In Depth Information
The To-Do Bar summarizes tasks and appointments.
The Work Area
The remainder of the Outlook screen is the work area. This area displays a wide variety of
information depending on what you are doing in Outlook. It’s here that you’ll read email messages, view
your appointments, and so on. Use of the work area is covered in later chapters that deal with
specific aspects of Outlook functionality.
Resizing Screen Elements
Many of the elements on the Outlook screen can be resized. For example, you can make the
navigation pane larger, but only at the expense of making the work area smaller. To resize an
element, point at the blue line that separates it from another screen element — the mouse pointer
will become a 2-headed arrow. Then, drag the border to the desired position. If you point at a
border and the mouse pointer does not become a 2-headed arrow, it means that you cannot resize
at that location.
