    Save view (2003)

    After transferring my pst file from one machine to another, it seems to have lost its memory!
    PROBLEM: On my previous machine, when I opened Outlook, it went to the layout that I am used to: Outlook Today, with the Folder pane open and the folder tree open at all inbox sub-folders.

    Now when I open Outlook, it just opens at Outlook Today but the folder tree collapsed at 'Personal Folders'. Is there some way I can 'save' the view I want so that Outlook returns to it on opening?

    Thanks for any help,

    Phil.

    Does the following help?
    - Select Tools | Options...
    - Activate the Other tab.
    - Click Advanced Options...
    - Click Browse...
    - Select your Inbox folder.
    - OK your way out.

    Thanks for your prompt reply.

    No, I have tried this. I have attached some screenshots to demonstrate.
    Screen 1 is the view I want (and got before moving the file)
    Screen 2 is the view that your suggestion gives me
    Screen 3 is the view that I get after moving the file.
    Surely there is some way of making the last view 'sticky'?

    Regards,

    Phil.

    Try the following:
    - Activate Personal Folders (Outlook Today)
    - Click 'Customize Outlook Today'.
    - Tick the check box 'When starting, go directly to Outlook Today'.
    - Click 'Save Changes' to return to Outlook Today.

    Sorry, screen 3 is wrong. It should be this one:

    Sorry, I have no further ideas. In my experience, Outlook 'remembers' which parts of the folder tree are expanded. I hope someone else will have a useful suggestion.
