View Outlook Inbox and Calendar at the Same Time

Would it be useful for you to be able to view both your Outlook calendar and inbox at the same time? Instead of clicking back and forth between the two, you can open them side-by-side for easier access and viewing.

To enable this tip follow the four steps below:

  1. Close all other programs.
  2. Click Inbox on the Outlook Folder List to display the Inbox. (If the Folder List is not displayed, choose Folder List from the View menu.)
  3. Right-click Calendar on the Folder List, and then click Open in New Window on the shortcut menu.
  4. Right-click an empty area of the Windows taskbar, and then choose Tile Windows Vertically from the shortcut menu. Alternative, you can resize the Calendar and Inbox so they can fit side by side on your screen.

Note: When you shut down for the day, quit Outlook by choosing Exit from the File menu. This way, your settings are saved, and the next time you open Outlook, the calendar and inbox windows will open side by side.
