Close all items

Kicking and screaming, I have been 'upgraded' (I use the word loosely) by our IT folks at work to Office 2010. Cleverly, Microsoft have hidden most of the functionality I use somewhere fairly unintuitive - but I'm winning, because - slowly - I'm finding out where they've put it.

But one feature has eluded me. I often have 20 emails open at a time in Outlook and sometimes, for the sake of tidiness as much as anything, I want to close them all. In Outlook 2003, the command was 'File, close all items'. But I absolutely can't find that in Outlook 2010.

Can anyone put me out of my misery?

Thanks Woolwell. Judging by the date of the posts, he's not talking about Outlook 2010. I just looked (again) and that option doesn't exist. Oh well... Anyone else?

Also found this link, but it depends on wether you have admin (download) rights.

The post said "In Outlook 2010 this was moved under the View tab, where you can find the Close All Items button."

Works for me in Outlook 2010.

Thanks guys. Sorry, Woolwell, I should have read your post properly. It is, as you/Alejandro say, in the View tab - hidden all the way over at the right hand end. Many thanks all.
