So, you know about Ctrl + N in MS Word—it gives you a new blank document based on the Normal template.
And Ctrl + N in Excel gives you a new blank workbook.
Plus—surprise, surprise—Ctrl + N in PowerPoint or Access will open the dialogue box for new presentation or database (respectively).
The next thought that comes to mind (at least my mind) is 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 email but 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 email and hit Ctrl + N you’ll get a new email.
In the Notes section you’ll get a brand new note ready for your input, in the calendar you’ll get a new appointment.
I’m sure you get the idea.
Ctrl + N—the multi-purpose keyboard command!
