TheBrain 9 Desktop Beta category
Dragging Outlook messages to the desktop first has always been inconvenient for me. I rarely see the desktop and when I do, I don't like to show desktop icons. So, to drag messages to the desktop, I've had to show the desktop (which I sometimes only think of after I'm dragging the OL message - too late), right click > view > Show desktop icons. Then drag the message onto the desktop. Then, finally drag it into TB.
Today, I realized (and this may have been mentioned elsewhere) that I can drag the Outlook message to ANY folder, not just the desktop. So, I created a new folder called "Add to The Brain" and added it to my Quick Access menu. Now it is much easier for me to drag an OL message to that folder as I always have it pinned to my Windows taskbar. Works for OL contacts as well. Now, not only is it more convenient, but I don't have to remember to immediately move them into The Brain. That folder is only used as as staging area. It's working great!
