- [Voiceover] One way to work smoothly in Outlook for Mac…is to use multiple windows,…even if you have only one monitor.…As we move from one of the Outlook applications…to another and back,…the state of that application resets each time.…For example, I'm in my inbox right now,…but I'm going to go to my calendar.…And I would like to look at a specific date, July ninth.…and I'm looking at July ninth…because I'd like to know if it's available…and I want to go back now…to the email that I was looking at and then come back…and look at my calendar again.…
This is something that we do all the time,…go back to Mail, come back to Calendar,…but notice when I come back to the calendar,…I'm now back in May.…And if I want to go to July, I need to go there again.…Each time I switch to an application,…it automatically resets itself.…This is how it behaves.…Let's try this instead.…Instead of clicking the Calendar icon while we are in Mail,…let's choose File,…New,…Main Window.…
Now I have two windows…and I can switch to the calendar in this window.…
