1. Open the VBA window (Alt+F11).
2. In the Project Explorer (press Ctrl+R if you don't see it) drill down to "Project...|Microsoft Office Outlook Object|ThisOutlookSession"
3. Right-click ThisOutlookSesion and select "View Code" from the context menu.
4. Paste in the attached code.
5. Save your work and close VBA

Now, whenever Outlook is started up it should open the To Do Bar.
Private Sub Application_Startup()
Dim myOlExp As Outlook.Explorer
    Set myOlExp = Application.ActiveExplorer
    myOlExp.ShowPane olToDoBar, True
    Set myOlExp = Nothing
End Sub

Open in new window
