This video shows you how to navigate the Calendar in Microsoft Outlook 2010.
Navigating the Calendar in Outlook 2010: Overview
To open the calendar and display a specific date using the Date Navigator, open the Calendar folder. Then use the “Previous Month” and “Next Month” arrows in the “Date Navigator” to move through the months until the date that you want to select appears. You could also click on the month heading itself that appears in the Date Navigator to select from either the three previous months or three next months which appear in a pop-up menu.
After selecting the month, just click on the specific day within the Date Navigator that you want to display in the Calendar window. In the Date Navigator, the current day will always appear with a red box around it.
You can also select a specific date using the “Go To Date” dialog box. If using Outlook 2010, click the “Go To Date” dialog box launcher in the lower right corner of the “Go To” group on the “Home” tab in the Ribbon. If using Outlook 2007, select “Go| Go to Date…” from the Menu Bar to display this dialog box. This will launch the “Go To Date” dialog box from which you can select a date from the drop-down date navigator at the right end of the “Date:” text box. You can also select a display view for that date from the drop-down arrow list at the right end of the “Show in:” text box. Then just click “OK” to jump to that date with the display that you selected.
After having moved to a different day, if you want to return to the current day in the Calendar folder, you can click the “Today” button in the “Go To” group on the “Home” tab in the Ribbon in Outlook 2010, or in the Standard toolbar in Outlook 2007 when the Calendar folder is displayed.
