This is not a desperate problem, but an annoying one. I don't know how the settings changed, and I can't figure out how to fix it.
Ordinarily when I would open up the calendar in Outlook, it would look like this: left hand pane with one or two small month calendars on top - task bar for other Outlook features on the bottom; on the right in the large portion of the screen would be displayed today's date, or another day if I had chosen that date; in the top toolbar are icons for choosing views, i.e., day, week, etc. (there are only two panes displayed)
Instead what started happening yesterday when I open the calendar I see three panes: left hand pane with two tiny calendar icons that say next to them "calendar" and "calendar in archive folders;" there are no monthly calendars; there's a long blank sections; and there's the task bar for other Outlook features on the bottom. In the center pane is a list of events or appointments showing a recurring event icon, the name of the event, the start, the end and the recurrence pattern. In the left had pane is a description of the selected event from the center column.
I've never seen this view before and don't know how I got it. What did I click?
In order to get my ordinary view back, I click the box next to "calendar in archive folders" and that calendar opens. Then I can click the box next to "calendar" and the two calendars (day view) are opened side by side. Now I can uncheck the archive calendar and go about doing what I ordinarily do with my calendar.
Now if I click tasks, or email or any other operation and then come back to my calendar again, I have the unwanted view and have to go through the same steps again.
What can I do to fix this? I am using Outlook 2003.
