Indeed, this is what I use. One handed command is super convenient. Never liked the control plus Y .

I actually preferred the tab/shift tab to jump between panes in older versions of Outlook, but what are you going to do? Gotta roll with the technology I suppose.

Another method that works consistently is to press shift, control and tab which will take you into the folders list. You can arrow up or down to your desired folder then press enter to access it.

Subject: switching folders in Outlook 2016
I'm using Windows 10 and Outlook 2016. There are times I switch
folders with no problem. There are times I go from one folder to
another numerous times by pressing shift F6 to get the listthe of
folders. The only thing that shows up is mail and then the word
button. I press the space bar or enter key and nothing happens. I then
exit Outlook and the cursor is sitting on the Outlook short cut on the
desk top. I press enter and it will not go into Outlook. I then press
the windows key and type outlook in on the search bar, press enter and
nothing happens. I look at the task manager and Outlook is not
running. I then go into another app without a problem. I will exit and
the cursor is on the desk top on that certain app. I move down to
Outlook and press enbter. Nothing happens. I then restart and still
cannot get into Outlook. I continue to mess around going into and out
of apps. Eventually I can get into Outlook. What could be causing this problem?
