I have a customer that has multiple monitors.  On one of the monitors, she like to keep her Outlook calendar and opens the calendar by right clicking and selecting "Open in New Window"  from within Outlook.  the issue is, every time she opens the new window, she has to select all the shared company calendars one by one.  If she accidentally closes the calendar, she has to reselect all the calendars.

Is there a way to make the selections persistent when opening in a new windows?  BTW, when opening Outlook, all shared calendars are selected.  The issue is only when opening in a new window.

Outlook does its job right, because she opens one particular Calendar. This is why Outlook deselects others. Just tell her to Open another Outlook instance by clicking its icon in the task bar while holding SHIFT button down. This way Outlook will keep the previous Calendar selection.
