Join Gini von Courter for an in-depth discussion in this video Resetting a view, part of Outlook 2007: Effective Email Management.
Microsoft Outlook comes with a number of built-in views, and we've just created…a new view called My Workgroup.…We did that by modifying the Messages view and then saving a copy.…Unfortunately, when we modified the Messages view, it now has exactly the same…attributes that My Workgroup does.…It's a filtered view as well, and sorted in a particular fashion.…I'd like to get my old messages view back.…I can do that easily with any built-in view in Microsoft Outlook 2007.…
With the view that I want selected, all I need to do is right-click any of the…column headings and choose Customize Current View.…At the bottom of the Customize View dialog box, there is a button that says…Reset the Current View.…So I'm going to reset the current view.…It says, if you do this, you're going to lose your customization. Yes, that's fine.…We've already saved that customization under another view name.…I'm going to say OK.…Say OK to apply the current view, and my old messages view is back, just as it was before.…
I can also go to View > Current View > Define Views to access all of the views…
