Get a New One

So, you know about Ctrl + N in MS Word, right? It gives you a new blank document based on the Normal template.

And Ctrl + N in Excel gives you a new blank workbook.

It seems that in the MS Office Suite, Ctrl + N is all about a “new one,” but what does Ctrl +N give you in MS Outlook?

After all, just in case you haven’t noticed yet, there’s a ton of stuff included in MS Outlook.

It’s got the usual e-mail, but it also has task lists, sticky notes, a calendar, a journal, contact, etc.

So, the question must be asked, “What exactly will Ctrl + N do in a program that has so much”?

The answer is really quite simple.

Ctrl + N will give you a new item for whatever part of the program that’s currently active.

For example, if you’re in your e-mail and you hit Ctrl + N, you’ll get a new e-mail.

In the Notes section, you’ll get a brand new note ready for your input and in the calendar area, you’ll get a new appointment.

I’m sure you get the idea.

Ctrl + N: the multi-purpose keyboard command!
