Bob,

Are you able to get into the "task switching loop" by intention
or, at the very least, reasonably consistently?

It is going to be close to impossible for anyone to help you out
of this unless they can see how it is that you're getting into it and what's
actually occurring at the time. I'm still unclear as to what, exactly, is
occurring.

If you have a keypad on your computer, shift plus the + on the keypad. That will allow you to get to the touch. Arrow until we hear focus or other. Press on the one you want.

There is an area above the list of messages which contains options for it. I've got a search facility, ways to sort the list of messages, and the Focused and Other buttons when I'm in Focused Inbox, or All and Unread when I'm not in Focused Inbox.

From my Inbox list of messages I can Tab into this area. I have to Tab four times to get to the Focused button, and once more for the Other button. But if I keep Tabbing, I never return to the Inbox list of messages, which is weird. I either have to choose an option and press Enter, or press Escape to get back to my list of messages.

I found that you can move a message from "focused" to "other" using an
option in the context menu. However, I'm still not sure what the quickest
way is to move to the buttons that switch between the "focused" and "other"
messages in the inbox.

Other than that, I haven't encountered any problems so far.

Subject: Focused inbox in Microsoft Outlook for Windows

I'm trying to manage my mail better by invoking the "focused inbox" option
in Outlook for Windows (the latest version installed from Office 365).

After turning on Focused Inbox within the View tab, what's the easiest way
to switch between the "focused" and "other" inboxes, and to move messages
between the two?

Focused Inbox works well under Microsoft Outlook for iOS, but it isn't
obvious how to use it with JAWS (or any other screen reader) under Windows.
So, hints would be welcome from those who have been there already.

Re: purchasing computer questions

 

RAM is pretty price these days and I doubt for most average computer users there is any benefit in 32Gb of RAM. I have 16Gb in my Asus Zenbook and 1 of my HP EliteDesk mini PC’s and I notice very little difference to my other systems which all have 12Gb.

I feel that if the money is no issue 16Gb is better than 8Gb, but you gain a lot more if you invest the aditional cost for 32Gb and for I7 over I5 into a 256Gb SSD.

Re: purchasing computer questions

 

I agree, my Asus Zenbook with 15 inch screen has a number pad and so does my very old Acer 15 inch laptop.

My suggestion is that you give preference to laptops with an SSD over a traditional hard drive since an SSD will give you a better performance boost than say going from an I5 to an I7 CPU, you would want at least 8Gb of RAM and I would look at either a current or previous generation I5 CPU, if you go with something that doesn’t have the latest it will probably be quite a bit cheaper.
