You can create an Outlook shortcut using the switch to select the folder.  That path might vary depending on which version of Office & Windows you have.

For Windows 7 32 bit:
"C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office15\Outlook.exe" /select outlook:calendar

Open in new window


For 32 bit Office 2013 on Windows 7 64 bit, it would be:
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Office\Office15\Outlook.exe" /select outlook:calendar

Open in new window


My PC matches the second scenario. I created a shortcut to outlook using that line & it did open Outlook 2013 directly in the calendar.
