A reader asks:
How do I apply my custom view to all of my folders?
Answer: Outlook doesn't support applying a view to all folders at once, but if you customize the default view for the folder type, it will apply to all of those folders.
1.Before customizing the view, open Outlook using the /cleanviews switch. If you don't, the new view won't apply to folders that were previously customized. Note that it will wipe out all custom views you are using.
To use the switch, close Outlook and at Start menu, Run, type outlook.exe /cleanviews
2.Next, open the Define views dialog. In all versions, Define views is at the bottom of the Views selector on the Advanced toolbar, or browse for it on the Views, Arrange By or Views, Customize menus.
3.Select the default view by name, not the
4.Select the Modify button and make changes to the view. Close when finished.
The next time you open a folder or create a new one, the folder should use your new customized view.
