I am going into calendar settings in the options menu but cannot get the week to start on a Sunday. I am successful at getting  the week to start with all other days but not Sunday - when i tried to get the week to start on Saturday i still saw Sat / Sun as a combined day. Could that be linked?

thx

Greetings oranco !

The day of the week that the calendar starts on is controlled by the Regional Options language setting on your computer. With the  English (United States) setting, the calendar week starts on Sunday.
# On the Windows Start menu, click Control Panel.
# Click Date, Time, Language, and Regional Options.
# Click Regional and Language Options, and then click the Regional Options tab.
# Under Standards and formats, do one of the following:

    * To start the calendar week on Sunday, click English (United States).

If you just change the setting, save the changes and restart the computer.

so there is an update to this question. in fact, the problem is with the monthly view of the calendar, not the weekly view. any ideas now?
