Tim Hibbard CEO for EnGraph software

Typing mailto: in the search box in the Vista start menu will open a new mail message in Outlook. 

It is much faster for me to hit the Win key on my keyboard and type mailto: than it is for me to hunt through the 15 open applications, find Outlook and click "New".  Plus I don't have to transition between my mouse and keyboard.

It's really not a new Vista thing since you could have typed WinKey + R, then mailto: before, but it's still cool.
