I am running Outlook 2007 on Windows XP professional. I want to create an additional shortcut so that I can open Outlook in the Notes view. I want to maintain my existing shortcut for outlook which opens in the Email view.

I don't believe its possible - there is a list of command line switches at http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/outlook/hp012185891033.aspx
but there is no option to do what you require
