Oulook 2013 Moving Email to Folders RRS feed

  • Question

  • We recently upgraded to Outlook 2013 (from Outlook 2010).

    In 2010, I set up (some kind of?) shortcut that allowed me to move emails to another folder. Essentially, it was a short cut to the Move to Folder window, and all I had to do was press ALT + 1, which was a very simple combo for my left hand. 

    Now that we've upgraded to 2013, I have absolutely no recollection of how I created this shortcut! I've looked into macros and Quick Steps and neither seems plausible.

    Anyone have any idea how I created this ALT + 1 shortcut?

  • Hi btothek,

    As I know, the "ALT+1" shortcut key corresponds to the sync option in the Outlook Quick Access Toolbar by default. 

    To change it as move email to a folder, please refer to the following steps to customize your quick access toolbar:

    1. Click the arrow in the upper right corner of Outlook like below
    2. Choose "More Commands"
    3. Modify choose commands from to "All Commands"
    4. Find the "Move to Folder" command(or other commands you need) and add it to your quick access toolbar
    5. Modify the order of the quick access toolbar and put Move to Folder first
    6. Click OK to save and restart Outlook client
