Microsoft Outlook Tips and Tricks How to Change the Default Time Increment
By default, the calendar built into Microsoft Outlook breaks your day up into one hour increments, with each of those hours broken up into convenient half hours. While those time increments may be suitable for the majority of tasks, there are times when it would be more convenient to reckon your day in 5, 10, 15 or 20 minute increments instead.
Fortunately, Microsoft Outlook allows you to change the time increments used on your calendar. Changing the default time increment can help you get more out of every day and allow you to get more done.
Changing the default time increment in Microsoft Outlook is an easy task. To do so, just follow these simple steps.
1. Open Microsoft Outlook
2. Click on the Calendar tab
3. Right-click on one of the days in the calendar
4. Select Other Settings
5. Go to the Time Scale option and choose the increment you want to use
You can reset the time increment used by Microsoft Outlook any time you wish by simply following the steps outlined above. That can make Microsoft Outlook more useful and more user friendly.
