Re MS OutlookIs it possible to create a different global

Customer Question

re MS Outlook
Is it possible to create a different global format setting (other than the factory default setting) for all directories within MS Outlook?
Every time I open a new directory, I have to go through the fairly laborious process to create the following settings:
1) change "view" to turn "reading pane" off
2) change "arrange by" to turn off " "Show in groups"
3) change field chooser to insert "to" between "from" and "subject" which are part of the default setting
It would be great if I could set my own standard setting but there appears to be no such option in "control panel"

Thank you!

1) change "view" to turn "reading pane" off
To turn it off, Get into the Inbox folder and click View > Reading Pane > Off
2) change "arrange by" to turn off " "Show in groups"
To do this, On the View tab, in the Conversations group, select Show as Conversations check box.
3) change field chooser to insert "to" between "from" and "subject" which are part of the default setting
This you cannot change sorry
If you would like any additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know.
Else if you can take a second to rate my service by clicking one of the stars at the top of the screen then submit, that would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you

I am fully aware of this and I do it every time I open a new directory. The point of my question is whether there is some way that I can create this as an automated default setting to be in place every time I open a file rather than having to change the factory default every time.

Expert:  Richard replied 1 year ago.
No sorry, there is no default setting for this.
