When Outlook 2010 loads for one of my users, it always loads the 'Shortcuts' Navigation Pane view (the Ctrl-7 view).

She asked me to duplicate for another user - but I can find no way to make the Shortcuts Pane be the default when loading Outlook.

Windows 7 / Outlook 2010.

I haven't had any problem with this.  Once you set the option for the folder to open when Outlook opens (File/Options/Advanced/Outlook start and exit), then open Outlook and put that folder on the Shortcuts menu. Click on the Shortcuts menu so that the folder is open from Shortcuts.  Close and then reopen Outlook and it should automatically go to Shortcuts.

Aha.

When Outlook closes, you must have
1) the default folder listed as a Shortcut
2) that folder active
3) Shortcut Navigation Pane active

It then 'remembers' the Navigation Pane setting, and restores it on load.
