Get Maps and Directions to Your Contacts in Outlook 2007

This article was written by MysticGeek, a tech blogger at the How-To Geek Blogs.

If you use Outlook to store all of your contacts, you can also use it to quickly find maps and directions for your contacts by using the quick access Map button.

This is a fairly simple tip, but useful if you aren’t aware that it’s there.

Just open up one of your contacts…

And click on the Map button on the Contact tab.

MSN maps will immediately open in your default browser, centered on the address found in the contact information.

You can use this to quickly find directions by clicking the “To here” or “From here” links on the right.
