moderated Outlook won't let me use al f to save emails


Kestrel Verlager <kestrell@...>
 

Thanks, Bill! I knew there were alternative methods for saving messages, but I couldn’t think of any of them, and this one is so intuitive.

Hi, Kestrel. If you're trying to save an email you are composing, ALT plus S should send it. If you're trying to save an email you received as an 'msg' file so you can open it later, and keep it as a file, try f12, for Save As.

Subject: Outlook won't let me use al f to save emails

 

I’ve had this issue on and off before, but last time I solved it through random key presses and dumb luck, so I don’t remember specifically what I did to fix it.

 

I’m running Windows 10, Office 365, and Jaws 2022, the latest update.

 

The issue is that when I am in Outlook and I read an email I want to save, when I press alt f to invoke the file menu, no menus appear, and Windows just makes the ding sound that indicates you can’t do that.

 

When I am in the inbox list of emails and I first press enter to get into an email I want to read, Jaws says “Read only” before reading the email.

 

I know there is a reading pane checkbox somewhere on the ribbon, but I know I have that set to the correct setting to allow me to read everything, because I checked this the previous time I had this issue.

 

Any suggestions?

Thanks! That command works to move a message to a folder.

 

I still can’t use alt f, however, which means I can’t save a message as a file, or use other commands on the file menu. It’s very puzzling to me.

To save a message, either press escape to leave it intact or move it to a desired folder with control-shift-v.

By the way, Kestrel, if you use F12 to save an email as a message file, the usual location where it will be saved is Documents, or C:\Users\"Username"\Documents, where "Username" is the name by which you are known in your Windows User Account.
