- [Instructor] Or don't start in Outlook Today.…How do you decide where Outlook should start?…Well, it's an option.…Go to File, choose Options,…click Advanced, and here are the start and exit options.…I just chose Outlook Today.…By default we start in the inbox,…but some of us would prefer to start in the calendar.…You can choose wherever you would like to begin.…The other option here is an exit option.…And remember I told you that you had the possibility…to empty your deleted items folder…each time you exited Outlook.…
That would be right here.…Turn this on, and each time you close Outlook,…your deleted items folder…will automatically be cleaned out for you.…If you don't wish that, turn it off.…Now that I've set Outlook to start in the calendar,…I'm happy, and I'm going to click OK.…The next time I start Outlook,…it will automatically go to my calendar.…
