Notes That Are a Drag

Monday, November 6th, 2006 by | Filed Under: MS Office Help, MS Outlook

Notes That Are a Drag

Do you use MS Outlook’s Notes feature?

Ever have text in another program that needs to be in a note? What do you do?

Do you copy the text, go to Outlook, open a new note and then paste the text?

That’s not a bad idea. It certainly beats retyping all that text.

But, wouldn’t it be nice to do all this just a little bit faster?

Yeah, I knew you’d agree. After all, who doesn’t like to save time?

So, here it goes.

Obviously, you’ll need to have Outlook running.

Now, highlight the text that needs to be in the new note.

At this point, it’s a matter of a click-hold-and-drag of the highlighted text to the Notes feature in Outlook.

(If you don’t have the program windows side by side, then simply click, hold and drag the mouse pointer over to the Outlook program in the Windows Taskbar. Outlook will take the focus on your screen and you can continue your text drag to the Notes feature).

A new note opens with your text in it.

Voila! No copying, no pasting. Just a simple drag and drop!
