Taking a Note
Taking a Note
How often do you need to take a quick note in the course of a busy day? (A lot,
I bet.) If you’re working in Outlook, you can take a quick note with these steps:
1. Press Ctrl+Shift+N.
2. Type your note.
3. Press Esc.
In just a second, your note is stored away for future reference in your
Outlook Notes module.
You need to be in Outlook for this to work, but you don’t need to be in Notes.
It doesn’t take long to amass quite a large collection of items in Outlook —
which can then take a long time to browse through when you want to find
one specific item. Outlook can search for items at your command if you type
the name of what you’re seeking in the Search box at the top of every screen.
That starts a quick search so that you can get to what you want in a flash.
Undoing Your Mistakes
If you didn’t know about the Undo command, it’s time you heard the good news:
When you make a mistake, you can undo it by pressing Ctrl+Z or by clicking the
Undo button on the Quick Access toolbar in the upper-left corner of the screen.
So feel free to experiment; the worst you’ll have to do is undo! (Of course, it’s
better if you undo your mistake right away, before you do too many things.)
Using the Go to Date Command
You can use the Go to Date command (as shown in Figure 21-2) in all
Calendar views. If you’re looking at the Calendar, for example, and you want
to skip ahead 60 days, press Ctrl+G and type 60 days from now. The Calendar
moves forward 60 days from the current date.
