Jason,

 

Thanks, wow! Had no idea one could do so many different type searches. Glad there won’t be a test on this later 😊

Actually, a faster method of accessing the same search box Seagar uses is to press F3. You can essentially run the same exact search within Outlook than one can run using the ControlAltF Advanced search method except there’s less tabbing using F3 as opposed to the Advanced search.

 

The Outlook search box can be used to find specific events or appointments within the calendar. You can also use the search box to find very specific pieces of information contained within your contacts such as birthday and family relationships. Press F3 then type in an area code to show all individuals in that area code. If you keep good notes per contact, you can quickly find business contacts using this search field.

 

There are some customizations you can make to specify where you want Outlook to search (inbox or all mail folders), but using the search box in Outlook is very easy, quick, and incredibly efficient for managing information associated with friends, family, and business.

Sieghard,

 

Do you ever use the Ctrl shift F command as alluded to in the initial post? Seems to be a lot more filtering options with that option. If so, any suggestions as usually your input is pretty thorough?

I usually use Control+E to go to the search box, type my search term, press enter and then I press Shift+Tab which puts me in a list of messages, the Inbox I guess with only those messages showing which meet the search term.

Hi,
I use JAWS 2018 in my Windows 10 PC. I use Outlook and was trying to find a particular email and used Shift + Ctrl + F for the same. The dialogue box popped up and I typed in what I was looking for. The email that was found using this method shows at the bottom of the dialogue box. However, I was unable to access it using the keyboard. Pressing Tab key took me back to the top of the dialogue box but not to the email that was found. The email, however, can be accessed by clicking on it. Can anyone help me on how I can access it using Keyboard?
Thanks!
