find name in outlook

Quickly locate a user in your address book or a company address book by typing portions of the name or alias and pressing Ctrl+K.

For example, if you wanted to send an e-mail to John Doe, typing "jo do" and then press Ctrl+K to automatically complete the name John Doe, unless other names exist with "jo" and "do."

Auto-completion of names in the Address Book is very helpful when searching a large address book, especially when you don't know how to spell someone's name.
