Tip of the Month (November 2001)
on Your New Button Menu
To turbocharge your efficiency, go to Start > Settings > Menus > New Menu. At the top of the screen, check the box that says, "Turn on New button menu," and below that, check the boxes for all of the applications and document types that you use regularly. From now on, you will find a little "up-arrow" next to the New menu button in the taskbars of the various applications. Tapping this arrow will pop up a menu that allows you to open any of a number of new documents: contacts, emails, notes, Pocket Word docs, Pocket Excel workbooks, etc. This saves you from having to open the new application first.
