Task 2 How to Set Up Notes for the First Time

The very first time you open Lotus Notes, you might encounter the Setup screen instead of the Welcome page. This screen helps you set up the Welcome page so it is most useful for the way you work. The screen also lets you find information on what is new in Lotus Notes 6, in case you were familiar with a previous version.

1.
Look at the Setup Screen

The Setup screen has two options—one to customize the Welcome page and one to view the new features in Lotus Notes 6. Click the number of the option to begin. Click the check mark icon if you don't want to use either option and plan to accept the standard Welcome page as it is. The Welcome page appears.

2.
Create a New Welcome Page Style

Click 1 to open the New Page Wizard. Enter a name for your new Welcome page style. Then, click Next.

3.
Select a Personal Page

The easiest way to create a new Welcome page style is to use the Personal Page settings. Select I Want Personal Page. Then, click Next.

4.
Select a Page Layout

Select a prefilled page layout that has the elements you want on your Welcome page style by clicking the picture. To see a larger version of the picture and details about what features the page layout includes, click the Enlarge Selected Layout link. Click Next.

5.
View Your Welcome Page Style

When the Congratulations message appears, click Finish to see your new Welcome page style.

6.
Find the Setup Screen Again

You can go back to the Setup screen later. Click the Click Here for Welcome Page Options arrow at the top of the Welcome page. Then, click the Return to First-Time Setup button.
