Chapter 1. Getting Started with Outlook > Customizing Outlook Today

Customizing Outlook Today

The Standard layout for Outlook Today is a three-column design: one column for your Calendar, one for your Tasks, and one for your Mail. You can choose to display these views in a one-column or two-column layout. The Standard two-column layout displays more of your Calendar and positions your Mail and Tasks vertically on the left side of the page. The Standard one-column layout displays the three views horizontally: Calendar, Tasks, and Mail. If you like a two-column layout, you might want to apply one of the preset backgrounds. Select the Summer layout for a warm, pale yellow background or select Winter for a clear, crisp white background for the Outlook Today page.
