Outlook Calendar: How to View Consecutive and Non-Consecutive Days

By standss Friday, May 21st, 2010

Do you use your Outlook calendar to plan and manage your day? Here are a few quick tips to see several days at the same time on your calendar. These tips work on all versions of Outlook from Outlook 2000 to Outlook 2007

Viewing any number of consecutive days
Need to see your appointments for the next 2 days (or 4 days or 6 days).

This is a SUPER EASY tip… it doesn’t even need a picture or step-by-step instructions. Simply go to your Calendar and press ALT and the number of days you want to see. For example, press ALT+4 and Outlook will show you 4 days side by side.

Viewing any number of non-consecutive days
What if you need to see your calendar for days that are not one after another. Easy…

  1. Go to your Outlook Calendar. You should see a thumbnail view of the current view either on the left or right hand side depending on your version of Outlook.

  2. Click on the first date that you want to see.
  3. Now press and hold the control (CTRL) key on the keyboard and then use the mouse to click on all the other dates that you are interested in. If the date that you are interested in is not visible, you can change months by clicking on the little arrows on the thumbnail calendar.

Hopefully these two tips have made it a little easier to get organized.
