PROBLEM: Wanting to improve the speed in which you create and send emails?
SOLUTION: Try using these shortcuts!
Outlook 2010, 2013 & 2016 – Create and send a message using keyboard shortcuts
Follow the steps below to send a message. Once you get good at them you’ll be whizzing emails out with rocket speed.
- To create a new message press CTRL + N.
- Address the email and add a subject. Press TAB to move between the To, CC and Subject boxes.
- Press TAB to move into the message body. Type the message.
- Press CTRL + ENTER to send the message. At this point you may see a dialog box asking if you want to use CTRL+ENTER as a keyboard shortcut for sending a message. Press ENTER once more.
Tip: You can substitute step 4 with ALT + S and the email will be sent immediately.
Note: If you open a message form and then decide you want to close it without sending press ALT + F4. If the message contains any content Outlook will ask if you want to save the changes. Press ALT + N to select ‘No’.
