Working with Notes in MS Outlook

Dennis Faas's picture

Of all Outlook features, notes are by far the easiest to use. The following explains how to create notes.

You can create notes in the Notes folder. To open this folder, click the Notes icon on the Outlook bar. After you have opened the folder, follow the steps below to create a note:

  1. Right-click in the Notes folder and choose New Note or simply double-click in the folder window. Either action opens a blank note window.
  2. Type your note directly in the window.
  3. Click the Close button in the upper right corner of the note window to close and save it.

Outlook uses the first few dozen characters in the note as the title and displays it under the note's icon in the Notes folder.

When you click a note to select it in the Notes folder, Outlook displays the entire note contents under the icon so that you do not have to open the note to read it.
