Using Folder Pane/Peek feature for quick Outlook previews

new for microsoft office 2013The Folder Pane and the Peek feature provide quick and convenient ways to open your email, calendar, contacts, and tasks. One of the new features in Outlook 2013 is the ability to peek at the details of the other Outlook objects such as Calendar, Tasks and Email.

This is great for those times when you just need a quick overview of what’s going on and not the whole kitchen sink.
