If you're a multitasker, this next tip is for you--especially if you have multiple monitors on your desk. I find this invaluable when I'm writing an e-mail to tell someone dates that I am available for training, or when I want to bring up my contacts without losing my place in my e-mail. Ready to see how easy this is? Right-click on any of the Outlook navigation buttons, such as Calendar, Contacts, or Tasks in the lower-left corner. Choose Open in New Window, and that's it. With the new window open, you can move it around, drag it to a second monitor if you have one, minimize it, maximize it, or anything else you like.
When you're done with the window, just close it using the X in the upper-right corner, although I usually leave these two open for the entire day. And don't forget, the Alt+Tab shortcut lets you switch between active windows. Now let's move on to tip number 3.
