Outlook grouping header changed

Hi,

This is really trivial in the grand scheme of things, but it is really bugging me!

Some errant clicks (which I don't know how I managed) seem to have altered the Outlook grouping headers and I cannot find the option to revert them.  

Originally, the grouping headers would read 'Today', 'Yesterday', 'Last Week', etc.  Now they all have 'Date:' prefixed to those titles, e.g. 'Date: Today', 'Date: Yesterday' and so on.

Does anyone know how to change that back?  I know it makes no really difference, but it's just really irritating me!  :)

TIA

M.

Hi,
you could try to close Outlook and start it using the following parameter:

outlook.exe /cleanviews (just type this command in "Start - Run" and execute it)

ATTENTION: This will reset all your outlook views back to default (including headers etc.)

Hi ezekielseyes,

Unfortunately, I've tried that!  I did some digging after I posted here and found that command, but it didn't help.  The grouping headers still have the prefix for some reason.

OK, sussed it!  The steps and settings to change are as below:

1) View => Current View => Define Views
2) <Current View Settings> => Modify => Other Settings
3) Check box - 'Use compact layout in widths smaller than' - deselect this
4) Radio button - 'Always use compact layout' - Select this

Job done!  Very happy and much less irritated!  :)

I've awarded point to ezekielseyes as that suggestion is a valid step in resolving faults like this, just not this one in particular.
