Do you set follow-up reminders by dragging your email message over the Tasks folder? Or perhaps you create tasks from scratch? (CTRL + 4 followed by CTRL + N)

If so, you might want to display your To-Do list for, say, the week ahead.

Here’s how:

  1.     Switch to Tasks, as normal. (For example, press CTRL + 4.)
  2.     Click in the Search box in the top right hand corner or press CTRL + E.
  3.     Select the relevant period from the Start Date or Due Date button, depending on what you specified when you created the task.

If you did not find what you were looking for, click on the Try searching again in All Task Items link at the bottom of the search results page.

With thanks to Kate for this week’s tip inspiration.
