I love Windows 7 (and Vista, so shoot me...) but I always have felt the borders of windows are a bit too thick. Luckily you can change this!1. Open Start Menu2. Search for 'metrics'3. Select 'Change window colors and metrics'4. In the Item: drop down, select 'Border Padding'5. From here you can adjust the size. I like to use '2' but you can drop it down (or up) as much as you want.6. Enjoy.
If you use the Office 365 Business or Office 365 Enterprise editions, you can connect Outlook to over 750 other apps and streamline even more email workflows. For example, you can send new emails you get from a specific sender to Slack or create a new Trello card for new emails sent to a specific Outlook folder. See all the Office 365 integrations available on Zapier or use one of the workflow templates ("Zaps") to get started right away:
If you’ve had success with the previous Outlook tips and are interested in getting into more advanced email management, it’s time to take a look at Quick Steps. Quick Steps allow you to automatically perform long strings of actions based on a trigger. Say at the end of the month you receive a series of invoices from vendors or contractors. Your normal process is to review the invoices, forward the invoices to your accountant, and create a reminder to follow up with the accountant a week later to make sure the invoices were paid. Quick Steps can take care of the last two steps for you with fewer clicks than if you performed the tasks manually:
If you spend a lot of time typing the same answers to questions you get repeatedly, create Quick Parts to insert that text into email replies in just a few clicks. No need to keep typing the same thing over and over again or having to find an old response to copy and paste. When you’ve finished typing a response that you expect to need to send again, follow the steps below to save the text as a Quick Part:
Unfortunately, not all emails in the workplace come with an unsubscribe link. Day after day, emails arrive in your inbox that are just a distraction. Some common examples include:
Taking time off is wonderful until the moment you open your email after returning to work. If you work in an email-heavy company, you may have received hundreds of emails while you were out of the office, and now you’re faced with the difficult task of sorting through each one. With Outlook’s clean-up function (introduced in Outlook 2010), you can drastically reduce the number of emails you have to deal with in just a few clicks—whether you're coming back from vacation or you just have too many emails piled up. The clean-up function removes all email replies that are duplicated in a later thread, allowing you to read a single thread instead of dozens of individual emails. To clean up your inbox quickly:
Some emails don’t require an immediate response, but they do need to be handled before the time you have scheduled to review items in your to-do folder. These items can still be moved to your to-do folder so they’re not clogging your inbox, but you’ll want to make sure that you have a reminder to take care of them before a deadline. Create a reminder by adding these emails to Outlook’s task list:
The help command does not provide help for all cmd commands but any command suffixed by /? can display detailed information about the particular command’s syntax. The help command may not be the best and coolest trick, but it is one of the most useful command lines. To know more about the cmd command,
Type in: /? ahead to any command as a suffix
Many times we come across cmd commands that cover the entire page while displaying the results. The command lines like dir command produce so much information that is so difficult to understand and seems useless. For such times, you can always use the command and follow it with the pipe character and then more command.
For instance dir /s | more.
This will generate thousands of lines of results, but using the More command will pause each page’s result with –More– at the bottom. Now, press Spacebar or press Enter to advance by one page or one line at a time.
