If you have a preferred view that you use in Project Professional that is not the Gantt view, it gets a bit tedious to change the view every single time you open the application. The easiest thing to do is to change the default view setting so that your preferred view is displayed when the application is opened.

To update the default view used:

  1. In Project Professional, click File, Options, General
  2. Under the Project View section, click the Default View dropdown and change the value to the desired view (highlighted below)
  3. Click OK to apply the change
