Outlook, like Gmail, offers an interesting convenience that can sometimes turn into a problem. If you send a message to someone who is not listed amongst your contacts, Outlook remembers the email address. When you start typing an address or name in the To field of an email, these unlisted addresses (sorry, I couldn’t resist) pop up, along with those in your address book. This allows you to easily bring up someone’s address without bothering to first enter it into Outlook’s Contacts database.But these unofficial addresses can also be annoying. If an out-of-date email address–or worse, an out-of-favor friend–pop up when you don’t want it to, you might not consider it all that convenient.
But how can you delete an address from your contacts if that address isn’t there to begin with? Actually, doing so is pretty easy in Outlook::
When the name appears below the To field, point to the name but don’t click. This will select it, and anÂ xÂ will appears to the right of the name or address. Click thatÂ x.

Tip of the monthTabbed Browsing
All up to date browsers – Internet Explorer, Chrome, Mozilla Firefox – utilize what are called “tabs”. Tabs allow you to open multiple web pages in a single browser window. It is particularly helpful if you are comparing information from 2 sites as you can easily move back and forth between them. Basically you can open as many tabs as you want. Besides being able to click on tabs, you can use CTRL + Tab keys to move between the pages. To open a new browser tab, click the New Tab button to the right of the tabs on the browser toolbar, or use a right click and choose New Tab. If you want to open a link on a page in a new tab so you don’t move from the page you are on, right click and choose “Open link in new tab”. You can also open a link in a new tab by holding down your CTRL key and clicking with the left mouse button.Here’s another trick while using tabs: if you ever close one accidentally, you can right-click your tab bar and use the option to “Reopen Closed Tab”. The browser will reopen the tab you last closed. To close a tab, you can use CTRL+W or you can simply find a small x in the right hand corner of the tab and you can click it. If you have many tabs open and you are using Google Chrome as your browser, you can right click on the tab bar and choose “Close all tabs to the right”.
