Make iGoogle Your Startup Page in Microsoft Outlook

If you are a Microsoft Outlook user that regularly uses iGoogle as your dashboard, have you ever thought about combining the two? It's nearly trivial to add your iGoogle page to Outlook and make it the startup page.

Create a new folder by right-clicking anywhere in the folder tree and choosing "New Folder"

Give the folder a relevant name, something like iGoogle works.

Now right-click on the new folder and choose Properties, and then on the Home Page tab, check the box for "Show home page by default for this folder" and put this into the address box:

http://www.google.com/ig

Of course you can use any web page as your startup page, not just iGoogle.


At this point you should be able to see your iGoogle page by just clicking on the folder.

Set iGoogle as the Default Startup Page

Open up the Options panel through Tools \ Options on the menu, and then choose the Advanced Options button on the Other tab.

You'll see a setting for "Startup in this folder" with a Browse button next to it. Click that button and choose the iGoogle folder as your startup page.

Now when you startup Outlook, you'll be taken directly to your iGoogle dashboard (you do have to login the first time).

Lost Outlook.pst files


If you happened to backup your pst files, you can restore them. Here is a knowledge base article from Microsoft on the subject:

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/287070

If you do not have a backup copy, you could try doing a system restore to a time before they were lost. System restore must be enabled on your computer to do this. Make sure to save and/or backup anything recent before doing this. To do a system restore in XP, go to Start, Programs, Accessories, System Tools, System Restore. Then select a date that is available for restore and roll back to then.
