Use the keyboard to work in Outlook

Outlook calendar with appointments in it

Callout 1 Underlined letters on the toolbar indicate keyboard shortcuts.
Callout 2 Use the TAB key to move between appointments.
Callout 3 Use the arrow keys to move between times and days.

In the last lesson you learned so much about e–mail that you may not remember that you can switch to Calendar by pressing CTRL+2.

Within Day/Week/Month view in Calendar, there are four views: Day, Work Week, Week, and Month. You can move back to today's date in any view. Use ALT+ the underlined letter in the Standard toolbar buttons to change the view (for example, ALT+W). Remember: if the specific buttons aren't visible on your toolbar, then the shortcut won't work. Also, there are shortcuts that move to Month and Week view regardless of the toolbar buttons, as you can see in the following table:

Action Shortcut Remember
Change calendar to week ALT+HYPHEN A python (to rhyme with hyphen) isn't weak (week). Get it?
Change calendar to month ALT+EQUAL SIGN Why aren't the days in a monthequal?
Change calendar to see specific number of days ALT+ the number of days (for example, ALT+5 shows five days) Just the number—this one's easy.
Move to a specific date CTRL+G G for Go to date.

To move between the Navigation Pane and the Calendar, use F6 as you did in Mail. Then, when you are in the Calendar pane, you can move around the days and time slots on the calendar by using the arrow keys.

To move between appointments, use the TAB key. To change the subject of an appointment, type directly into the item. If you want to change other details about the item, press ENTER to select it and then SHIFT+F10 to get to its shortcut menu. In the shortcut menu you can choose from a range of options concerning that meeting or appointment, including delete, label, open, and so on.
