    Outlook 'small' calendars (2003)

    In Calendar view, I have the navigation pane with the small calendar(s) at the top left of the main pane. At one stage I saw two "small" calendars (2 months) and no message like Open a Shared Calendar.... Now I see only one small calendar and the "open shared calendar..." and some white space. How to get my two small calendars back? I tried all sorts of views, help, "For Dummies.." etc but no reference. Any suggestions?

    Is this what you are after? Put your cursor on the bottom border of the thumbnail calendar until you get the crossbar cursor (two horizontal bars with up and down arrows from the top and bottom bar, respectively - what the heck is that cursor called?). Click and drag the border down until your second thumbnail calendar appears.

    Re: Outlook 'small' calendars (2003)

    That would be logical. The problem is that I don't get that cursor choice. Only at the far bottom (and left and right) of the navigation pane. If I drag the right boundary of the nav pane to the right, I get 2 mini calendars next to each other, not the one below the other as I had originally, and what I want to restore. Any other suggestions?

    Can you attach a screen shot, shrunk down to a reasonable size for 800 x 600 display. I'm not sure what you show now in your Calendar window.

    This is the picture as it is now. What I wanted (and had before) was two small calendars below each other and almost no white space.

    Ah. Were the thumbnails previously on the right hand side instead of the left? I can't get two thumbnails on the left side, but if I select View |Taskpad, I can get one one or more on the right side. (I can get a bunch of them by playing with borders as I explained earlier.)

    I see, yes opening the taskpad on the right lets me adjust the borders and the number of calendars. However at one stage I had these two on the left and no taskpad on the right (to save space). I probably have to live with it then?

    Re: Outlook 'small' calendars (2003)

    <img src=/S/scratch.gif border=0 alt=scratch width=25 height=29> I'll see what I can figure out (now that my view is all messed up! <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>) ... I'm a light user of tasks, and two thumbnails on the left would be nice. Any other Loungers know how to get multiple thumbnails on the left of the View?

    Re: Outlook 'small' calendars (2003)

    Hold the phone. If I remove all my team calendars from Other Calendars (now I'm REALLY messed up), I get two thumbnail Calendars on the left. I think it's a matter of available space in that left side window. Try this: in the screenshot you posted, to the left between the 14th and 15th days, drag that border bar, the blue one, with the dots, on top of the Mail icon, down. Your various view bars will all become iconized the same way your Folder View, Notes View, and Shortcuts Views are now, but it may pop up the second thumbnail. (I routinely run all those views iconized along the bottom.) Does this help?

    Re: Outlook 'small' calendars (2003)

    Sadly, when I restore all the other Calendars, I don't have room for the second thumbnail. <img src=/S/weep.gif border=0 alt=weep width=21 height=16>

    Re: Outlook 'small' calendars (2003)

    It is even better: I want large icons for the tasksI do most: mail, calendar and contacts. So by fiddling the Outlook screen's bottom border and the divider border in the navigation pane, I can get the best of both worlds: 2 calendars below each other and large buttons for the most important tasks. Thanks again.
