Script error when opening Outlook 2013

Print Friendly

I was recently working on a completely unrelated issue, and someone asked “while I’m talking to you, can you look at this?” They opened Outlook 2013 on their computer and were greeted by a Script Error. I hadn’t even seen Outlook 2013 before this (I skipped the Office 2013 preview last year!), but I was pretty quickly able to figure this one out.

I don’t have Office 2013 in front of me right this second, but I believe the steps were very similar to these:

  1. Right click on your account name / email address on the left side of the screen.
  2. Click Properties.
  3. Click on the Home Page tab.
  4. Uncheck boxes for Outlook today – you want Outlook to open straight to the Inbox.

These steps may not be precise, but they should be close. My instructions will be refined once I get a personal copy of Outlook 2013 – comments for clarification are always welcome!
