Outlook on the Desktop
Gain easy access to Outlook with Outlook on the Desktop

In the days of desktop calendars it was quite usual to have a calendar permanently on display. This not only made it quick and easy to enter new appointments when necessary, but also to check what was happening in the days and weeks ahead. With the move to digital calendars such as Outlook, it is easy to lose your calendar under a sea of windows. This is something that Outlook on the Desktop aims to address, ensuring that your Outlook calendar is never too far away.

As you’ve probably guessed from the name, this is a program that adds your Outlook calendar directly to the desktop. This means that when you need to check what is planned for the week ahead, all you need to do is press the Windows key and M to minimize all open windows and you’ll be able to see in a flash. All you need is a copy of Outlook 2003 or later and you’re good to go.

The benefit of using this app rather than sticking with working with Outlook in the more traditional way is that while your calendar can still get buried, getting it back it just a keyboard shortcut away. To prevent the calendar from being too distracting if you are the sort of person that makes extensive use of the desktop for other things, the opacity of the app can be adjusted to give a slightly more faded and subtle look.

Outlook on the Desktop really does provide you with a complete, customizable Outlook window integrated into the desktop. As such, anything you can do in Outlook, you are now able to achieve from the desktop. You are not restricted to viewing the calendar; you can also switch to your inbox, contacts and other sections of the app. There is support for drag and drop, and a system tray icon provides access to even more options.

What's new in 3.6.0? (see complete changelog for more):

- Now has a single installer for both 32-bit and 64-bit office, which should reduce confusion quite a bit
- Uses .NET Framework 4.7.1 for additional performance and HiDPI improvements.
- Uses a delayed scheduled task for running OotD on startup, which should reduce startup errors when trying to load Outlook prematurely.
- Updater now shows release notes properly formatted.

Verdict:

A great way to access Outlook without the need to constantly switch windows – a real time saving tool.

Windows 10 October 2018 Update (build 1809)

Free Full Commercial Software

This is the latest version of Windows October 2018 Update. it's a media creation tool that can be used to upgrade an existing installation of Windows or create installation media for another PC. Just make your choice after launching the tool and it'll do the rest.

What was new in Windows 10, when it was released? The OS brought back the Start Menu, though with a Windows 8 twist: live tiles keep you up-to-date with the latest news while also providing an easy way to launch apps. (Don't worry if you prefer the Start Screen, it's still there and you can boot into it if you prefer.)

Apps now work much more like regular desktop programs. They have minimise, maximise, restore and close buttons, and can be resized (to a degree) and organised however you like.

If you've still lost track of a program in the mass of open windows, a new Task Spaces feature can help. Click its taskbar button and you'll see thumbnails for everything running now, a little like OS X's Mission Control - just click something to switch to it.

Better still, Task Spaces also supports virtual desktops. Add extra desktops as required and it'll display thumbnails of each one, making it easy to identify whatever you're after and switch to it.

There's also smarter snapping, new customisation options, and even a bunch of experimental additions to the command prompt.

Fall Creators Update brings a whole host of new features for Windows 10. See the Microsoft Blog for more information.

The Windows 10 ISO here will give you build 1809 which is the October 2018 Update.
