    Hi folks,

    I'm hoping this is an easy fix for someone but i just cannot find out how this is done!

    I have a user who is using MS Outlook 2000 who is trying to create a link on his desktop to his Outlook calandar.

    He assures me that this is possible as "his mate" has it on his desktop but cannot remember how it was created.

    Does someone know how to do this as i'm struggling to find out.


    Many Thanks

    Yes it is possible.

    Create a shortcut on the desktop something like:
    "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\OFFICE11\OUTLOOK.EXE" outlook:calendar

    What will change is the exact location where you have Outlook.exe. This is for Outlook2003

    You can also change "calendar" with "contacts" and it will now be a shortcut for your contacts.
