    When I print the calendar, the "organizer's name" appears. How do I delete that field from showing up on the printout and screen?

    1. Diane Poremsky

      Sorry, you can't remove the organizers name.

    Do you know how to change the Outlook calendar name display from 02 2014 to February 2014? It also displays this way on the date navigation pane. This is Outlook 2010 and it used to show the month name and year, but it just changed to the numerical month and year today. Thank you!

    1. Diane Poremsky

      That is controlled by the long date format in windows control panel - the screen size can affect it too. if outlook is squeezed into a small window, the names will be shorter than the long date format. Screenshots are here if you need them: How to change the Calendar date format.
