At the end of the Time Zones area, we have available the Swap Time Zones button. What does this button do? It changes the order of the Time Zones that we want to be displayed. In my example above, if I press the Swap Time Zones button once, the Australia Time Zone will be displayed first, the Daughters Time Zone second, and the Blank One Third. If we press the Swap Time Zones button again, the order of the Time Zones will change again. Whatever adjustments we do, once finished we must press the Ok button at the bottom right corner of the Outlook Options dialog box for the adjustments to take place.

Another way to Swap the Time Zones is for us to Activate first of all our Calendar, and then select the View tab and from the area of the ribbon named Arrangement we select the Time Scale command. Once the Time Scale command is selected, the drop-down menu appears where at the bottom is located the command Change Time Zone. If we select the command, the Outlook Options dialog box appears, with the Calendar category activated where we just follow the same procedure as described above.
