Working with notes is one of the easiest tasks in Outlook. Notes are little more than text files, and creating a new note is as easy as creating a file with Notepad or WordPad. Outlook opens an empty window when you start a new note, ready for your text. You can easily edit a note to change its contents or add more text. Finally, when you don’t need the note anymore you can simply delete it.
Click the Notes icon on the Outlook Bar to open the Notes folder.
Click New on the Standard toolbar to open a new note window.
