Chapter 14. Touring with Outlook > Outlook's Personalized Menus and Toolbars

Outlook's Personalized Menus and Toolbars

A few years ago, Microsoft began adding features to Office and other applications to help the software adapt to the way you work. It's called IntelliSense—software that senses how you work and adapts to your style. Office supports IntelliSense features, personalized menus and toolbars, just as Word does. In a nutshell, Outlook's menus and toolbars keep track of which features you use most often and give them a prominent place. Features used less often (or not at all) gradually slink out of sight.

Start Outlook so that you can see some of this functionality in action. With Inbox displayed, click View in Outlook's main menu. Notice the double arrows at the bottom of the View menu, as shown in Figure 14.1. This tells you that additional commands are hidden at the bottom. If you leave the View menu open for about five seconds, it automatically expands. To see the additional choices even sooner, click the double arrows.
