  Praise the lord and pass the applications key. I should have mentioned the 
simple way to get the things out of the QAT, as some call it, is to reverse the 
operation. Focus on an unneeded button, hit applications key, down arrow to the 
remove option and enter.

    GW,

    Man, you have shown me the light, as have others. I constantly forget the 
power of the context menu. I'll have to give that a try next time and save one 
heck of a lot of extra steps!

    Keep up the good knowledge.

    Dave

      Dave,

      I am talking a bit out of school since I still use Outlook Express, but 
in other 2007 programs I've used, I can put focus on the selection I want to 
add to the quick access tool bar and hit the applications key and arrow down to 
add to quick access tool bar and enter. Voila. Alt H, up arrow once and your 
selections should be there. I added delete rows and columns in Excel and my OCR 
software in Word.

        Kirsten,

        Creating a quick access is fiddly, but easy once you've done it a 
couple times.

        1. With the message open, Press Alt to launch the ribbon.
        2. Shift tab until you hear customize quick access toolbar.
        3. Enter and then tab until you hear "more commands" (or use one of 
these commands already showing).
        4. In this dialog press tab to a list and arrow to "all commands" to 
not hide any.
        5. tab to the list and use first-letter navigation to find your 
command, in this case "view in browser".
        6. tab to the add button and press.
        7. tab to the list and see your new quick launch at the bottom of a 
list. the top is tied to number 1, and others 2, 3, etc.
        8. Use the up/down buttons to change the position of your new command 
as desired.
        9. Press OK to get out.
        10. test by pressing alt then shift tab a couple times to the quick 
launch toolbar. Your new command should be there, and announce the number to 
use.
        11. Press alt and then the number to launch the command.

        The numbers to use are from the number row and not the num pad.

        Dave

          Oh how do you make it a custom access option as you've done? 

          The irony is, I found it last night on FS website - hence why I had 
it in my head ... If anyone knows a way of stopping it altogether though I'd 
appreciate it.

          Kirsten,

           

          What a time-saver! Never thought to do this, but it really makes some 
awful messages easier to read. This should be put at the top of tips and tricks 
for JAWS with Outlook.

           

          I've made a customized quick access button for this, so now it's even 
easier to launch, and don't have to try and remember those multiple-key 
combinations.

            Alt H, X, V puts it into the browser which makes it easier.

            Hey folks,

            I have forgotten the setting or keystroke to be able to read those 
blamed tables which now seem to appear regularly in emails. I am using MS 
Outlook 2007 and it is a royal pain in the posterior.

            Cy
