Sometimes you'll feel the need to just scribble something down quickly on a note. Maybe it's not appropriate to create a Task or a Calendar item for it or even send an email. You just want a quick place to write it down. In Outlook, Notes is the place to do that. In the Navigation pane, click on Notes. And here you can make notes, and these are the virtual equivalent of sticky notes. To create a new note, you can click on the New button in the toolbar, or you can right-click in the Reading pane and choose New Note, or just double click on a blank area of the Reading pane, and it will pop up a new note.
Then just type in whatever it is you like to jot down. You can leave your note open as you move around throughout the application, or even into other applications. Notice down on the Taskbar, this note is opening its own window, and it will stay there so I can leave it open and my notes will stay down there and I have access to them even when I'm in another application. When you're done writing a note, simply click the "X" to close it.
Whenever you close a note, it will save any changes you've made. And to go find it again, just go into the Notes. Here's the note I already had, and my new note. Up on the toolbar, there are some options to view the notes in different ways, so you can view them as Large Icons, Small Icons, or on a List. Also, in the Navigation pane under Current View, there are some other options. You can also view them in a Notes List. You can say "Only show me notes I've made in the last seven days" which can be very useful to only see the recent ones or view them by Category.
