Join Jess Stratton for an in-depth discussion in this video Touring the Outlook interface, part of Outlook 2013 Essential Training.
It can be a bit overwhelming to see all the features of Outlook all at once.…So right now, I'm going to break it down clockwise into all the individual…pieces that make up the application.…It's also great to know what the right terminology is for each piece, so if you…need more help, you can look it up in the Help file quickly, because you will…know what you are looking for.…So let's start right at the very top, up here we have what's called the…Quick Access toolbar and it's called that because it's always visible and it never changes.…So if you have items that you need to get to quickly, you can put them up here…and they'll always be there.…
Immediately under that we have what's called the Ribbon; now this feature is…located in all the Microsoft Office products. What this is, is a tabbed list of…menu options that changes according to what you are in, so that you can find the…right tool for the right job.…For example, if you're in your mail, you're going to have a different list…of menu options, when you are in your calendar, and again, when you're in your contacts.…
