PROBLEM: Wanting to improve the speed in which you create and send emails
SOLUTION: Use shortcuts!
Create and send an Outlook 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.
2. Address the email and add a subject. Press TAB to move between the To, CC and Subject boxes.
3. Press TAB to move into the message body. Type the message.
4. 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’.
