    Disable the To-Do Bar permanently

    Diane, I just installed Office 2013. In Outlook 2013, the To-Do Bar works as it should: that is, when you turn if off, it STAYS OFF!!! Even when you toggle from 'Reading' mode to 'Normal' and back again. Sounds like everyone was afraid to say that Micro$oft could have made a mistake...

    Disable the To-Do Bar permanently

    So unbelievable! I can't believe that Microsoft programmers don't have the intelligence to disable the To-Do bar in Outlook 2010 permanently. What in God's name does the To-Do bar have to do with the 'Reading/Normal' pane when displaying a message??????????????? Not a darn thing...

    Disable the To-Do Bar permanently

    Okay, I'll use the Alt+F2 fix for now. You realize the way it should work is: I should be able to toggle the view from 'Reading' to 'Normal' (using the lower-right icons) without the To-Do Bar ever showing it's ugly face! I'll await a Reg. hack. Thank you, again, Diane.

    Disable the To-Do Bar permanently

    Diane, Alt-F1 only toggle the Folders Off/On. It has no effect whatsoever on the To-Do Bar. Likewise, Ctl-F1 only toggles the Ribbon On/Off. It also has no effect whatsoever on the To-Do Bar. After all, that's what this thread is all about.....getting rid of the To-Do Bar. I hope you can...

    Disable the To-Do Bar permanently

    Thanks, Diane. This issue has been driving me up the wall. When I want to expand the message to read it, then go back to 'Normal' view', the To-Do Bar always re-appears. If the programmers designed it that way, why would there be an 'Off' option in the 'View' tab??? Doesn't make any sense...

    Disable the To-Do Bar permanently

    Diane, Think about what you said. If there is a setting in the View tab in Outlook to turn off the To-Do Bar, why in God's name would its re-appearing be 'by design'. Come on now, you can do better than that! Tom

    Disable the To-Do Bar permanently

    If I wanted to add more effort (keystrokes) to my Outlook experience I wouldn't have bothered with the post. I would simply turn the To-Do Bar off after I read every message sent to me. This is not an option. How hard should it be to turn off permanently the To-Do Bar? Tom

    Disable the To-Do Bar permanently

    I'm using Outlook 2010 64-bit in Windows 7 Ultimate. I've tried turning off the To-Do Bar by changing the To-Do Bar setting to Off in the View tab. However, when I change from 'Normal' view to 'Reading' view (in the lower right corner of Outlook), or vice-versa, the To-Do Bar re-appears. The...
