- [Instructor] This is a tip I use all the time.…Someone sends me an email and asks if I'm available…on a particular day, or when we could have a conversation.…I need to go to my calendar.…Maybe I need to look at some dates in October.…So, I'm going to switch over to my calendar.…Go to Calendar, and then move forward to October,…and I'm looking at a particular date,…then I go back to my inbox, I read that mail again,…I go back to my calendar and my calendar…is back to the current date,…because that's how the calendar works.…
Each time I fire it up, it shows me information about today.…To avoid this, the easiest thing to do is,…when I'm in Mail to begin with,…I can open the calendar in a new window.…Simply right click the calendar, open in a separate window.…Now I'm going to take my calendar forward into October.…Here's my October calendar.…I can switch back on the task bar to go back to my inbox,…or I can use Alt-Tab, and just jump right back there,…and if I Alt-Tab again, I'm back in my calendar.…
Note, I'm still in October,…
