Who has time to waste during the business day? Certainly not me or you either I bet.
Most times in an office setting your e-mails generally go to the same folks several times a day. It is inefficient to have to enter that address over and over, even with the AutoComplete feature!
If you send frequent e-mails to the same person, this tip could be a real boost to your efficiency!
Follow the steps below to learn how to create a desktop shortcut for sending messages:
- Right-click your desktop.
- Select New | Shortcut.
- In the Create Shortcut dialog box, key in: mailto:emailaddress (using an actual e-mail address). Do not enter any space characters between the mailto: component and the e-mail address.
- Click Next.
- Enter an intuitive name for your e-mail shortcut.
- Click Finish.
To use your new shortcut, simply double-click it. MS Outlook or your default e-mail client will open a mail window and fill in the To field using the address you provided when you created the shortcut.
Key in your message and send!
