Adjust the Outlook 2010 Calendar Time Scale for Ultra-Fine Calendar Control
Normally Outlook 2010 divides days and weeks in the Calendar into 30-minute increments. But it doesn’t have to be that way. With the Time Scale option, you can adjust the size of the time blocks in these Calendar views to be as long as an hour, or as short as 5 minutes, although I hope for your sake you don’t need that fine of control for your days. Whichever case describes your situation, here’s how you adjust the time scale of the Calendar.
Adjust the Time Scale of the Calendar
To change the Time Scale Outlook 2010 uses when displaying day and week views in the Calendar, follow these steps:
- Navigate into Calendar view and select one of the Day or Week views (any one of these will do).
- Click the View tab on the ribbon to see the View options.
- Click the Time Scale option (located in the Arrangement group) to see a menu of the time increments you can select.
- Select the increment you want to use. The Calendar instantly changes to reflect your selection.
