Microsoft has sent out an important update that fixes an issue in Outlook on Windows to solve problems within the Calendar on the app. Specifically, calendars were showing incorrect timeslots and meeting schedules.

According to Microsoft, the problem in Outlook on Windows was possibly caused by low screen DPI or dot density.

In a blog post, the company offers the following explanation and fix details:

ISSUE

After user selects multiple calendars in the Calendar pane, they may notice the incorrect timeslot/meeting is selected when they click on a meeting while viewing multiple Calendars. Calendars where the user has Full Access (which are not automapped) may display incorrectly.

Potential causes include:

  • Low screen DPI, or Outlook is not maximized and the window is relatively small in size.
  • A calendar was added or selected in Calendar pane.
  • Both non-working hours and working hours are shown in the same view.

The issue has been fixed in the latest Microsoft 365 current channel release for December 13th:

STATUS: FIXED

This issue is fixed in Current Channel Version 2211, Build 16.0.15831.20208. It was released to Production on December 13th, 2022.”

Elsewhere in this update, Microsoft is also fixing other security vulnerabilities found across the Office Suite, including OneNote and Visio. There are dozens of flaws this Microsoft 365 update is addressing.

Tip of the day: After years of hefting a laptop around, you inevitably build up a menagerie of Wi-Fi networks. For the most part, they’ll sit on your PC, hardly used, but at times a change in configuration can make it difficult to connect to a network your computer already remembers. At this point, it can be beneficial to make Windows forget a Wi-Fi network and delete its network profile.
