In her regular series for Cambridge Network members, software training expert Karen Roem offers handy tips to help you 'Tame your computer'. This week she has advice for anyone who's in a hurry - a list of handy keyboard shortcuts for Microsoft Outlook*...
Tame your computer - take a shortcut
Why use the mouse? Here are a few shortcuts that I find most useful:
Switch to Mail : press CTRL+1
Switch to Calendar : press CTRL+2
Switch to Contacts : press CTRL+3
Switch to Tasks : press CTRL+4
Switch to Notes : press CTRL+5
Switch to your Folder List : press CTRL+6
Switch to Shortcuts : press CTRL+7
Switch to Journal : press CTRL+8
Keyboard shortcuts may sometimes be unintuitive or hard to remember, but I “drip feed” a new shortcut every week on my home page, to help you to boost productivity without reaching for your mouse. You can download a list of those published so far from http://www.roem.co.uk/inc/shortcut_archive.pdf. Where available, it links to a tip of the week.
