Here are some of my favorite keyboard shortcuts in Outlook, from a self-proclaimed keyboard junkie. Many of these are standard windows shortcuts, some are specific to Outlook:
thanks for posting this, always a good reminder to learn more of the shortcuts! i don't know nearly enough by heart.
With our Outlook agent, you can name all those events in Outlook so that typing something like find lets you find things, inbox takes you to the inbox, and that can be done from any application at any time.
Also, we allow you to synchronize first name, last name and company name in Outlook with ActiveWords so that you can type or click on a name in any context and in any application and get the Outlook record to open.
Thanks for that - I'll take a look to see if these solve my mouseless problems when the pc comes back from repair! Much appreciated.
One minor addition (that I use like crazy): Ctrl+Shift+I.
This takes you directly to your Inbox folder, not just whatever mail folder you were last in (Ctrl+1 does this).
I find it very useful when I leave Outlook in another mail folder (I'm a filer, too) to go do something and then I come back and want to jump to the Inbox to see what came in while I was away.
What's the shortcut for the paperclip (to send an attachment?) Thank you! L.F.
Leslie: I don't know of one other than using the shortcut keys to get to it via the menu, but boy do I wish there was! I'll put it on my list to write a little code to make this easier though.
Am I completely clueless or is there something I'm not doing right. I am a graphics person so keyboard shortcuts are a religion to me... but, I haven't had any succes getting any of these shortcuts to work for me. I'm particularly interested in the ctrl+1 etc. I'm using Outlook 2000 in an exchange environment.
alt L used to work from the preview pane. Now i have to open the email in order to use alt L
Alt L does a "reply all"
Connie - it's possible they don't exist in Outlook 2000. I believe most of them work in 2002, but I wouldn't be surprised if some don't in 2000.
I would love a keyboard shortcut to open an attachment. I work in Outlook for the majority of my day opening and printing the same page number in countless files...I have it down to an art for PDF...
open the document (double click) --> ctrl+shift+n --> page number --> enter --> ctrl+p --> alt+u --> enter --> ctrl+w --> alt+tab back to outlook to open the next document.
I am looking at writing a macro for it...with a great deal of help. hehe should be fun for my first Macro.
Thanks for the site and all the great information.
