If you’re anything like me, you might find yourself juggling a staggering number of projects at any given time. This can make for quite a challenge when you’re searching for that super important document from two days ago. And while we would all love to consider ourselves the most organized person in the office, sometimes our desktop doesn’t reflect that. That’s where Timeline comes in.
To access your timeline, simply press Windows Tab key or click the Task View button in your Taskbar.
This gives you a timestamped view of the work you’ve been doing recently and allows you to pick up right where you left off. For example, let’s say you’re on the hunt for a Microsoft Excel file. Type “excel” into the search bar for a view of all of the recent spreadsheets you’ve had open. It’s a very simple concept, and one that can potentially save you a lot of time digging through your files.
