How to show and disable calendar peek view in Outlook?
You may have noticed the magic peek views in Microsoft Outlook 2013. In this article, I will show you how to show and pin the peek views, and how to disable the peek views in Microsoft Outlook 2013 easily.
Office Tab: Enable Tabbed Editing and Browsing in Office, Just Like Chrome, Firefox, IE 8/9/10.
Classic Menu: Bring Old Menus and Toolbars Back to Office 2007, 2010, 2013, 2016 and 2019.
Show the peek view of Calendar: move mouse over the Calendar or Calendar icon at the bottom of Outlook, it will pop up the peek view of Calendar. See screen shot below:
If you need to dock the peek view of Calendar, just click the dock button at the top-right corner of peek view, and the peek view will display in To-Do Bar as soon as possible. See screen shot:
Some Outlook users may not like this peek view, and think of them annoy. However, it seems no easy way to disable the peek view from Outlook directly. Here I will introduce a trick to disable the peek view of Calendar in Microsoft Outlook 2013.
Step 1: Click the ellipsis at the bottom of Navigation Pane, and then select the Navigation Options from the popping up menu.
Step 2: In the Navigation Options dialog box, change the Maximum number of visible items to 1, keep the Mail first in the Display in this order box, and click the OK button.
Then you will see all buttons or text are hidden except the Mail at the bottom of Navigation Pane. In this case, it’s impossible to view the peek views of Calendar, People, Task, etc.
Note: In the case, users can’t switch Outlook views with clicking the Calendar/People/Task at the bottom of Navigation Pane directly. Alternatively, hotkeys are easily ways for you to shift Outlook views:
|1||Ctrl + 1|
|2||Calendar||Ctrl + 2|
|3||People||Ctrl + 3|
|4||Tasks||Ctrl + 4|
|5||Notes||Ctrl + 5|
|6||Folders||Ctrl + 6|
Apart from the hotkeys, you can also switch Outlook views with clicking the ellipsis at the bottom of Navigation Pane > Calendar/People/Tasks
