlook instead.

If no joy, when the window opens up when you click the calender, instead of maximising by using the buttons, drag it to the size you want. Make sure its still got the middle big box, still. Can't describe the button..

Ah, here it is:

Then, close the window, then try again.

Does the second approach work?

Regards

second option did not work, it went right back to the same size and the only location for the Window_Placement is under Internet Explorer...there is nothing much under MS Outlook

Okay

Try this.

open the window, right click the task bar, tile horizontally, then click on the 'X' while holding down the shift key.
