I'm cant set org-agenda to start a week on other day that isn't sunday.

    What have you tried? The variable org-agenda-start-on-weekday looks appropriate

  • There are many methods. To persist across sessions, do M-x customize-variable [return] org-agenda-start-on-weekday or put (setq org-agenda-start-on-weekday 6) ;; saturday in your init.el

In your emacs startup file -- maybe ~/.emacs -- put

(setq org-agenda-start-on-weekday 1)

and this will set it to Monday. It will become active the next time you start emacs. If you want to activate it immediately put the cursor behind the trailing ')' and type C-x C-e -- evaluate preceding S-expression.

    Note that 0-6 is Sunday-Saturday.

As @ebpa comment set variable set custom variable via: M-x customize-variable and then org-agenda-start-on-weekday to set the day.

Also you have other methods.
