moderated Re: adding Outlook contacts


Bill, that's not when he gets the ding. he gets it when he attempts to start a new email to someone who is already in the contacts, and instead of typing the recipient's address, he simply wants to type the first and last name initials of that person.

Hi, Mario. He must type SHIFT plus CONTROL plus C, not just C. Just typing C gives me a ding also.

I am thinking there is some setting that would allow him to do that,
that might have been somehow been disabled because all he gets is a ding
sound when he attempts to type CF, as he mentioned in his example. so,
still would appreciate a suggestion or better yet, the solution.

If you just add the contact and send an Email, after that you will be
able to type the first couple of letters, etc. I am not sure you even
have to make the person a contact to do this.

regarding , this is what he told me he wants to do:

"I put the email address in the list.
now I am going to send them a email but I don't want to spell the hole name.
I can just put the first to letters of the name or what numbers or letters.
I do this with chris, I am sending her a email. all I punch in cf
(her first and last name initials) and her
email comes up and I do this with a lot of people that I email a lot
I hope that makes sense."

the verbage between the parentheses is my comment because I know
who the Chris he mentioned is. I don't know how what he is asking
can be accomplished. anyone have a clue?

a friend of mine is using Outlook 2016 with JAWS 2021 on Windows 10, and
wants to know the keystrokes for adding a new contact to his list, and
"also putting a short cut key for the name I am adding".

I don't know what he is talking about in reference to his latter
request. nor do I know the answer to his former request since I don't
use Outlook. would someone please help.
