Sometimes it’s the little things that you bring to the table that really makes all the difference in the world.  Recently I overheard a client of mine discussing the need for him to have holidays on his Outlook 2010 calendar. Since I’ve already been down this road before, I immediately jumped up to show him little known Outlook 2010 secret (shhhh…no 3rd party plugins required to show holidays!)

Here’s how you add holidays to your Outlook 2010 calendar:

  1. Click File
  2. Options
  3. Calendar
  4. Then click on the “Add Holidays” button
    1. If you are using the US version of Office 2010, the US Holidays box will already be checked
  5. Click OK to add US Holidays, or check the appropriate box for the regional holidays you are interested in and then click OK when done.
