Ready for your first tip? Let's find a contact, fast. If you've got a contact located in any of your Outlook Address Books or the public Address Book, you can pull up their contact card right away. Located in the Toolbar of the main Outlook screen is the Search address books feature. Just click here and type a partial or full name, like Nicole, and press Enter. Immediately Outlook searches the Address Books for the name that you entered. As a shortcut key you can also press F11 instead of using the mouse.
Notice what happens when I type Rebecca. Outlook prompts me to be more specific. By the way, you can press Escape to quickly close an Outlook Contact and return to the previous menu. I hope you found that quick tip to be useful. Let's continue to the Top 10. Up next, working with multiple windows.
