There is a little monthly calendar in Outlook where you can click on a date and then it will open up your calendar at this date. This is very useful to me but when nearing the end of the month, it is becoming less useful as less future dates become visible.
Is there any way that I can view more months?
Making Outlook to show more monthly calendars within the Date Navigator depends on the version of Outlook and where you are seeing them.
To show more months in the To-Bar use;
- Outlook 2007
Tools-> Options-> tab Other-> button To-Do Bar…
- Outlook 2010
File-> section Options…-> section Advanced-> button To-Do Bar…
You can configure it to show up to 9 months but it will push off any other information that might be showing under it.
When using the Calendar Navigation and having the To-Do Bar or TaskPad (see below) turned off, the amount of months showing in the Navigation Pane depends on the amount of space that is left there. If you already have maximized your Outlook window, then you could increase space by minimizing the Navigation Panel at the bottom by dragging it down.
In Outlook 2003 and previous, you can enable the TaskPad in your Calendar via View-> TaskPad. This also has a Date Navigator. To show more month here, simply drag the TaskPad down to create more space and an additional month will appear.
