Check out the Logitech K780.
 someone else who I thin; is on this list, likes that one quite a bit, but I do not know about the keys separation.

This is an older one, but the F-keys are separated into groups of four, it is exactly like a regular desktop keyboard.
In fact, I think I will look into a bluetooth transmitter that I could plug into an old desktop computer to turn one of those into a bluetooth keyboard.

Logitech K270 is a great wireless keyboard. It is a standard keyboard except it does not have a windows key on the right side. About $20 on Amazon.

I assume you are talking about wireless keyboards, not necessarily bluetooth ones, since I believe there are very few choices for the actual bluetooth PC keyboards. If htis is the case, I can recommend my keyboard, it almost fits your requirements: Microsoft Wireless Comfort Desktop 5050. Function keys are not separated into groups of four, but what I've done is I put sticky dots on the function keys to make them into groups of four. I put bigger dots on F2 and F3, and I put smaller ones on F1 and F4, so that I can feel the whole group of 4 as a single block of keys.

This works, too.  But there's no need to hit Enter, and doing so will generally result in you putting that into your document.  The display of edit markers comes up/goes away the moment after you've hit that 8 if you use ALT+H,8.

The same is true if you use CTRL+Shift+8, which has the disadvantage of being a triple-key shortcut because of the use of asterisk (shift+8).  The effect of the command is immediate.

moderated Re: How to group by subject - Was: RE: in outlook 2019, how do you delete messages with one subject at once if you aren't interested in them?

Van Lant, Robin
 

For this JAWS list, I have a rule that puts all the messages in one folder when received, arranged with newest at the top.  I then have the columns organized so that subject is the first item JAWS reads, after the read/unread icon. Then, I have Conversations turned on.  This puts all JAWS list messages of a single subject into  one collapsible item.  If  you use this view, you also need to go into Outlook options and look for the setting under Accessibility  for keyboard navigation and tell outlook not to automatically expand conversations as you arrow past them.  I still find that this can happen, especially when I first come to this folder, but it’s not bad.   I thought JAWS used to consistently tell me if a conversation was expanded or collapsed, but I’m not hearing it right now and not sure if that is a JAWS change or something I accidentally tweaked.  Nonetheless, you can tell it’s a conversation header item If you hear multiple names after a subject line, as it will read the names of those who have contributed to that thread.  If you are on the  top item in this conversation, hitting delete will delete all the messages in that thread. I get a warning that I’m doing that.   If the conversation is expanded, hitting delete on any of the message will delete just that message.

 

Hopefully this gives you some ideas of things you can do.  I’m headed into meetings for the rest of the day, so I don’t’ have time to elaborate more.

A much more efficient way to delete items not of interest is to group by subject. I had this set, but some gremlin has undone it, and I can’t get it back.

Any Outlook hot-shot wonky wizards there to help?

IN Outlook 2016, with a message wit the subject line highlighted, applications key then I for ignore to delete the conversation. Also, if it’s regarding a thread via Groups.IO, there’s always the mute option if you have an account which is easy enough to create.

Control plus the delete key also works.

I can’t remember who posted this alternative method, but it’s what I’ve been using for a while.

 

Press the applications key. Release.

Press f. Release.

JAWS verbalizes, “Messages in this conversation.” Press enter.

Shift-tab to land in this list of messages.

Control-a for select all.

Delete key.

 

To return to the original message list, press escape, then alt-tab, release, alt-tab a second time.

 

A little burdensome? Yes, but it becomes automatic.

This is why moderators are reminding their group members to change the subject line if it has not been change and does not match the body of the subject line.  One does not want to throw the baby out with the bath water?

No snark intended, but you've given your answer, or the exact thing you need to do, which is the hard part.

ALT+V (View Ribbon), AB (arrange by), J (subject).   I can't tell you how to go back to whatever arrangement you had without knowing what that was, and you'll need to look at how you've elected to group typically before changing it to subject.  For myself, I use Date (conversations) for my default view, so substitute a D where the J is in the other command sequence to go back to that.

Jim,

           For "quick and dirty" selection of a number of messages that have something sufficiently distinctive about them, I use the basic search function (CTRL+E), enter the search criteria (say, with the quotes, "Purple People Eater" if all the messages have this as their subject, or part of it, and others don't), then select all of the search results after it's done and hit Delete to delete them.

           You sometimes have to do several iterations of this, depending on how many messages are involved and how many have already been found when you first do the select all.
