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:

No. Outlook View Hotkeys
1 Mail 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

    Outlook 365 does not allow "dock the peek" calendar in the mail view if using IMAP. Major failure of the software.

      Yup, that is exactly what is going on with us. 'Dock the peek' is greyed out so we cant select it, and we really want to have it on our outlook main display.
