Outlook Is Backwards?

imageI installed Office 365 on my new laptop this week and did not give it another thought… until I went to start booking travel for my upcoming trip. I went to click on Monday and realized it was not where it was supposed to be… everything was backwards. It was a little confusing, and I spent a few minutes trying to figure out why Monday was not where it was supposed to be!

It was not only the sidebar calendar either… the main window was the wrong way as well.


Initially, I thought it might have been because I installed a Hebrew keyboard, but I had not installed the Hebrew calendar in Outlook, so that probably wasn’t it. I scratched my head. I have no idea what I did to make this happen.

No matter, I don’t really need to know how it happened. I had two choices… I could either get used to my week being backwards, or I could figure out how to fix it. Here is the solution:

1. Open the File Menu and select Options.

2. In the navigation pane, click Advanced.

3. In the main window, scroll down to the section called Right to Left.


4. Switch the option to Left to Right.

That’s it! I don’t have to get used to things being backwards, and I can continue booking my travel comfortably.

I hope this helps!
