Join Jess Stratton for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating notes, part of Outlook 2013 Essential Training.
Notes in Outlook 2013 is an electronic version of the classic yellow post-it note.…You can use them to quickly jot questions or reminders and even leave it on the…screen where you can see them conveniently even if you have Outlook minimized.…To get into Notes click the three dots (...)…in the Navigation Bar and choose Notes.…I can then click New Note from the Home ribbon and it actually creates a little…yellow post-it note.…I can type my reminder and when I'm done, I can click the header to slide it…around anywhere I want on the screen.…
Even if I have Outlook minimized, it will still stay on my Desktop, but it's…important to note that if I close Outlook it will go away.…I can close out of it at any time by clicking the X at the top right-hand corner.…It doesn't delete it, it just closes it.…And if I want to delete it, I can highlight my note and select Delete.…I can create another note wherever I am in Outlook, even my Inbox by hitting…Ctrl+Shift+N. I can then type it again and move it around wherever I want.…
