Many people keep to-do lists—on paper, in a spreadsheet, or with a combination of paper and electronic methods. In Outlook, you can combine various lists into one, get reminders, and track task progress.
- Open Outlook, and on the Home tab, in the New group, choose New Items.
- Choose Task, fill in the task form as needed, and then choose Save & Close.
Keyboard shortcut: To create a new task, press Ctrl+Shift+K.
