Hi all,

 

I’m getting along with the search features in Outlook a lot better now.  It feels good to be able to find things once again.  It does look like using the advance search feature will take more practice to memorize the various steps...A lot of options there.

 

Several different listers got involved withgiving me advice on this one.  Man,I sure have needed it for a long time.

 

I thank all of you.

Here's more on the search to top it up.

  If you did look at the advance search as we spoken, you can find a few things.

1. There's a search area which you tab once you hit ctrl - shift -f and tell where the search to find, default is subject field only, there's a few more like, subject field and message body and last is frequently used text field.

The above is what most or at least half of the users will use most of the time

2. You can even bring down more specific search, like  From, Send to, , time. I am yet to talk about more option which can select things like important, flag etc.

Trust me, if you can't remember the first choice I mentioned above, then the more option will not be much use. Play with it and you will get the driff of all the search function we all mention on this list.

Thomas N. Chan

If you don't know where they are, find the your pst or  outlook data file. Make sure you select the parent all the way at the top.

tab again and select sub folder or something like that

It will now select all your folders within the outlook data file.

hit enter or tab to ok

Thats where you can now search for all folders for that particular email or items you are after.

Follow the previous email list member instruction and search for the item.

To browse on the result if or if you have not, hit f6

That will bring your focus  to it.

 

I know its a lot of to remember but once you do it often or do it a fewtimes, you know how to do it.

I have been using Outlook for  a long long time.

Hi James,

 

If you are using MS365, then I am assuming the email client is Outlook. To do a find press Control + Shift + F. You will land in a field in which you can type a search term. If that is what you are searching for type the term. Then tab and you will be in a combo box where you can choose the search term to be either located in just the subject or in

both the subject and body of the emails.

 

If you are looking for email that was sent from or sent to someone, tab passed these fields and you will find fields in which to enter either the from or to names.

 

After you have entered the search terms you want press enter. When the search is complete you will get the  message “find now.” Once you get that message press F6 and you will be in the list of messages it found.

 

I hope that helps!

 

Take care and stay safe!

Hi Brian and list,

 

First, let me apologize for being so far behind on reading emails.

 

Back when I was using Windows Live Mail.  I could search for a particular word in any folder or subfolder by going through the menus/ribbons without any problems.

 

Now, after using MS365 for around 15 months now, I still can’t figure out how to use the search feature.

 

I could come up with around 5 or 6 additional problems that I have with MS365 but I don’t want to give myself a headache thinking about them.

 

I use MS365 because  it is better for me than any thing else that I have tried.  Including Windows mail and Thunderbird and the web mail that Gmail and A T and T offer.

 

So, I’m not saying that it isn’t the best thing going, but, at least for me, I still can’t do some very basic things like search folders for a certain word or phrase. 

 

For example, the hot key like Control, Shift, A goes in to advanced search.  That works fine for me.  But following the prompts/understanding the menus from that point to find what Iam looking for just isn’t working for me.  I’ve run in to dead ends with other things that were very easy with WLM.

Hi Brian,

 

Thanks for the reply and the confirmation. I’ll sort out how to contact Microsoft Accessibility in order to report this. I surely can’t believe this behavior is by design. And also thanks for telling me about the first letter navigation. I expect I’ll normally be searching for Contacts when not searching for the Messages default and tapping the c key as you suggested gets me there.

Alan,

I am getting the same peculiar behavior with that dropdown box as you are and using NVDA.  What I have noticed that ALT+K, followed by the first letter of the item you want to search, works to set it.  You do have to do this twice if you want to look in Appointments as there is an All category that will come with the first letter A.  Here are the dropdown box options:

Any type of Outlook item

Appointments and Meetings

Contacts

Files (Outlook/Exchange)

Journal Entries

Messages [default at initial opening]

Notes

Tasks

Another thing I'm noticing, and it's not 100% consistent, is sometimes after you do an ALT+K, letter combination the Advanced Find box disappears from focus and visual view, but it is not actually closed.  You need to bring it back up via ALT+TAB.

Both of these things seem to be Outlook bugs and you may want to get Microsoft Accessibility involved and demo them for them so they can see it actually happening.

By the way, I'm using Outlook 2016, but 2016 serves as the code base for 2019 and 365, and I very much doubt that Advanced Find has been touched in some time.

Hi List,

 

I’m using Fusion 2020 and am learning a new Outlook 2019 on a new Windows 10 computer. I noted the advanced find keystroke of ctrl + shift + f buried in the Email Clients thread  that seems to have acquired  a life of its own. When you invoke the advance find dialog with the hotkey, you can press alt + k to move to the combo box where you can pick where you want to search.  If starting from the inbox as I usually am, you’ll by default be searching Messages which is preselected in the combo box. After pressing alt + k, I press alt + down arrow to move through the drop-down list that opens. This is where the behavior is unlike anything I’m used to on my Windows 7 computer. Instead of letting me arrow up and down the list and pressing enter to select the one I want, as soon as I press either up or down arrow, the list closes and whichever item was in the arrowed spot is selected. Is there another way to arrow up and down through a combo box list in Outlook 2019 you can share where I can be the one making the selection?

 

Thanks in advance for your help.

Hi, Madison. I usually use CONTROL plus F5, because that keystroke refreshes
from the server rather than refreshing from the cache. If you refresh from
the server, and something about the page has changed, that way is more
reliable. If you just want to refresh from the cache, you can use either
CONTROL plus R, or just F5.

Once you hit ctrl - shift - f for advance search, make sure you browse to the right place to search. 
You would hit alt - b and browser to the right place and hit space bar to check.
If you don't know where they are, find the your pst or  outlook data file. Make sure you select the parent all the way at the top.
tab again and select sub folder or something like that
It will now select all your folders within the outlook data file.
hit enter or tab to ok
Thats where you can now search for all folders for that particular email or items you are after.
Follow the previous email list member instruction and search for the item.
To browse on the result if or if you have not, hit f6
That will bring your focus  to it.

I know its a lot of to remember but once you do it often or do it a fewtimes, you know how to do it.
I have been using Outlook for  a long long time.

Thank you Sieghard and debby,

 

The Control with E is working for me.

 

I still do not know what I was doing wrong with the advance search but I just did around 5 searches and my words and phrases came right up.

Control + Shift + F gets you the Advanced Find dialgue, I find most of the time a simple search which you get with Control + E works for me. If I am in my main Inbox and press Control + E and then search for any search term it looks in all the folders I have, if I want to limit the search to a particular folder I just go to that folder first, then press Control + E and type in my word or search term followed by pressing enter.

Hi James,

 

If you are using MS365, then I am assuming the email client is Outlook. To do a find press Control + Shift + F. You will land in a field in which you can type a search term. If that is what you are searching for type the term. Then tab and you will be in a combo box where you can choose the search term to be either located in just the subject or in

both the subject and body of the emails.

 

If you are looking for email that was sent from or sent to someone, tab passed these fields and you will find fields in which to enter either the from or to names.

 

After you have entered the search terms you want press enter. When the search is complete you will get the  message “find now.” Once you get that message press F6 and you will be in the list of messages it found.

 

I hope that helps!

 

Take care and stay safe!

 

Debby

Hi Brian and list,

 

First, let me apologize for being so far behind on reading emails.

 

Back when I was using Windows Live Mail.  I could search for a particular word in any folder or subfolder by going through the menus/ribbons without any problems.

 

Now, after using MS365 for around 15 months now, I still can’t figure out how to use the search feature.

 

I could come up with around 5 or 6 additional problems that I have with MS365 but I don’t want to give myself a headache thinking about them.

 

I use MS365 because  it is better for me than any thing else that I have tried.  Including Windows mail and Thunderbird and the web mail that Gmail and A T and T offer.

 

So, I’m not saying that it isn’t the best thing going, but, at least for me, I still can’t do some very basic things like search folders for a certain word or phrase. 

 

For example, the hot key like Control, Shift, A goes in to advanced search.  That works fine for me.  But following the prompts/understanding the menus from that point to find what Iam looking for just isn’t working for me.  I’ve run in to dead ends with other things that were very easy with WLM.

 

Regards,

 

James B

James & Alan,

          I'm curious to hear some specific examples from you.  I absolutely will not deny the seemingly endless stream of new bells and whistles from Microsoft and others, but with the sole exception of the introduction of the ribbon interface (and even then, only for a subset of commands), I haven't encountered many keyboard shortcuts change at all.  The "old standards" have been the same quite literally for as long as I can remember, and the Windows commands that form the core of many programs (e.g., Save, Save As, the navigation dialog for both, Open, etc.) have been, too.

           There is very seldom, in my experience, any shakeup in existing shortcuts secondary to new additions to the UI, whatever those additions may be.  Note well I said seldom, not absolutely never.

I will not bother if the sound is being made or not. Too many variable  if the plug and play will not play. Speaker not working, cable issue, wav corruption or even that particular sound has been disable.
The best of guessing what is the problem, just open device manager by typing
devmgmt.msc on the run and tab twice after
then scroll down and find  Disk drive. open the tree and see if the new drive is there or not
Even if there's no drive letter allocation, windows will try to load driver to talk to it. If it does, no point trying too hard as what Bryan said. Just return.

I posted the answer to this question way back at the beginning. You need to initialize the drive and format it. The other problem may be a defective disk.

Open disk manager by typing disk manager in the windows search box in the start menu. Now maximize the window and tab to the lower pane and use your jaws cursor to navigate the drives. you will be looking for a drive that says raw or unformatted or something like that. You may need to go back to the PC cursor and arrow down to the bottom of the list and then use the jaws cursor again to read the drives that may not have fit in the window without scrolling. Once you find the drive use the ctrl and arrow keys to find the size of the disk. it should be around 2000MB. right click on it and click on format. If format is not an option you will need to  create a new partition. Just follow the steps in the wizard and leave everything at the default settings. It will partition and format the drive and it will be usable.

Hi, Mike. Gezim lives in Kosovo, so I think that would be a problem for him to call the Microsoft Disability number.

Hi Gezim,

Maybe a call to Microsoft Accessibility will get to the root of the problem.

Placing my hand on the device, I could hear its vibration; but I did not hear the sound nor did I get the notification that the software was being installed.

When you connected the new external drive, did you hear the ascending two-tone indication, that a USB device had been connected, and also, did you get the notification, that the driver software for that device was being installed? and lastly, did you place your hand on the device, to see if you could feel the slight vibration of its motor or you heard its motor, that is, if it is a hard drive?

If you did not hear the ascending two-tone, after connecting the external device, then Windows did not recognize that such a device had been connected to the system, and it is highly likely, there is something wrong with the device, and you should return it for a replacement.

I just tried your recommendation. Three disks appeared on the list, but JAWS says that ‘change drive letters and paths’ is unavailable. Anyway, I am not sure that my Passport Ultra is one of those three.

I'm a big fan of Windows Run commands. You can press the Windows key + r to open a run command window and type diskmgmt.msc in the text box and press enter to bring up a file explorer window with your connected disk drives listed. You can shift F10 on any drive listed to bring up a context menu where you can assign drive letters, etc.

Good luck.

This is an outside shot, but I'm only suggesting this as something to check.

There's a setting that if turned on hides empty drives.

While in File Explorer press, Alt + F, then press the letter, O, to open Change folder and search options.

Control + tab to the View tab / page.

Tab a couple of times to the Advanced setting tree view.

Press the letter, H, 2 times I believe, to land on, Hide empty drives.  If Jaws reports this as, On , press the spacebar to turn it off.

Now tab to, Okay, and press enter to save / close.

Stay safe and take care.  Mike.

you need to open disk manager. then find your hard drive and see if it needs to have a Drive letter assign to it. but since It's not showing up  it probably needs to be formatted or initialized.

Hi all,

I just bought a My Passport Ultra hard disk, but I cannot see it I my laptop. I am using the latest JAWS version, if that has any relevance.

I hope this is not too off-topic, and I would appreciate your help.
