Google offers lots of useful, and free, Web tools that you can use from anywhere -- with Internet access being required at only some points to save data to the cloud. The best part about these services is that you can customize many of them to your preferences, like Google Calendar.
Suppose you don't want to load your calendar to the monthly view every time you open it. What if you want to only look at the next two to three days at a time, and not the whole week? If you find yourself resetting your calendar view every time you log in, you can save yourself a little time by adjusting a quick setting to make your preference stick. Here's how:
Step 1: Log in to your Google Calendar.
Step 2: Click on the cog in the top right-hand corner and select Settings from the menu. Make sure you're on the General tab of the Settings area.
Step 3: Next to Default view, select Week, Month, Custom View, or Agenda. If you chose Custom View, you'll be able to set a range of days in the next drop-down menu below this one.
Before you leave the page, make sure you click Save or your changes will be lost.
