+ 0 Votes Start Up in Outlook 2010 christianshiflet 3 years ago Are you referring to the folder that Outlook starts up in (Inbox, Sent Items, Outlook Today,...)? If so, check out http://www.technipages.com/outlook-2010-disable-outlook-today-startup-page.html for how to change that setting. If not, please clarify a little and I will take another shot.

If so, right-click on specific folder (Inbox?), select Properties, click on the Administration tab and alter the "Initial view on folder" option. I hope that helps. Let me know. Thanks. + 1 Votes Try this... mike.lowry 3 years ago I think I had the same issue. When the ribbon is minimized, it looks like the file tab is default when you open the message. When you click on the Message tab it looks like you are changing tabs but you are actually just 'unminimizing' the ribbon. Try leaving the ribbon unminimized and see what happens. + 3 Votes Yes, the Ribbon IS minimized in this view terry.floyd 3 years ago I have had the same problem. When reading a message, the File tab was the default and I had to click on the Message tab to see the ribbon. I then noticed that on the upper right side of the window there was a down arrowhead "\/". I clicked on this arrow and it immediately changed to an UP arrowhead "/\" and the full ribbon reappeared! I realized I had simply "unminimized" the Ribbon!
