Use Google Reader From Within Outlook

Reader David writes in with a useful tip for consolidating windows—he embeds Google Reader into Outlook as a replacement for the built-in RSS support. Replacing the current RSS Feeds folder with Google Reader instead is easy—just right-click on the folder, choose Properties, enter the URL to Google Reader on the Home Page tab, and then check the box for "Show home page by default for this folder". You can even use the full URL to a specific folder in Google Reader, or create extra folders in Outlook and use a different URL for quick access to different views.

The technique itself is nothing new to most Lifehacker readers, but it's a very useful tip if you spend most of your day in Outlook anyway. Thanks, David!


    anyway to get links to open in a browser other than i.e? this is a show stopper for me.
