Possible to Open Outlook Twice?


M

magmike

Using Outlook 2007 & Windows XP

I know I have done this in the past, but likely on different versions/
OS, but I would like to be able to open Outlook twice so I can have
Tasks open in one and email on the other, so it would be easy to ALT
+TAB to alternate between the two.

The other issue is (which is why I would like to do this), is that the
view in Tasks resets when I switch over to email in the same window
and then switch back, which is getting annoying.

Does anyone have any input on this?

PS: In case you are listening, Microsoft, Tabbed views for Outlook
would fix this issue.

Thanks in advance,
magmike

Diane,

Since SP3 of OL2007you can still open several windows, but cannot have them
open automatically at next OL launch. May be intentional, according to a MS
gentleman (see close subject : "Reopen previously closed windows in Outlook
2007").

Right click on the tasks folder and choose open in new windows.

(You can open multiple outlook windows but not multiple outlook profiles.)

Luckily, I only have SP2, and therefore, when I open Outlook (as long
as I closed it this way) both the inbox and tasks now open in their
own windows. ;-)
