Windows 7 Clock and Dates

Finding a date in Windows 7 is super easy – you just click the clock on the Taskbar and you get an easy readout of the month. And clicking the arrows moves on to the next (or previous) month…. but did you know that if you click on the name of the month…it goes back in sequential steps to show the whole year and even whole decades?

Return back to the present date by clicking the current date across the very top of the window.

Calendar and Mail Windows

If your work day means you are constantly in Outlook switching between, say, Inbox and Calendar, there is another way to do this.

  1. Let’s say you have the Inbox open, right click on the Calendar button on the left, in the Navigation Pane.
  2. Select “Open In New Window”.
  3. The calendar opens in a completely separate window which can be maximised, and you can now switch between both by using the buttons on the Task Bar at the bottom of the screen or by using Alt + Tab.
