Three steps to use Bookmarks in IBM Lotus Notes

I've coached a lot of Lotus Notes users, and hardly any of them even knew that Notes has bookmarks! Maybe because it's hidden under a really weird name, as you'll see below.

1. Turn on bookmarks


To do this, open the "View" menu and select "Dock the Open List." I know that doesn't make any sense, but I just deliver the mail.

2. Create new bookmarks


In addition to the default bookmarks, you can create your own. To do that, just click the tab you want to bookmark, hold down the mouse button, and drag the tab onto the bookmarks bar:

And there's your new bookmark!

3. Turn on large icons


Let's face it, we're not getting younger, so using larger bookmark icons can really help. Just right-click the bookmarks bar and select "Use Large Icons."
