Outlook tip: view your Google Reader feeds

A way to help make the most of the email app

I can't say I'm an Outlook fan, but for better or worse, I'm stuck with it. Fortunately, I've found a few ways to make the most of it, like using it as an RSS reader for my Google Reader account.

In other words, no more switching over to my browser every time I want to read my feeds.

Want to give this a try yourself? Here's how:

1. Switch to the Mail view.

2. Right click the RSS Feeds option in the Navigation Pane and choose Properties.

3. Click the Home Page tab, and then type this URL into the Address field: http://www.google.com/reader.

4. Make sure that Show home page by default for this folder is enabled.

5. Click OK and you're done!

Now, when you click RSS Feeds, you'll see the Google Reader home page just like in your browser. Sign in and presto, you've got your feeds.

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

MSI PS63

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

Brother RJ-4230B

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
