One Day Two Day Red Day Blue Day

Everyone who knows me has heard me say, "if it's not on my calendar, it doesn't happen in my life." I'm a slave to my calendar. Because I have a lot going on, I can't memorize things days in advance. Sometimes, I'm happy to just know what's happening tomorrow, forget about three or four days from now. But, there are times I need to look further ahead than just one day.

You may already be familiar with some of the built-in views for your Outlook calendar:  Day, Work Week, Week, Month and Schedule view.
While all are nice, I want to view only two days. The easiest solution is to switch to Day view. Now press Alt+2. Want three days? Press Alt+3. In case you're wondering, yes, Alt+4 will show four days. You can use this method all the way up to Alt+0 for ten days.

If you leave your calendar view as such, you'll notice that the next day, your current day is always the first day listed in the view and you consistently look forward how ever many days you choose.
