Chapter 2. Running Outlook > Choosing Windows Settings

Choosing Windows Settings

To use Outlook properly, you should make sure that certain Windows settings are set correctly:

  • Your monitor should have a resolution of at least 600×800 pixels to display Outlook's Information viewers and forms.

  • Outlook depends on your computer's real-time clock (RTC) to properly date- and time-stamp items, so you must make sure the clock is set correctly.

  • You should also ensure that Windows Regional Settings is correct, so Outlook uses appropriate date and time formats. Having the correct regional setting is particularly important if you send messages to, and receive messages from, time zones other than your local time zone.

  • When setting Windows Regional Settings, check Automatically Adjust Clock for Daylight Saving Changes if that's appropriate for your region. Also, within Outlook Calendar options, make sure the Adjust for Daylight Saving Time setting matches the setting in Windows Regional Settings.
