Outlook Shortcuts in Conversation View

As I told you in my previous post, Outlook Shortcuts in Inbox, you can save so much time and keystrokes when you avail yourself of all the shortcuts Outlook has to offer.  Sadly, a lot of folks just do not know about them.

So, without further ado, let’s now learn the shortcuts to use in Outlook Conversation view:

  • CTRL + R sets you up to reply to an email
  • CTRL + Shift + R will will Reply All
  • CTRL + F will forward an email
  • Right-click on a selected email and select Ignore to mute the thread
  • CTRL + . (period) will, when you have one email open, allow you to jump to your next email
  • CTRL + , will allow you to jump back to the previous message

Some of these are pretty cool and save lots and lots of time for you busy people!

There are still a couple of other shortcut categories to cover so keep your peepers peeled!

Carol’s Random Ramblings…

Well the Christmas holidays are now over.  All traces of decorations and lights have been put away and everything kind of looks blah now.  For me, it’s just a countdown until Spring.  I hate cold weather and being cooped up in the house is really starting to wear on me. Ok, I am finished being gloomy now.

The above is, generally, how I handle a case of the grumpies.  I say my piece and then start thinking about all the good things in my life and how I should be grateful and not grumpy.  I highly recommend this method.  As my uncle used to say, “You don’t have to look far to see how blessed you are.”

So while I am stuck in the house I have been doing lots and lots of sewing, knitting,  and embroidering and have found I have a nice little cottage industry starting up.  I enjoy what I do and that is a very good thing! Making a little money on just sweetens it!

I hope you all had a lovely holiday and that you are all in good health.  Please. please take care of yourselves and keep it that way.

Until next time,

Carol-signature

Outlook Shortcuts in Inbox

As you all know, I absolutely hate to waste time and keystrokes. I like to get things done as quickly and easily as possible. Which brings me to the subject of shortcuts in Outlook.  I simply will not do without them and you probably will not either once you have seen how easy they are and how much time and effort they save.

Follow the steps below to see how:

First, be certain that keyboard shortcuts are enabled in Outlook:

  1. On the Home tab of your Ribbon, click Settings.
  2. Select More mail settings.
  3. In Customizing Outlook, select Keyboard Shortcuts.
  4. Select the mode of your choice.
  5. Click Save.

Ok, now that has been taken care of, let’s start learning some shortcuts in your Inbox:

CTRL + N will open a new email email for you.

CTRL + O will open a message you have selected

F9 will Send and Receive all

CTRL + A will select all messages in Outlook

CTRL + D will delete one or a selected group of emails

CTRL + Q will make a selected email as read

CTRL + U will make a selected email as unread

CTRL + Shift + G will flag your message for follow up

CTRL + Shift + K to open a new Task

CTRL + Shift + L and CTRL + Shift + O will allow you to jump between your inbox and outbox

F3 will move your cursor straight to your Search box

I think you will find these shortcuts very, very helpful and of course they will say you lots of time and keystrokes!

In my next post I will cover Outlook Shortcuts in Conversation View, so make sure to look for it!
