If you have Outlook opened literally all day (and night) long, it is more of an inventory in Windows than an application. Users have a choice to not occupy a place in the task bar when minimized but rather open from the system tray, where it is readily accessible but not in the way.

Minimize Outlook to the System Tray
To minimize Outlook to a stylish icon in the Windows system tray:

  • Click on the Outlook icon in the system tray with the right mouse button.
  • Select Hide When Minimized from the menu.

Now, when Outlook is minimized, it should disappear from the task bar. To open Outlook again, double-click on the Outlook system tray icon.

antistatic matWhat?

Antistatic tools are used to safely ground electronic components when working on sensitive electronic equipment. They are there to help you protect electronic components, such as semiconductor components, from Electro Static Discharge (ESD).grounding clip The antistatic mat is made out of natural rubber, and comes in 2 different sizes. It has 2 surfaces, one green and one black, with different resistances. A grounding clip, which extends up to 2m, is then used to ground the mat. An antistatic wrist strap is also available to protect technicians from static while working with electronic components.

Why?

Antistatic tools help keep the equipment safe from ESD, therefore minimizing the risk of components being ruined due to static. In the long run, antistatic tools are an investment as they help reduce money lost on damages done during repairs.

Where?

Antistatic tools are used in a multitude of places, spanning production departments and advanced labs in microelectronic industry, to self-taught technicians working on building or repairing their own computers and devices.
