Now her email is buried in your newer email and you need to find that letter before you risk demotion or worse! What can you do? Add a "Find Button" to your toolbar and find that message!

You can use these to position your "Find" button wherever you like. Up being towards the left and down being towards the right. Now when you click your new "Find" button you'll be able find that email from your boss and see when the big, boring meeting is. You can search by "Person" or by subject, by word, or a group of words. Pretty simple, right? You can add as many buttons this way as you like. But only add the ones you'll use, otherwise things get too crowded and some of your buttons will be hidden and you'll have to click a drop-down arrow to see them.
