Like Yosemite Sam, this week’s Tuesday Tip is short and to the point. I’ve said this before and still believe it to be true: email is arguably the number one application that is used in the business world and when it’s running slow or not working, there’s trouble a’brewin’!
By about mid-morning I find that as I’m sorting through and replying to emails I’ve inevitably got 8-10 open and active on my desktop. At some point I want to declutter my desktop of open emails. So this week’s tip is a quick time saver that I learned a few weeks ago from Jason, one of our engineers.
Instead of laboriously closing email one at a time, there’s a button in the Outlook toolbar that will close all open emails at once.
You’ll find it under the ‘View’ Tab in the Outlook toolbar and then all the way over to the right. ‘Close All Items’
When you click this, Outlook will close all open emails and leave Outlook running – now why didn’t I think of that? This feature can be found in the same location whether you’re running Outlook 2010, 2013 or 2016.
See? Short, to the point and a nifty time saver if you’re like me and have been closing every open email when uncluttering your desktop.
