Join Gini von Courter for an in-depth discussion in this video Customizing the Navigation pane, part of Outlook 2013: Tips, Tricks, and Shortcuts.
…We already know how to customize a lot of the outlook interface, but…there are some areas we haven't explored yet.…And whoa!…What are those great big words down here at the bottom of our navigation pane?…Well, this is one of the options for how the navigation pane appears.…Up till now we've been using the compact view.…If I click, on the menu button, and choose Navigation Options, and…turn Compact Navigation back on, it will look, like it's looked all along.…But I might like to have those great big words there to help me out.…
Whether I use the words or…I use the compact icon based view, I have to decide the order of these items.…Now this is the default order and it's not bad.…I like Mail, and Calendar, and People and Tasks.…Actually I prefer my tasks to be before people, and…if I'd like to do that here I can simply move it up in the list.…If I turn compact navigation back on, I probably would have room for…five things ro include notes, leaving folders and…short cuts to be accessible from the menu only.…
