It appears that this might not be possible from here: Can you remove the date navigator from the Outlook 2013 To-Do bar?
Basically I want to keep the To-Do bar for my tasks and would like the calendar appointment list itself to show up. But I have no need for the date navigator itself.
Anyone know of a way to get this functionality back? Or at least just provide this functionality even if it isn't with the To-Do bar. I understand that this functionality was available in Outlook 2007, but it appears that 2013 did away with this?
