Outlook Calendar Shows Dates in Reverse

I recently worked on a computer with Office 2016 installed and the calendar was showing the dates in reverse order (as per image below). I checked all possible Windows and Office language settings and only English US was installed and configured/Enabled. However Outlook had the settings for Right to Left languages configured. If you experience a similar issue follow the steps below to change Calendar formatting back to normal.

  • Open Outlook
  • Click on the File Menu (top left) and Select Options. 
  • Select Advanced on the left hand side menu and scroll down to the Right to Left heading. 
  • Tick Arrange panes left to right for right to left languages and the two Left to Right radio buttons as per the image below and click Ok
  • Restart Outlook and the calendar should now show dates in the correct order
