Neat Outlook Hack

16 Jun

We all have moments when we remember things that we need to write down, or else we might forget! Further we all want to track things like To-Do Lists, and such. This is a neat hack for those moments.

Essentially the trick is to quickly mail yourself reminders.

In MS Outlook, press "CTRL+SHIFT+S". A new post window will open up. Type in a subject (e.g. To Do List), and type in the text that you want. Once you are done, press "Post" (or CTRL+S or ALT+S) to mail it to yourself!

For small reminders, just type them in the subject & Post!

The really cool thing about this is that the post is editable! This comes in really handy when you are trying to plot out a project, or doing something requiring a number of steps. And of course for the To Do Lists, which can be edited as you go through the day!

Do try it out & revert with your feedback on the same.

    Hi,
    I was not aware of this cool feature. Thanks for pointing this out. I would like to add that the note will saved to the currently open mail folder. CTRL+S saves the note but keeps the editing window open. ALT+S will save the note and close the editing window.

    Hi,
    I was not aware of this cool feature. Thanks for pointing it out. I would like to add something which I found out in my testing. CTRL+S will save the note but keep the edit window open. ALT+S saves and closes the edit window. By default, the note is saved in the currently open mail folder.
