Learn how to leverage the power of Microsoft Outlook to stay on top of all your important connections. In this course, author Jess Stratton introduces you to navigating your email messages, calendar, and contacts in Outlook 2013. The course begins with a tour of the interface and shows how to connect to a wide variety of mail, social media, and cloud computing accounts, including IMAP and POP accounts, Facebook, LinkedIn, and even RSS feeds. Jess also shows how to quickly create, send, and read email and reduce your inbox clutter; organize, group, and share contacts; and stay on schedule with calendars and tasks.
We've gone over lots of settings you can change to make Outlook work for you. Just in case you want to see all the other options you have, let me show you how to get to it to find the Options screen. To get to Options, click on File and go down to Options. Now you're in the Outlook Options screen and you can do all sorts of things. For example in the General tab, you can change the Office Background, even the Office Theme. These are going to change things like the picture that you see in the top right hand corner of Outlook. In the Mail tab you can set things like Always check your spelling before sending an email message.
In the Calendar you can set your Work hours, you can even add an additional Time zone on your Calendar. You can also toggle that weather bar on or off or change the degrees to Celsius or Fahrenheit. In the People tab you can change things like showing user photographs when they're available. And in Tasks you can do things like changing the Overdue task color. Finally, in the Advanced tab you can even change what folder you want Outlook to start in. For example it always goes to the Inbox.
You can click on Browse and change it to something like Contacts. You can also have it automatically empty your Deleted Items folder every time you leave Outlook. When you're all done, click OK to get out of the dialog box. So I encourage you to go through and take some time to familiarize yourself with all the things that you can change in Microsoft Outlook 2013.
