Outlook 2007 – How to set the Folder View as the default view?

A user called because she wanted Outlook to automatically open to the Folder View (Go > Folder View) instead of the Mail tab.

When opened, Outlook 2007 should default to whatever screen was last open when Outlook was closed.

If it is not doing this, make sure Outlook is not still running as a background process after closing it– check the Task Manager. Some programs and background processes will keep Outlook open after you think you’ve closed it, thus preventing it from saving its settings (or something like that).
