If you find yourself switching back and forth between two views – such as calendar and mail, for example – you might want to consider keeping each view open in a separate window, which you can then arrange side by side. I personally find that this greatly simplifies my work flow as I can easily drag contacts or e-mail messages directly to my calendar using this configuration.
To open a view or folder in a new window, right-click on the item (the calendar button, for example) and then click “Open in New Window”.
To make your screens even more uncluttered, you can also hide the Navigation Pane and the Ribbon.
