If you are a multitasker, this next tip is for you, especially if you have multiple monitors on your desk. We can make Outlook show us our Inbox and our Calendar or any other part of Outlook in a separate window or on several monitors. I find this tip invaluable when I'm writing an email to somebody to let them know the dates that I am available for training, or when I want to bring up my Contacts list without losing my place in my email. Ready to see how easy this is? Just right click on any of the tabs within the navigation area and choose Open in New Window. And that's it.
With a new window open, you can move it around the screen, maximize it, restore it or even minimize it. When you're done with that extra window, you can close it, although I usually leave my Inbox and Calendar open for the rest of the day. And don't forget, the Alt+Tab shortcut lets you switch between active windows. Now let's go ahead and move on to Ttip number 3.
