Creating Your Own Menu

Creating custom menus in Outlook is a funny feature you can use to create groups of the options that you use most often, and then plug them into the menu you name and use yourself.

Attaching Business Cards to All Outgoing Messages

In some situation you may want to send your vCard in every message. This lets recipients enter the information in their address book quickly and without errors.

Grouping items in a view

If Outlook's built-in arrangements don't provide the view you need, you can create your own grouping levels by customizing your view.

Modifying a default view

Any of Outlook's default views can be modified to suit your needs. You can customize the fields displayed, sorting, grouping, filtering, fonts, and other formatting options.

Using AutoCorrect

Outlook, like other Office applications, supports AutoCorrect - a feature that allows Outlook to correct common spelling and typing errors and to replace characters with symbols. You also can use AutoCorrect as a shortcut, which means you can type a small string of characters and have those characters replaced by a longer string.

How to customize your Navigation Bar

You can easily customize Outlook layout by changing views, removing some buttons or changing the order on the Navigation Bar. You can also change the order of the Outlook views on the Navigation Bar.

Show or Hide Enhanced ScreenTips

By default, Outlook shows document tooltips (or screentips) when you hover on a button, but this option can be turned off.

Outlook Auto-Archive folder

AutoArchive in Outlook moves old items to an archive. You can customize it for more comfortable using of Outlook.

Conditional formatting

Usually Outlook users are using folders to organize messages, but you can also use colors. For example, you might apply a special color to all messages from a particular person. You can then see at a glance which messages are from that person.

Adding and Removing Columns

By default, Outlook displays only a small subset of the available fields for messages. You can add columns for other fields, such as CC or Sensitivity, to show additional information.
