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!
