Keyboard Shortcuts

In Outlook 2010 and 2013, 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:

  1. Press ALT. Doing this makes KeyTips appear for all of the tabs on the Ribbon.
  2. Now press the corresponding key to open the tab or Quick Access Toolbar you want to use.
  3. 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.
