Part 1. Getting Acquainted with Outlook 2003 > Using the Outlook Menu Bar

Using the Outlook Menu Bar

Click a menu name in the menu bar (in this case, File).

The menu opens, displaying a list of available commands. Click a command to execute it, or click outside the menu to close the menu without making a selection.

INTRODUCTION

The Outlook menu bar lists the commands you can execute within Outlook. When you want to perform a particular action in Outlook, you select the appropriate command from the menu bar. For example, to print a message, you open the File menu and select the Print command. In this task, you'll explore Outlook's various menus.


TIP

Command Not Available?

If a command in a menu is colored gray, that command is unavailable. For example, the Paste command in the Edit menu is grayed out until you cut or copy text to be pasted.


Clicking a command followed by a right-pointing arrow opens a submenu containing additional options. For example, click New to choose from the various new items you can create.

Clicking a command followed by an ellipsis opens a dialog box containing various options. For example, clicking Print opens the Print dialog box. Make your selections in the dialog box and click OK.
