Tame your computer – get up to date

14 Jun

There are various ways to display a specific date in Outlook’s calendar. You probably use the Date Navigator (the posh name for the date picker on the right hand side in the To-Do bar). You might even know that you can click and drag your mouse pointer over two or more consecutive dates that you want to view or compare or click on each date while holding down the CTRL key to select two or more non-consecutive dates.

But what if you know what date you want to jump to?

Here’s how:

  1. If necessary, open the calendar. (CTRL + 2, anyone?)
  2. Press CTRL + G.
  3. Type the date you want to jump to. For example, 12/6, tomorrow, next week, next month, Christmas, Valentine’s Day … In short: no need to use the drop-down button in the dialog box.
  4. Press ENTER or click OK.

Click on the Today button on the Home tab or simply type today in the Go To Date dialog box to display today’s date.
