  • If this is not a programming question it's out of scope for this group. User questions belong in a different forum. However, there is no setting to pick which tab is opened as the default from the user interface.

  • Office 2010 has a new group of ribbon interfaces: ActivateTab(), ActivateTabMso() and ActivateTabQ(). You can call ActivateTab() with your tab id to set it as active.
     
    You do need to invalidate the ribbon before the ActivateTab() call will work.

  • Geez Ken thanks for your kindness. If you can program Outlook I would assume that you know how it works. Sorry to bother you with my unworthy question. Didn't mean to insult you by asking a question that is so below you, after all I know you are a MVP.  Sorry to waste your time.

     

    To the others who tried to help thank you very much

  • I tried to answer your question, and to point out that it was posted in the wrong forum. The answer was there is no user setting for what you want.
     
    If that's not good enough for you, so be it.
