Chapter 3. Working with Project Options > Setting the View Options

Setting the View Options

The options on this tab of the dialog deal with how Project displays items in the interface. Only the Default View, Date Format, and the Show sections deal with applicationwide options. The rest of the options on this page are specific to the currently open project.

Setting Default View and Show Options

To get to the Options dialog, you must first click on the Tools menu and then select the Options item. This opens the Options dialog. Click on the View tab.

The Default View options define which view will be onscreen by default when Project is opened. Use this option to change the default if you commonly open a project and immediately switch to another view.

The Date Format field is important because it defines how Project displays dates within views.

The Show section of the dialog allows you to control whether Project displays various common screen elements.

The only option here that can be confusing for some users is the Windows in Taskbar box, which controls whether Project displays a new window icon on the Windows Start bar for each open project file. Some users find this distracting and choose to uncheck this box.

Most users leave the other boxes in this section checked, although unchecking the Entry bar and Status bar boxes can clear more screen space for data.
