I am a "Home" Outlook user so 99% of the features I can't use as if I was using Outlook 2010 in a office environment, which is fine, it does what I need it to do.

Currently I use a program called Hott notes that allows me to add a new sticky note to my desktop for "To do things"

I was thinking that with all the features that Outlook 2010 has it must have a to do list or even a task list. It may have both I just have never tried to use either.

Today I was thinking I should get rid of this sticky note program and keep my "To do things" within Outlook 2010.

So I looked for a "to do list" and a "tasks" button on Outlook 2010, currently on my Outlook 2010 I have tabs for "Home" "send/receive" "folder" and "view" I found that on the "home" tab I can click "new items" and it gives me the option to create a new task. I assume any new task would show up on the right hand side where all my appointments show.

So here is my question:

What I really need is a "To do list" I would rather see a to do list than clutter up mt appointments with "Tasks" So first of all does Outlook 2010 have a "To do List" feature if so how do I use it.

If not how can I add the "tasks" to my main ribbon so it shows up where these tabs show up "Home" "send/receive" "folder" and "view".

Thank you very much for any help

Try Ctrl+4 or click the Task icon in the navigation pane - if you have the navigation pane off, turn it on from the View tab > Navigation pane button.

If you don't see the button on the Navigation, click the little triangle on the right.

Thank you for your reply, I found how to use those features since I posted. I don't think the way they work will work well enough for me, I have found another way to list things to do.
Once again thanks for your time and reply
