The other day, i received the following note from a friend who uses Outlook to manage his mail, contacts, tasks and calendar; and also happens to travel quite a bit in between:-):
Hey, don’t know if you saw that the Outlook calendar is now shipping a tiny weather widget that displays the current conditions on a predefined city / location. Was wondering whether there is some setting or configuration that will allow me to hide that weather bar in my Outlook calendar as i find it a bit distracting. Any pointers are appreciated
Yep, one of the new features introduced in Outlook 2013 is the display of a simple weather conditions forecast in your calendar header. For me, that’s quite a nice feature, as it saves me a time to lookup weather forecast conditions in Accuweather, Weather channel and so forth. That said, removing the bar from Outlook is pretty straightforward fortunately.
The weather section comes enabled by default, however, if it happens to be disabled in your installation, you can add it back quite easily.
All you’ll need to do is to proceed as indicated above. he only difference is to check the “Show weather on calendar” check box, and that will do the trick for you.
