By default, Outlook appointments, meetings, and all-day events appear in the Appointments section of the To-Do Bar.

Double-click any item in the appointment section to open it. You can also click an item, and then use the Calendar Tools commands that appear on the ribbon.

To turn on or off the appointment section, do the following:

  1. On the View tab, in the Layout group, click To-Do Bar.

To view more appointments in the Appointments section, hide or reduce the size of the other To-Do Bar parts. To change the number of appointments shown in the To-Do Bar, do the following:

  • Point to the bar between the Appointments section and Task List. When the pointer changes, drag up or down to increase or decrease the size of the Appointments section.

    When you release the mouse button, the number of appointments increases or decreases to fill the available space.

To change the information that is shown in the Appointments section, do the following:

  1. In any Outlook folder, on the View tab, in the Layout group, click To-Do Bar, and then click Options.

  2. Under Show Appointments, select or clear the check boxes of the options that you want.
