When Outlook 2007 opens up the Tasks Pane, the initial view is the To-Do List. This is something that I would like to change as I use the Tasks list instead... I believe that there is a registry entry that would let me change this behavior so that instead of the To-Do List showing up initially, it would show the Tasks view instead..

thanks

2. Click on Task on the left pane->Drag and drop it over the To-do list and check

that moved the " Tasks" so that it is above the " To-Do List" , however the initial focus is still on the to-do list...

Im willing to try anything...

You can use a filter to show only tasks in the To-do pane but i don't recall a reg hack to use the task folder by default.

how can i apply the filter?

Well, that is how Outlook is designed. The To-do list will be displayed by default when tasks are opened.

You'd add Date completed = does not exist to the filter on the Advanced tab.

Isn't the To Do list a list of tasks anyway with the default set to Active Tasks?

Why not change the view to a List view that shows all tasks?

Diane,

many thanks as you have been very informative.. one last question is that if i combine the advanced filters:

" message class contains IPM.Task" with " date completed does not exist" then all of the tasks in the to-do list disappear. am i not combining the fileters correctly?
