- [Instructor] If you moved Outlook 2016 from Outlook 2007 or Outlook 2010, you may wonder what the heck happened to the To-Do bar. It still exists but in a more limited form, and you saw some of it earlier. If I want to display the To-Do bar, what I'm really displaying are items that appear in my calendar peek and my task peek, but one way to do that is to go to View, to choose To-Do Bar, and to turn on the peeks that I want to see.
There's my calendar peek, there's my tasks peek, and I can even display the people peek if I wish, and it will show my favorite. Isn't this great? If I want to remove specific items, I could take, for example, the people back out, and if I want to remove the peek, I can simply click to remove it, or return to the To-Do bar and turn it back off here. This is not as customizable as it was, but it's still a nice feature.
If you find yourself longing for a To-Do bar, then either go to the view menu, or go to the navigation bar and dock some peeks.
