View Outlook Inbox and Calendar at the Same Time
Would it be useful for you to be able to view both your Outlook calendar and inbox at the same time? Instead of clicking back and forth between the two, you can open them side-by-side for easier access and viewing.
To enable this tip follow the four steps below:
- Close all other programs.
- Click Inbox on the Outlook Folder List to display the Inbox. (If the Folder List is not displayed, choose Folder List from the View menu.)
- Right-click Calendar on the Folder List, and then click Open in New Window on the shortcut menu.
- Right-click an empty area of the Windows taskbar, and then choose Tile Windows Vertically from the shortcut menu. Alternative, you can resize the Calendar and Inbox so they can fit side by side on your screen.
Note: When you shut down for the day, quit Outlook by choosing Exit from the File menu. This way, your settings are saved, and the next time you open Outlook, the calendar and inbox windows will open side by side.
Voice of the Editor
Which isn’t completely true. I mean, occasionally I drop by when I manage to sneak out of the nonstop frat party over at Going Concern, but I’m mostly a wallflower over there. I’m happy to say that I’ve been given express permission (or explicit orders, if you like) to wander over here to AccountingWEB more often.
Why is that, you might ask? My job is to replace the irreplaceable Gail Perry as Editor-in-Chief. What does that mean? I don’t really know! I think it’ll be fun getting a feel for things, throwing in my own thoughts here and there, and listening to the discussions you’re having about the accounting profession.
