Prior to my recent OS reinstall, I used Task Manager to open Outlook with the "/select outlook:calendar" switch.

Now I set it up again but cannot figure how to apply that switch … will only open to Outlook.

I do have a shortcut to Outlook with the open to calendar switch that works.

How to fix?

Thanks, six

BTW, is there any place where Task Manager items are saved?

Go to Run and put this command to make sure that it is working fine :
outlook /select outlook:calendar

Then you can put it in the shortcut TARGET properties after the outlook's path as follow :
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Office\Office14\OUTLOOK.EXE" /select outlook:calendar

@Scorpion99, Somehow that did not work. Is what I have been trying. But I did find this:

Open Outlook --> File Tab --> Options --> Advanced --> Browse --> Select Folder --> Calendar --> OK --> OK.

From “http://smallbusiness.chron.com/customize-outlook-start-calendar-open-28813.html”

thanks for your reply.
