In Outlook 2010, keyboard shortcuts that begin with the CTRL key, such as CTRL+N to create a new, blank email, remain the same as in previous versions of Outlook.
However, shortcuts that in previous Outlook versions involved pressing ALT have changed; these are now called KeyTips.
To display KeyTips:
- Press ALT. Doing this makes KeyTips appear for all of the tabs on the Ribbon.
- Now press the corresponding key to open the tab or Quick Access Toolbar you want to use.
- Press the letter of the command you wish to execute.
For example, to create a new folder for your messages, you would press ALT, and then O to display the folder tab, and finally N to create a new folder.
