Coming from the MAC world I really enjoyed the "My Day" feature, a shortcut to my Task list. It's a convenient way to see what's up with opening Outlook. So, now I have a pretty sweet new PC with uber bells n whistles and new 2013 MS Office running Version 7 operating system. Please tell me how I can get the same type of feature on the PC as I had on the MAC or some semblance of a shortcut on my desktop. Is it even possible or is that a pipe dream? I'm not looking for a shortcut to Outlook - I know how to do that. I want to see run down of tasks for the current week on my desktop. Please help. thank you.

Outlook doesn't have a separate utility that displays tasks or appointments. You can use Outlook today in Outlook, or the To-Do Bar, but both (obviously) require Outlook to be running. There are some 3rd party utilities that can do this, but they either work by opening outlook in the background or copying outlook data to a file.

Thanks. I figured it would be a pipe dream.
