Reading about keyboards shortcuts is all very well, but you'll really learn how useful they are when you try them out. In this practice session, use keyboard shortcuts to send, forward, and reply to a message. Then practice filing messages in a folder.

See Outlook Help if you would like a complete list of all the keyboard shortcuts available in Outlook.

About the practice session

When you click Practice in Outlook, Outlook will open and a separate window with practice instructions will appear alongside (see picture).

Note     You need to have Outlook 2003 installed on your computer.

Tips

  • If the practice instructions aren't visible, or disappear when you click in Outlook, click the Outlook Help taskbar button and then click the Auto Tile button on the upper-left corner of the instructions.
  • If the practice instructions cover up Outlook, click the Auto Tile button on the upper-left corner of the instructions.
