How to switch between schedule view and vertical view in Outlook calendar?

Author: Siluvia Last Modified: 2014-11-26

In Outlook 2010 and 2013, you can switch the vertical to schedule layout when you select 5 or more calendars and will switch back to the vertical view when only one calendar is selected by default. If you have three calendars in your Outlook and you want to display them in schedule layout, you can switch between schedule view and vertical layout manually or automatically with the following article shown.

Thank you! I could not understand why my new work computer would suddenly switch to a horrid landscape view when I added a fifth person's calendar, and then wouldn't switch back until I only had my own calendar shown. It was far enough down the options for my not to have spotted it. Normal service is resumed now, and I'm much happier!
