# Can I make a shortcut to open a new note in Outlook 2007?

I'm looking for a command-line style way of opening a new note in Outlook 2007.

It'll be executed from a .bat script.

Basically, is there some switch on outlook.exe or similar that I can use to get a new note?

From the Office command line switch reference:

/c messageclass

Creates a new item of the specified message class (Outlook forms or any other valid MAPI form).

Examples:

• /c ipm.activity creates a Journal entry
• /c ipm.appointment creates an appointment
• /c ipm.contact creates a contact
• /c ipm.note creates an e-mail message
• /c ipm.stickynote creates a note
\Path\to\outlook.exe /c ipm.stickynote
