Enhancements in JAWS 2022.2206.9 (June 2022)
 
The following is a list of improvements made between the April 2022 release and the June 2022 update.
 
Notification History
 
In JAWS 2021, we introduced a keystroke for quickly announcing the most recent notification. However, due to the sheer volume of notifications that can
potentially be received on a daily basis depending on the applications in use, there was no easy way to review prior notifications you may have missed.
 
JAWS and Fusion 2022 now allows you to display a history of recently received notifications and gives you more control over which notifications you hear
or whether they are displayed in braille. For example, you may want JAWS to announce notifications from an application only if they include specific text,
or play a sound instead of interrupting you with a spoken message. You can even choose to exclude specific notifications from appearing in the recent notifications
list. For instance, there may be certain repetitive messages you may want to hear, such as notifications from Edge confirming the loading status of a page,
but you may not want these messages cluttering up your history.
 
To open the Notification History dialog box, press INSERT+SPACEBAR, followed by N. This feature can also be accessed from the Utilities menu in the JAWS
main window, or through the Run JAWS Manager dialog box (INSERT+F2). Once open, focus is placed in a list containing notifications received from Windows
and applications during the past 24 hours, as long as JAWS or Fusion was running. Use the ARROW keys to navigate and review items in the list. Pressing
the APPLICATIONS key on the selected notification opens a context menu where you can choose to create a rule to customize how it is spoken or shown in
braille , or don't show the selected notification at all in the history. When you are finished reviewing notifications, press ESC to close the Notification
History.
 
You can also access the Notification History using the Voice Assistant by saying "Hey Sharky, Notification History," or "Hey Sharky, Notifications."
 
If you only want to hear the most recent notification without opening a dialog box, press INSERT+SPACEBAR, followed by SHIFT+N.
 
For more details on creating and managing your own notification rules, refer to the Notification History topic in the JAWS Help.
 
Other Changes
list of 19 items
• You can now say "Hey Sharky, Say Version" or "Hey Sharky, What Version," to get the version of the current application. This is the same as pressing
CTRL+INSERT+V.
• Addressed reported issues where JAWS was not working reliably with iTunes.
• Resolved a reported issue where a script load error was displayed when attempting to open the Math Viewer or Math Editor to view or edit an equation.
• When activating a button on a web page that opens a modal dialog, such as a calendar, resolved an issue where JAWS was reading the entire contents of
the dialog all at once as soon as it gained focus.
• Added a new Quick Settings option, Indicate text inside INS and DEL Elements, which is on by default. When enabled, JAWS or Fusion indicates inserted
or deleted text on web pages as you navigate with the Virtual Cursor.
• In addition to web browsers, JAWS and Fusion now announce live region updates in all applications where they are supported. In situations where you need
to turn off these announcements, open Settings Center and search for "Announce live region updates." This option can be configured for all applications,
or for a specific app or website domain.
• If Forms Mode is set to Manual, addressed a reported issue where Forms Mode was turning off automatically instead of remaining active when moving away
from edit fields.
• Resolved issues navigating tables on web pages containing multiple header rows.
• Added Keyboard Help (INSERT+1) for the commands to move to a prior heading level (SHIFT+1 through 6).
• When using the mouse to visually select text in Outlook messages while running JAWS or Fusion, resolved an issue where pressing CTRL+C was not copying
the selected text to the Clipboard as expected unless text was selected using the keyboard.
• Resolved a reported issue in Outlook where JAWS was saying "read only edit" when opening a message. You now only hear "read only edit" if the Messages
Automatically Read Quick Settings option is turned off, so you know when you move in to the message.
• When typing in the body of a new message in Outlook and you type the @ symbol followed by part of a user's name to open the @Mentions menu, JAWS now
reads the position and total number of names in the list of suggestions.
• After using the JAWS Math Editor to insert an equation in to a Word document, addressed a reported issue where the application window was no longer maximized.
• When inserting a text box into a Word document, addressed an issue where JAWS was not displaying descriptions of the different text box types in braille.
• In response to customer feedback, the INSERT+C command is now available in the Office 365 spell checker to read the current spelling error in context.
• Addressed an issue with the Playback tab of the Change System Sounds dialog box where JAWS was not correctly reading the list of devices.
• Resolved an issue with Thorian Reader, an app for reading ePub books, where JAWS was not able to focus on descriptions of images when selecting the link
to view the description.
• Resolved an issue where the feature to help Avoid speech cut off when using Bluetooth headphones or some sound cards, accessed from Setting Center, was
not working as expected over a remote Citrix connection.
• Resolved a reported issue with navigating ribbon controls in a specific application used by several customers in France.

On the message itself, for you to change the account you are sending from, hit alt - m. that will trigger the from button on the message pane. your window must be maximized or a certain size to see that from button.

when you are done with the message, hit alt - s, that will trigger the send action. n that button as what i mentioned earlier

to trigger the send action or you have multiple unsend messages in your outbox, in the main outlook window, hit the follow key.
alt - j a

to trigger send and receive in outlook, both send and receive action, do hit ctrl - m

to see the send and receive progress, hit alt - j p

To stop the problem, find the outbox and delete all messages in it. Then send mail only from your other address. Don't even bother entering your password. Just close the dialog with escape and use your other e-mail provider until you resolve the problem.

Do you know someone who can follow instructions such as I wrote? Even if the person doesn't understand why these things are done, if someone knows how to work with web sites in terms of working with forms, they can do what is needed.

Or, you can use the Windows Mail app for now. You don't need an application specific password for it.

Subject: Re: [TechTalk] Outbox.

If messages are stuck in the outbox in e-mail programs I've used, the program asks if you want to send them at some point, or if you issue a general send/receive command, it will send them if it can.

Thunderbird asks if you want to send unsent messages when you open the program. Outlook likely does something like that but whether it does or not, it very likely would send them when you issue a send/receive command.

Does Outlook have a send later command that you might accidentally be executing when you mean to execute a send command? Thunderbird has a send later command, control shift enter. the send immediately command is control enter. At some point, those using the keyboard are likely to accidentally issue control shift enter instead of enter.

Not using Outlook, I'm asking questions and raising possibilities that may be useful.

Re: Mail App Tutorial by David Moore

There is no meaningful difference between the two.  The main advantage to Thunderbird portable is that you can put it on any machine you want and have a backup.  In other words, suppose you set up an account  and have an address book.  When the program is working and set up as you wish, you would make a backup, just copy the folder containing the program somewhere else.  then, if the copy of the program you are using becomes corrupted, you wouldn't have to troubleshoot in any way.  You could just delete the folder and copy the folder from the backup location to where you usually keep the program.

As I understand it, you can copy all the information such as account information and the address book from one installed Thunderbird to another on another machine and I would think you could back up the information and use it in an installed copy on any machine.  I don't think it is difficult, I think you just copy a folder in the program.  That's fine if people want to do that.  I just want to copy the folder containing the entire program from wherever it is to wherever I want it, and to just delete a corrupt copy and place a copy a good copy in that location if a copy I am using becomes corrupted.

I'm sure there are tutorials about Thunderbird.  I'll let others discuss that.

If the Windows 10 Mail app meets your needs and you want to use it, that's fine.  But keep in mind that it displays messages with the most recent at the top of the list and the oldest at the bottom.  To read messages in logical order, you will have to start at the bottom of the list and move up the list.  I haven't seen any way to change the order. 

also, in the people app, I see no way to export contacts using a comma separated values format nor do I see a way to import an existing list of contacts using such a format.  Without this ability, if you have contacts in a different program that you want to import, I wouldn't use the program.

I think Thunderbird Portable is a much better choice.  You can have the list of messages displayed in the order you want and you can import address bookss.  If I'm wrong and you can import address books and export them, and others explain it, that's fine.  But it looks to me as though you are limited to importing and exporting addresses from online accounts such as if you use GMail in the web interface and you keep your address book  in the online GMail web interface account.  If so, this is a serious limitation and it should be discussed.

Here you go:

 

Here is the start of the tutorial.
Tutorial on Using the Mail, People, and Calendar Apps.
By
David Moore
All key commands for all three apps, Mail, People, and Calendar, are at the
end of this tutorial.
Intruduction:

 

 I will Let you know this first. When you import your email accounts into
the win10 Mail app,
your contacts are automatically imported into the People app. All calendar
information, is imported into the Calendar app.
So, if you want to work with your contacts, you have to do so in the people
app and not the mail app. Think of it like this. Three apps work together to
give you that MS outlook client experience.
The people app has all of your contacts. The mail app is where you work with
and send your email messages. The Calendar app has all of your appointments
and much more.
Now, while you are in the win10 mail app, you can switch to the Calendar app
or the People app.
 Many of the commands are the same as in WLM.
Mail for Windows 10 supports most types of email services.  You can add any
of these Microsoft accounts:
Exchange, Office 365, Outlook.com, Hotmail, Live.com, and MSN.com.  You can
also add any of these accounts:
Gmail, Yahoo Mail, iCloud, or an account with a POP or IMAP server.

 

Section One
Launching the Windows 10 Mail App
So, let us consider how you can launch the mail app for the first time. The
way I did it, was to press the windows key or CTRL+Escape and type mail. I
heard windows mail app trusted windows store app.
Now, press enter, and the mail app will open. There you go, you have
launched the mail app for the first time. The first time you open Mail,
you'll land on the Welcome screen. Press Enter on Get Started. Now, you are
ready to start using the Win10 Mail App. If you have a Microsoft Account,
your MS email account should already be imported into the mail app.

 

Section Two:
Putting the Mail, Calendar, and People apps on your Desktop, or pinning them
to your taskbar:
Finally, let us begin to learn how to use these three apps.
You may want to pin all three apps, Mail, Calendar, and People, to your
taskbar, or put them on your desktop as short cuts.
To put them as short cuts on your Desktop, press Windows key+R to open the
run dialog.
just type:
shell:appsfolder
In a second, all of your apps will be in a list. Just press the first letter
of the one you want until you hear, Mail, for example.
Now, press your applications key or Shift+F10.
Now, press the up arrow key once to hear:
Create short cut.
Enter on that, and you will hear:
Short cut cannot be created here, do you want to put it on the desktop
instead?
Just press enter, and the Mail app will be on your Desktop.
To pen it to the taskbar, just press the Windows Key or CTRL+Escape and type
Mail, for example.
When you hear Mail, just press the appllications key or Shift+F10 and arrow
down to:
Pin to taskbar and press enter.
The Mail app will be on your Taskbar.
You can do the same for the Calendar and People apps.

 

Section Three
A Few Key Commands to get started:
 Here are a few commands to use the mail app. Tab key: The tab key will get
you anywhere you need to go in the mail app. Also, F6 will take you to
different sections of the app. These three apps, mail, people, and calendar
apps have been made so accessible, that you can use the PC cursor with JAWS.
Also, no object navigation needs to be done in these three apps with NVDA.
Narrator works great as well.
When you read messages with Narrator, Scan mode needs to be activated by
pressing:
Caps Lock+Spacebar.
That command toggles the Scan Mode on and off with Narrator.
You only want to turn on Scan Mode to read messages.
You want it off the rest of the time. Even when you type a message, Scan
Mode needs to be turnned off.
Scan Mode is just for reading.
When a message is opened with JAWS, you are put in a virtual viewer so you
can use the virtual cursor, just like in a web page.
Now, to work with messages:
 to send your message, press
alt+S.
To reply to a message:
press ctrl+R.
to forward a message:
press CTRL+F.
to create a new message:
press CTRL+N.
As you type the email address, choices will populate to choose from.
To insert an attachment, press Alt+I.
You can then brows for the file you want to attach.
All other key commands for all three of these apps, will be put at the end
of this tutorial.

 

Section Four:
Importing your first account into the Mail App
Now, let us add our first account.
From the list of messages for your MS account, tab to manage accounts and
press enter.
If you do not have an MS email account imported in to the Mail app, just Tab
to Manage Accounts and press enter.
 Next, tab to the Add account button and press enter.
 You will be in a list of account types you can add. In the Choose an
account dialog, use the Down Arrow key to go through the list of account
types (Outlook.com, Exchange, Google, Yahoo Mail, and so
on). When you hear the name of your account type, press Enter. For example,
if you want to add a Gmail account, press enter on Google. Next, Enter the
email address for the account that you want to add. Now, tab to the password
box, and enter your password.
Press the Tab key to move to the Sign in button and press enter.
 Now, press enter again on the:
 done button.
Your email account should import into the Mail app in seconds, and your
emails will be in your in box from the last three months.
 Now, if it does not work to import an account by choosing Google, for
example, any account will import into this choice:
Go to the account choice:
other account, IMAP or POP.
Any account, Pop or IMAP, will import under this choice, even a Google
account.
Only a few POP email Accounts will have to be imported by hand with all of
the settings.
For most accounts, your email and password will be enough to import the
account.
The last account choice, is the advanced account. Enter on this last choice
if you need to enter in all of your account settings by hand.
The only reason why you need the advanced account choice is to import a few
older POP 3 accounts and set them up by hand.
To import all of your accounts:
Just follow the same instructions written above.
You will need to press enter on Manage Accounts, and enter on Add account,
for each account you import.
It is important that you know that your contacts for your accounts, are
imported into the People app.
You can get to the People App right from the Mail app.
Also, all calendar data partaning to your accounts, is imported into the
Calendar App.
This is how all three apps work together to give you the entire Email Client
experience.
After you add your accounts, notice in the manage accounts menu, you will
see a choice to link accounts. This means, that you could have all messages
from all of your accounts go into one inbox. I would not do this. Each
account should have its own inbox.
Now, let us press enter on one of the accounts that you just added and see
what happens.
If you press enter on one of your accounts, there is a choice to delete the
account if you decide you do not want it in the mail app anymore.
Also, if you press enter on the sync settings, you will see that your emails
from three months ago will import. You can change this if you want.
Also, You can change some settings about how the emails are synced in the
mail app, but I would not mess with that at all.
Now, just press escape to get out of that, and you will be back in your list
of accounts. Press escape to close the manage accounts pane.
We are all done with the Manage accounts option.

 

Section Five:
Navigating the Maiol App with the Tab Key
Now, we have all of our accounts imported intothe Mail App.
Make sure that you are on a folder list of messages for one of your
accounts.
A list of messages will be our starting point, and we will begin to tab.
Now I will Tab.
I am on my list of emails for my MS Outlook account.
Tabbing:
I hear Navigation button collapsed.
You want to press enter to hear:
Navigation button expanded.
If you do not do this, you will not see everything in the Mail app.
Tab again, and you hear:
New Mail Button.
This is what you activate by pressing the key command:
CTRL+N
You do not need this button.
Tab: and you hear:
Manage accounts.
That is where we just were when you imported and customized all of your
email accounts.
Tab:
You will see a list of all of your accounts once you import them into the
Mail app.
If you press enter on an account, the In Box of messages for that account
will open and you are put in the inbox of messages.
 Now, we will tab from your list of accounts.
You have Folders Button.
Sub Section:
Folders Button.
When you press enter on Folders Button, there is a lot you can do in here.
In this Sub Section, We will talk about all you can do after you press enter
on Folders Button.
Press enter on Folders Button:
The first thing you will be on, is a virticle list of all of your folders
for that email account.
You can just up and down arrow to the folder you want, and press enter.
You are then put right in the list of messages for that folder.
Instead of pressing enter on a folder, if you tab once, you can press enter
on:
Create New Folder
As soon as you press enter, you have to type in the name of the new folder.
This will create a new folder for that account.
This is all in the Folders Button.
Press enter on Folders Button, again, if you are not still in that pane.
On your list of folders, you can arrow to a folder, and press:
Applications Key or Shift+F10.
You can now down arrow through the following choices:
Add to Favorites Button
Pressing Enter will put that folder on your favorites list of folders, so
you do not have to keep coming into the Folders Button to find a folder.
Next choice when pressing applications Key:
, Create new subfolder Button
Pressing enter on that choice, will allow you to create a sub folder under
that main folder you arrowed to.
As soon as you press enter, you have to type in the name of the sub folder,
and press enter.
The third choice:
 Rename Button
The fourth choice:
Delete Button
Pressing enter there wil delete the folder.
Fifth Choice:
Move Button
Sixth Choice:
 Empty folder Button
Seventh and last Choice:
Pin to Start Button
To review:
When you arrow to a folder, you can press:
Applications Key or Shift+F10,
and you get a menu of seven choices listed above.
You can press enter on any of those choices to do the action that it says.
We are all done with the Folders Button.
Now, make sure that you are on the Folders Button, and we will start tabbing
again.
If you tab from the Folders Button,
You are on your list of Favorite Folders I mentioned.
You can just arrow down through this list of folders that you chose to be
your favorite folders.
You do not have to enter on the Folders Button to get to these.
They are right here in a list.
I have my In Box folder, Sent Folder, Trash Folder, and a Saved folder that
I created, in my Favorites list.
I keep those four folders in that favorites list, so I do not have to keep
pressing enter on the Folders Button to get to those Folders.
I can just tab over to this list of four folders that I use the most.
Pressing enter on one of those four folders will put me right in the list of
messages for that folder.
You always get put right on the list of messages when you enter on any
folder.
Now, we will tab from this favorites list, and we get:
Moore Button.
This is the exact copy of the Folders Button LOL!
Forget the More Button LOL!
Tab again:
Switch to Calendar Button:
Tab:
Switch to People Button:
Pressing enter on one of those buttons, will Open one of those apps.
You can have all three opened at the same time.
Tab:
Settings Button:

 

Sub Section:
We have important stuff here, if we press enter on Settings Button, so this
will be another sub section, like Folders Button.
Settings Button
Press Enter on Settings Button.
Now, let us look at the settings in the mail app. There are some settings
that you might want to change or work with in these groups of settings . The
two groups of settings you should open are the reading and signature
settings. Do not mess with the other groups of settings.
Reading Settings
There are two choices you might want to change in this settings group.
You can check or uncheck carrot browsing.
I would leave carrot browsing unchecked in the reading settings group.
Now, in this reading group, there is also a button that turns on and off
conversation view.
You definitely want this button checked, because your messages will be
grouped into their respective threads.
You can delete the entire thread if your messages are in conversation view.
Press enter on the back button to close the reading group.
Each group of Settings has a back button you can press enter on to get out
of that group, and you are taken back to the groups of settings.
Signature Settings Group:
This is the only other group of settings where you need to do anything.
Press Enter on Signature Settings.
In here, you can add a signature, or check all accounts to have the same
signature
If you check to have a signature, and press Tab, there is a signature that
is there by default.
 It says:
sent from mail for windows 10.
If you want to create your own signature, check the signature, and over
right that default signature to add your own signature you want to appear
after every message that you send.
 You can have different signatures for each account, or have the same
signature for all accounts by checking all accounts.
If you want no signature, you can just press Spacebar to uncheck the
signature toggle.
Press the Back Button, to get out of the Signature Settings Group.
If you press:
Escape
You are back on the Settings Button, where we were tabbing across the Mail
App.
That is pretty much all I would worry about in settings.
There are just a few more tabs, before we are back to the list of messages.
Tab from Settings Button:
There is a search edit box.
If you type any name, or phrase, and so on in that search box,
it will narrow down the list of email messages that have that Name or phrase
in them.
This is a great way to find a particular message very quickly.
I use this a lot.
You can get right to that search box,
by pressing:
CTRL+E
You do not have to tab to that LOL!
Tab, and you have:
Sync this View Button.
If you press that, your messages will load more quickly, but they load
quickly anyway for me, and I do not have to press enter on that:
sync this View button.
Tab again, and you have:
Enter Selection Mode Button.
This is important.
When you press enter on that button, you are on your list of messages in
that folder, but now, there is a difference.
There is now a check box before each message that you can press spacebar on
to check that message. You can check as many messages as you want.
Now, if you shift tab twice, you are back to where the:
Enter sellection Mode Button was.
Now, there is a check box there that says, Select all, check box not
checked.
you can press spacebar to check all of your messages. You have to tab twice
to get back to the list of messages, but now, they are all checked.
After you check messages, you can press the:
applications Key or Shift+F10
and you will have the following choices:
Archive, Delete, Move, and a few less important choices in that context
menu.
If you press enter on delete, all messages that are selected will be
deleted. If you press enter on move, your list of all folders come up, and
you can move your selected messages to another folder.
Just press enter on the folder, and the selected messages are moved to that
folder.

 

Section Six:
Working with your messages:
Now, we can start working with with our email messages for what ever account
you pick from the list of accounts. All the accounts will be in a virticle
list, and you just press enter on what ever account you want to work with,
and you will be placed in the inbox and the messages will load.
Here we go LOL!
Let us arrow through the messages in the inbox and read some of our
messages.
Just enter on the message you want to open. To read messages with NVDA, you
must be in brows mode.
When you type a message, you must be in focus mode.
The only time you want to be in Brows Mode, is to read the messages. To
attach a file to the message, for example, you want to be in Focus mode with
NVDA.
With Narrator, you want to be in scan mode to read messages.
To do everything else, even type a message, you need to turn off scan mode.
Narrator works very well with the mail app.
 Now, with JAWS, you are put in a virtual environment just like on the
Internet. The virtual PC cursor, will allow you to select and copy
information that is right in the message.
when you are done reading that message, just press escape to get out of the
message and back to the list of messages
You do not have to do anything with JAWS to do all that you want to do in
the mail app, even type a message.
 Now, let me give you some important key commands right here.
tab gets you anywhere in the mail app you want to be. Tabbing will get you
to the list of your accounts, and the folders button, that you enter on to
get a full list of folders for that account. When you are on the list of
folders, tab to the more button and press enter to do more with your
folders, like create a new folder. To create a sub folder for a particular
folder Tab to the more button again, and press enter. Down arrow to creat a
sub folder. and arrow to which folder you want to create the sub folder for
and tab to create, and press enter. . Now, you can type the name of the sub
folder you want, and press enter. That is how you create a sub folder of a
folder that is already there. When you are on a message in the list, you can
press the applications key or shift+F10 and get choices of what you can do
with that message. One of these choices is move. If you enter on move, you
will get a list of folders you can move that message to. I created a folder
called saved messages. So when I want to save a message, I just move the
message to my saved messages folder. If you press delete, the message goes
in the trash folder. To send a message, press ctrl+N. You are put in the to:
edit box. Just type in the email, tab to subject, and tab to write your
message. To send a message, press Alt+S, and you are back on the list of
messages in your inbox. After you open a message and read it, you can reply
to it by pressing CTRL+R. Just type your message, and press alt+S to send
your reply. You will be in the list of messages, and just press the delete
key to delete that message. To forward a message, just press ctrl+F. To
spell check your message before sending, just press F7.
Tabs on the ribbon of the mail app:
Here we go with the ribbon. When you are in a message, three tabs show up on
the ribbon. Just press the alt key to get to the ribbon. The first tab you
will hear is the format tab. Right arrow to the insert tab, and right arrow
again to the third and last tab, the options tab. Now, if you press alt a
second time while you are still in the mail app, you will be on the tab that
you were last working with. If you were working with the options tab lastly,
the options tab will show up, and you will have to left arrow to get back to
insert and format. You do wrap around in a circle with a couple of other
choices in there as you wrap. On any of these tabs, just press the down
arrow to get to all of the choices for that tab. Then, press tab to tab
through all of the choices. For example, to insert an attachment into an
email, press the alt key, and arrow to the insert tab. Then, press the down
arrow, and you are right on the files choice. It will not say attach, this
is very important. Pressing down arrow on the insert tab, allows you to
insert different things into your email. Remember, you can just press:
Alt+I to attach a file.
 To attach anything else, you must go to the insert tab on the ribbon. The
ribbon is not important, unless you want to insert different things into the
email, or if you want to format the email.
Other choices to insert, are table, link, and so on. These are different
things that you can insert in your email. Press enter on files, and you can
brows your computer to find a file to insert or attach, and press enter on
the open button. Now, you are put back on your message you are composing. If
you press Shift+tab one time, you will be on your file that you attached to
your email. That is how people will find your attachments. They will just
shift tab to hear all of the files you inserted or attached to your email.
Now, Use Shift+Tab again to move focus to the subject line, and press
Shift+Tab again to hear the sender’s name. In other words, when you are in a
message, press Shift+tab to hear all of the information like the subject,
the sender, the time and date, and so on. There are not key commands to read
this information to you like in other clients. When you finish reading the
message, press the Escape key to return to the message list. That is the
key. If you just press escape, you go back to your list of messages. If you
press delete on a message in the list, it goes to the trash folder right
away. Now, if you select some text in your email, just press alt, and arrow
to the format tab, and press down arrow to the format choices if you want to
format your email. just tab through the choices. There are many, you can do
about anything here to format your email text. For example, if you down
arrow on the format tab, there will be choices to bold, underline, and to do
other things to the text that you select in your email that you are
composing. Now, for the options tab, the third and last tab, you will not
need to use, but feel free to check out the options. The option for Spell
Checking, is the same as pressing F7 in your message. Now, here is the thing
about spell checking in the mail app. You can go to the win10 settings app,
by pressing windows+I to have win10 correct much of your spelling as you
type. This only works though, in a win10 app. The mail app qualifies for
that. So, in settings, arrow to the devices group and press enter. Then, go
to the type choice and press enter. Check two check boxes. The first says
something like correct spelling, and the second one says something like high
light words that are misspelled. Check those two check boxes and press
enter. Now, when you are in the mail app, most of the words will be
automatically corrected as you type them. However, this feature will not
correct all misspelled words. This is where you press F7 to do a total spell
check. Important: There is not a way to have the mail app spell check every
message automatically when you send it like with WLM. You definitely have to
spell check every message that you compose before you send it just like with
each document in Word.
Well, we have covered everything with the mail app itself.
Now, I will show you quickly how to use the people app and calendar app, and
then you can use all three apps together as one email client.
People app:
Launch the People app, and tab a few times. You will tab by a new button,
where you can manually enter the information for a new contact. If you tab
passed the new button, you will come to a list of contacts. You cannot use
first letter navigation to jump to a certain contact, but here is what you
can do. Tab one more time, and you will be in a list of letters of the
alphabet. Again, you cannot use first letter navigation, like you can now
use in the all apps. Just arrow down to the letter you want, and shift+tab
back to the list of contact starting with that letter. Find the name you
want, and tab a few more times. There will be an edit where you can edit the
contact's information. Tab passed that, and you will come to profile. Tab
one more time, and you will be on their email. To copy that email, you have
to press the applications key, or shift+F10, and press enter on copy. You
will then have that person's email copied to the clip board. You can go to
the mail app, and paste that into the to: edit box to send them an email.
That is it with the people app. Remember, your contacts are imported into
the people app. As you type an email into the mail app, the populated
choices come from the people app.
Calendar app:
Launch the calendar app, and press alt+ctrl+4 to get into month view. You
are put on a grid of days of the week. You will land on to day. It will say
the date as well. For example, you will hear Friday, October 28. You also
hear how many events are linked with that day, like birthday's of your
contacts and so on. Tab to each event, and press enter on the event to get
the details of the event. If you shift+tab, you will go back to the day of
those events. If you press right and left arrow, you will go forward a day
or back a day. Up arrow takes you a week before from that day, and downarrow
takes you a week ahead of that day. If you want to schedule an event for a
certain day, just press enter on that day, and a dialog will come up for you
to enter all of the information for the appointment or event, and there is
an okay or done button. There you go! That is how you read days, the events
for those days, and how to schedule an event for that day. That is about it
for the calendar app.

Well, I hope you get so much good out of this tutorial , and you can get a
lot out of using the mail app, people, and calendar apps. You can do a lot
with three apps. I would pin all three of them to the taskbar, and have them
all opened at the same time
Take care,
David Moore

Hello Gene

Thanks for your comments. What is the difference between thunderbird portable and thunderbird. I installed thunderbird but I do not quite understand how it works, so is there a tutorial?

Subject: Re: [TechTalk] Mail App Tutorial by David Moore

 

If the Windows 10 Mail app meets your needs and you want to use it, that's fine.  But keep in mind that it displays messages with the most recent at the top of the list and the oldest at the bottom.  To read messages in logical order, you will have to start at the bottom of the list and move up the list.  I haven't seen any way to change the order. 

also, in the people app, I see no way to export contacts using a comma separated values format nor do I see a way to import an existing list of contacts using such a format.  Without this ability, if you have contacts in a different program that you want to import, I wouldn't use the program.

I think Thunderbird Portable is a much better choice.  You can have the list of messages displayed in the order you want and you can import address bookss.  If I'm wrong and you can import address books and export them, and others explain it, that's fine.  But it looks to me as though you are limited to importing and exporting addresses from online accounts such as if you use GMail in the web interface and you keep your address book  in the online GMail web interface account.  If so, this is a serious limitation and it should be discussed.

Here is the start of the tutorial.
Tutorial on Using the Mail, People, and Calendar Apps.
By
David Moore
All key commands for all three apps, Mail, People, and Calendar, are at the
end of this tutorial.
Intruduction:

 

 I will Let you know this first. When you import your email accounts into
the win10 Mail app,
your contacts are automatically imported into the People app. All calendar
information, is imported into the Calendar app.
So, if you want to work with your contacts, you have to do so in the people
app and not the mail app. Think of it like this. Three apps work together to
give you that MS outlook client experience.
The people app has all of your contacts. The mail app is where you work with
and send your email messages. The Calendar app has all of your appointments
and much more.
Now, while you are in the win10 mail app, you can switch to the Calendar app
or the People app.
 Many of the commands are the same as in WLM.
Mail for Windows 10 supports most types of email services.  You can add any
of these Microsoft accounts:
Exchange, Office 365, Outlook.com, Hotmail, Live.com, and MSN.com.  You can
also add any of these accounts:
Gmail, Yahoo Mail, iCloud, or an account with a POP or IMAP server.

 

Section One
Launching the Windows 10 Mail App
So, let us consider how you can launch the mail app for the first time. The
way I did it, was to press the windows key or CTRL+Escape and type mail. I
heard windows mail app trusted windows store app.
Now, press enter, and the mail app will open. There you go, you have
launched the mail app for the first time. The first time you open Mail,
you'll land on the Welcome screen. Press Enter on Get Started. Now, you are
ready to start using the Win10 Mail App. If you have a Microsoft Account,
your MS email account should already be imported into the mail app.

 

Section Two:
Putting the Mail, Calendar, and People apps on your Desktop, or pinning them
to your taskbar:
Finally, let us begin to learn how to use these three apps.
You may want to pin all three apps, Mail, Calendar, and People, to your
taskbar, or put them on your desktop as short cuts.
To put them as short cuts on your Desktop, press Windows key+R to open the
run dialog.
just type:
shell:appsfolder
In a second, all of your apps will be in a list. Just press the first letter
of the one you want until you hear, Mail, for example.
Now, press your applications key or Shift+F10.
Now, press the up arrow key once to hear:
Create short cut.
Enter on that, and you will hear:
Short cut cannot be created here, do you want to put it on the desktop
instead?
Just press enter, and the Mail app will be on your Desktop.
To pen it to the taskbar, just press the Windows Key or CTRL+Escape and type
Mail, for example.
When you hear Mail, just press the appllications key or Shift+F10 and arrow
down to:
Pin to taskbar and press enter.
The Mail app will be on your Taskbar.
You can do the same for the Calendar and People apps.

 

Section Three
A Few Key Commands to get started:
 Here are a few commands to use the mail app. Tab key: The tab key will get
you anywhere you need to go in the mail app. Also, F6 will take you to
different sections of the app. These three apps, mail, people, and calendar
apps have been made so accessible, that you can use the PC cursor with JAWS.
Also, no object navigation needs to be done in these three apps with NVDA.
Narrator works great as well.
When you read messages with Narrator, Scan mode needs to be activated by
pressing:
Caps Lock+Spacebar.
That command toggles the Scan Mode on and off with Narrator.
You only want to turn on Scan Mode to read messages.
You want it off the rest of the time. Even when you type a message, Scan
Mode needs to be turnned off.
Scan Mode is just for reading.
When a message is opened with JAWS, you are put in a virtual viewer so you
can use the virtual cursor, just like in a web page.
Now, to work with messages:
 to send your message, press
alt+S.
To reply to a message:
press ctrl+R.
to forward a message:
press CTRL+F.
to create a new message:
press CTRL+N.
As you type the email address, choices will populate to choose from.
To insert an attachment, press Alt+I.
You can then brows for the file you want to attach.
All other key commands for all three of these apps, will be put at the end
of this tutorial.

 

Section Four:
Importing your first account into the Mail App
Now, let us add our first account.
From the list of messages for your MS account, tab to manage accounts and
press enter.
If you do not have an MS email account imported in to the Mail app, just Tab
to Manage Accounts and press enter.
 Next, tab to the Add account button and press enter.
 You will be in a list of account types you can add. In the Choose an
account dialog, use the Down Arrow key to go through the list of account
types (Outlook.com, Exchange, Google, Yahoo Mail, and so
on). When you hear the name of your account type, press Enter. For example,
if you want to add a Gmail account, press enter on Google. Next, Enter the
email address for the account that you want to add. Now, tab to the password
box, and enter your password.
Press the Tab key to move to the Sign in button and press enter.
 Now, press enter again on the:
 done button.
Your email account should import into the Mail app in seconds, and your
emails will be in your in box from the last three months.
 Now, if it does not work to import an account by choosing Google, for
example, any account will import into this choice:
Go to the account choice:
other account, IMAP or POP.
Any account, Pop or IMAP, will import under this choice, even a Google
account.
Only a few POP email Accounts will have to be imported by hand with all of
the settings.
For most accounts, your email and password will be enough to import the
account.
The last account choice, is the advanced account. Enter on this last choice
if you need to enter in all of your account settings by hand.
The only reason why you need the advanced account choice is to import a few
older POP 3 accounts and set them up by hand.
To import all of your accounts:
Just follow the same instructions written above.
You will need to press enter on Manage Accounts, and enter on Add account,
for each account you import.
It is important that you know that your contacts for your accounts, are
imported into the People app.
You can get to the People App right from the Mail app.
Also, all calendar data partaning to your accounts, is imported into the
Calendar App.
This is how all three apps work together to give you the entire Email Client
experience.
After you add your accounts, notice in the manage accounts menu, you will
see a choice to link accounts. This means, that you could have all messages
from all of your accounts go into one inbox. I would not do this. Each
account should have its own inbox.
Now, let us press enter on one of the accounts that you just added and see
what happens.
If you press enter on one of your accounts, there is a choice to delete the
account if you decide you do not want it in the mail app anymore.
Also, if you press enter on the sync settings, you will see that your emails
from three months ago will import. You can change this if you want.
Also, You can change some settings about how the emails are synced in the
mail app, but I would not mess with that at all.
Now, just press escape to get out of that, and you will be back in your list
of accounts. Press escape to close the manage accounts pane.
We are all done with the Manage accounts option.

 

Section Five:
Navigating the Maiol App with the Tab Key
Now, we have all of our accounts imported intothe Mail App.
Make sure that you are on a folder list of messages for one of your
accounts.
A list of messages will be our starting point, and we will begin to tab.
Now I will Tab.
I am on my list of emails for my MS Outlook account.
Tabbing:
I hear Navigation button collapsed.
You want to press enter to hear:
Navigation button expanded.
If you do not do this, you will not see everything in the Mail app.
Tab again, and you hear:
New Mail Button.
This is what you activate by pressing the key command:
CTRL+N
You do not need this button.
Tab: and you hear:
Manage accounts.
That is where we just were when you imported and customized all of your
email accounts.
Tab:
You will see a list of all of your accounts once you import them into the
Mail app.
If you press enter on an account, the In Box of messages for that account
will open and you are put in the inbox of messages.
 Now, we will tab from your list of accounts.
You have Folders Button.
Sub Section:
Folders Button.
When you press enter on Folders Button, there is a lot you can do in here.
In this Sub Section, We will talk about all you can do after you press enter
on Folders Button.
Press enter on Folders Button:
The first thing you will be on, is a virticle list of all of your folders
for that email account.
You can just up and down arrow to the folder you want, and press enter.
You are then put right in the list of messages for that folder.
Instead of pressing enter on a folder, if you tab once, you can press enter
on:
Create New Folder
As soon as you press enter, you have to type in the name of the new folder.
This will create a new folder for that account.
This is all in the Folders Button.
Press enter on Folders Button, again, if you are not still in that pane.
On your list of folders, you can arrow to a folder, and press:
Applications Key or Shift+F10.
You can now down arrow through the following choices:
Add to Favorites Button
Pressing Enter will put that folder on your favorites list of folders, so
you do not have to keep coming into the Folders Button to find a folder.
Next choice when pressing applications Key:
, Create new subfolder Button
Pressing enter on that choice, will allow you to create a sub folder under
that main folder you arrowed to.
As soon as you press enter, you have to type in the name of the sub folder,
and press enter.
The third choice:
 Rename Button
The fourth choice:
Delete Button
Pressing enter there wil delete the folder.
Fifth Choice:
Move Button
Sixth Choice:
 Empty folder Button
Seventh and last Choice:
Pin to Start Button
To review:
When you arrow to a folder, you can press:
Applications Key or Shift+F10,
and you get a menu of seven choices listed above.
You can press enter on any of those choices to do the action that it says.
We are all done with the Folders Button.
Now, make sure that you are on the Folders Button, and we will start tabbing
again.
If you tab from the Folders Button,
You are on your list of Favorite Folders I mentioned.
You can just arrow down through this list of folders that you chose to be
your favorite folders.
You do not have to enter on the Folders Button to get to these.
They are right here in a list.
I have my In Box folder, Sent Folder, Trash Folder, and a Saved folder that
I created, in my Favorites list.
I keep those four folders in that favorites list, so I do not have to keep
pressing enter on the Folders Button to get to those Folders.
I can just tab over to this list of four folders that I use the most.
Pressing enter on one of those four folders will put me right in the list of
messages for that folder.
You always get put right on the list of messages when you enter on any
folder.
Now, we will tab from this favorites list, and we get:
Moore Button.
This is the exact copy of the Folders Button LOL!
Forget the More Button LOL!
Tab again:
Switch to Calendar Button:
Tab:
Switch to People Button:
Pressing enter on one of those buttons, will Open one of those apps.
You can have all three opened at the same time.
Tab:
Settings Button:

 

Sub Section:
We have important stuff here, if we press enter on Settings Button, so this
will be another sub section, like Folders Button.
Settings Button
Press Enter on Settings Button.
Now, let us look at the settings in the mail app. There are some settings
that you might want to change or work with in these groups of settings . The
two groups of settings you should open are the reading and signature
settings. Do not mess with the other groups of settings.
Reading Settings
There are two choices you might want to change in this settings group.
You can check or uncheck carrot browsing.
I would leave carrot browsing unchecked in the reading settings group.
Now, in this reading group, there is also a button that turns on and off
conversation view.
You definitely want this button checked, because your messages will be
grouped into their respective threads.
You can delete the entire thread if your messages are in conversation view.
Press enter on the back button to close the reading group.
Each group of Settings has a back button you can press enter on to get out
of that group, and you are taken back to the groups of settings.
Signature Settings Group:
This is the only other group of settings where you need to do anything.
Press Enter on Signature Settings.
In here, you can add a signature, or check all accounts to have the same
signature
If you check to have a signature, and press Tab, there is a signature that
is there by default.
 It says:
sent from mail for windows 10.
If you want to create your own signature, check the signature, and over
right that default signature to add your own signature you want to appear
after every message that you send.
 You can have different signatures for each account, or have the same
signature for all accounts by checking all accounts.
If you want no signature, you can just press Spacebar to uncheck the
signature toggle.
Press the Back Button, to get out of the Signature Settings Group.
If you press:
Escape
You are back on the Settings Button, where we were tabbing across the Mail
App.
That is pretty much all I would worry about in settings.
There are just a few more tabs, before we are back to the list of messages.
Tab from Settings Button:
There is a search edit box.
If you type any name, or phrase, and so on in that search box,
it will narrow down the list of email messages that have that Name or phrase
in them.
This is a great way to find a particular message very quickly.
I use this a lot.
You can get right to that search box,
by pressing:
CTRL+E
You do not have to tab to that LOL!
Tab, and you have:
Sync this View Button.
If you press that, your messages will load more quickly, but they load
quickly anyway for me, and I do not have to press enter on that:
sync this View button.
Tab again, and you have:
Enter Selection Mode Button.
This is important.
When you press enter on that button, you are on your list of messages in
that folder, but now, there is a difference.
There is now a check box before each message that you can press spacebar on
to check that message. You can check as many messages as you want.
Now, if you shift tab twice, you are back to where the:
Enter sellection Mode Button was.
Now, there is a check box there that says, Select all, check box not
checked.
you can press spacebar to check all of your messages. You have to tab twice
to get back to the list of messages, but now, they are all checked.
After you check messages, you can press the:
applications Key or Shift+F10
and you will have the following choices:
Archive, Delete, Move, and a few less important choices in that context
menu.
If you press enter on delete, all messages that are selected will be
deleted. If you press enter on move, your list of all folders come up, and
you can move your selected messages to another folder.
Just press enter on the folder, and the selected messages are moved to that
folder.

 

Section Six:
Working with your messages:
Now, we can start working with with our email messages for what ever account
you pick from the list of accounts. All the accounts will be in a virticle
list, and you just press enter on what ever account you want to work with,
and you will be placed in the inbox and the messages will load.
Here we go LOL!
Let us arrow through the messages in the inbox and read some of our
messages.
Just enter on the message you want to open. To read messages with NVDA, you
must be in brows mode.
When you type a message, you must be in focus mode.
The only time you want to be in Brows Mode, is to read the messages. To
attach a file to the message, for example, you want to be in Focus mode with
NVDA.
With Narrator, you want to be in scan mode to read messages.
To do everything else, even type a message, you need to turn off scan mode.
Narrator works very well with the mail app.
 Now, with JAWS, you are put in a virtual environment just like on the
Internet. The virtual PC cursor, will allow you to select and copy
information that is right in the message.
when you are done reading that message, just press escape to get out of the
message and back to the list of messages
You do not have to do anything with JAWS to do all that you want to do in
the mail app, even type a message.
 Now, let me give you some important key commands right here.
tab gets you anywhere in the mail app you want to be. Tabbing will get you
to the list of your accounts, and the folders button, that you enter on to
get a full list of folders for that account. When you are on the list of
folders, tab to the more button and press enter to do more with your
folders, like create a new folder. To create a sub folder for a particular
folder Tab to the more button again, and press enter. Down arrow to creat a
sub folder. and arrow to which folder you want to create the sub folder for
and tab to create, and press enter. . Now, you can type the name of the sub
folder you want, and press enter. That is how you create a sub folder of a
folder that is already there. When you are on a message in the list, you can
press the applications key or shift+F10 and get choices of what you can do
with that message. One of these choices is move. If you enter on move, you
will get a list of folders you can move that message to. I created a folder
called saved messages. So when I want to save a message, I just move the
message to my saved messages folder. If you press delete, the message goes
in the trash folder. To send a message, press ctrl+N. You are put in the to:
edit box. Just type in the email, tab to subject, and tab to write your
message. To send a message, press Alt+S, and you are back on the list of
messages in your inbox. After you open a message and read it, you can reply
to it by pressing CTRL+R. Just type your message, and press alt+S to send
your reply. You will be in the list of messages, and just press the delete
key to delete that message. To forward a message, just press ctrl+F. To
spell check your message before sending, just press F7.
Tabs on the ribbon of the mail app:
Here we go with the ribbon. When you are in a message, three tabs show up on
the ribbon. Just press the alt key to get to the ribbon. The first tab you
will hear is the format tab. Right arrow to the insert tab, and right arrow
again to the third and last tab, the options tab. Now, if you press alt a
second time while you are still in the mail app, you will be on the tab that
you were last working with. If you were working with the options tab lastly,
the options tab will show up, and you will have to left arrow to get back to
insert and format. You do wrap around in a circle with a couple of other
choices in there as you wrap. On any of these tabs, just press the down
arrow to get to all of the choices for that tab. Then, press tab to tab
through all of the choices. For example, to insert an attachment into an
email, press the alt key, and arrow to the insert tab. Then, press the down
arrow, and you are right on the files choice. It will not say attach, this
is very important. Pressing down arrow on the insert tab, allows you to
insert different things into your email. Remember, you can just press:
Alt+I to attach a file.
 To attach anything else, you must go to the insert tab on the ribbon. The
ribbon is not important, unless you want to insert different things into the
email, or if you want to format the email.
Other choices to insert, are table, link, and so on. These are different
things that you can insert in your email. Press enter on files, and you can
brows your computer to find a file to insert or attach, and press enter on
the open button. Now, you are put back on your message you are composing. If
you press Shift+tab one time, you will be on your file that you attached to
your email. That is how people will find your attachments. They will just
shift tab to hear all of the files you inserted or attached to your email.
Now, Use Shift+Tab again to move focus to the subject line, and press
Shift+Tab again to hear the sender’s name. In other words, when you are in a
message, press Shift+tab to hear all of the information like the subject,
the sender, the time and date, and so on. There are not key commands to read
this information to you like in other clients. When you finish reading the
message, press the Escape key to return to the message list. That is the
key. If you just press escape, you go back to your list of messages. If you
press delete on a message in the list, it goes to the trash folder right
away. Now, if you select some text in your email, just press alt, and arrow
to the format tab, and press down arrow to the format choices if you want to
format your email. just tab through the choices. There are many, you can do
about anything here to format your email text. For example, if you down
arrow on the format tab, there will be choices to bold, underline, and to do
other things to the text that you select in your email that you are
composing. Now, for the options tab, the third and last tab, you will not
need to use, but feel free to check out the options. The option for Spell
Checking, is the same as pressing F7 in your message. Now, here is the thing
about spell checking in the mail app. You can go to the win10 settings app,
by pressing windows+I to have win10 correct much of your spelling as you
type. This only works though, in a win10 app. The mail app qualifies for
that. So, in settings, arrow to the devices group and press enter. Then, go
to the type choice and press enter. Check two check boxes. The first says
something like correct spelling, and the second one says something like high
light words that are misspelled. Check those two check boxes and press
enter. Now, when you are in the mail app, most of the words will be
automatically corrected as you type them. However, this feature will not
correct all misspelled words. This is where you press F7 to do a total spell
check. Important: There is not a way to have the mail app spell check every
message automatically when you send it like with WLM. You definitely have to
spell check every message that you compose before you send it just like with
each document in Word.
Well, we have covered everything with the mail app itself.
Now, I will show you quickly how to use the people app and calendar app, and
then you can use all three apps together as one email client.
People app:
Launch the People app, and tab a few times. You will tab by a new button,
where you can manually enter the information for a new contact. If you tab
passed the new button, you will come to a list of contacts. You cannot use
first letter navigation to jump to a certain contact, but here is what you
can do. Tab one more time, and you will be in a list of letters of the
alphabet. Again, you cannot use first letter navigation, like you can now
use in the all apps. Just arrow down to the letter you want, and shift+tab
back to the list of contact starting with that letter. Find the name you
want, and tab a few more times. There will be an edit where you can edit the
contact's information. Tab passed that, and you will come to profile. Tab
one more time, and you will be on their email. To copy that email, you have
to press the applications key, or shift+F10, and press enter on copy. You
will then have that person's email copied to the clip board. You can go to
the mail app, and paste that into the to: edit box to send them an email.
That is it with the people app. Remember, your contacts are imported into
the people app. As you type an email into the mail app, the populated
choices come from the people app.
Calendar app:
Launch the calendar app, and press alt+ctrl+4 to get into month view. You
are put on a grid of days of the week. You will land on to day. It will say
the date as well. For example, you will hear Friday, October 28. You also
hear how many events are linked with that day, like birthday's of your
contacts and so on. Tab to each event, and press enter on the event to get
the details of the event. If you shift+tab, you will go back to the day of
those events. If you press right and left arrow, you will go forward a day
or back a day. Up arrow takes you a week before from that day, and downarrow
takes you a week ahead of that day. If you want to schedule an event for a
certain day, just press enter on that day, and a dialog will come up for you
to enter all of the information for the appointment or event, and there is
an okay or done button. There you go! That is how you read days, the events
for those days, and how to schedule an event for that day. That is about it
for the calendar app.

 

Here are many keyboard shortcuts to use all three apps:

Well, I hope you get so much good out of this tutorial , and you can get a
lot out of using the mail app, people, and calendar apps. You can do a lot
with three apps. I would pin all three of them to the taskbar, and have them
all opened at the same time
Take care,
David Moore

Thank you Mack.  I tried your rename folder solution.  I imagine I'll have to restart Windows for it to work.  We'll see.

Re: Mail App Tutorial by David Moore

If the Windows 10 Mail app meets your needs and you want to use it, that's fine.  But keep in mind that it displays messages with the most recent at the top of the list and the oldest at the bottom.  To read messages in logical order, you will have to start at the bottom of the list and move up the list.  I haven't seen any way to change the order. 

also, in the people app, I see no way to export contacts using a comma separated values format nor do I see a way to import an existing list of contacts using such a format.  Without this ability, if you have contacts in a different program that you want to import, I wouldn't use the program.

I think Thunderbird Portable is a much better choice.  You can have the list of messages displayed in the order you want and you can import address bookss.  If I'm wrong and you can import address books and export them, and others explain it, that's fine.  But it looks to me as though you are limited to importing and exporting addresses from online accounts such as if you use GMail in the web interface and you keep your address book  in the online GMail web interface account.  If so, this is a serious limitation and it should be discussed.

Here you go:
 
Here is the start of the tutorial.
Tutorial on Using the Mail, People, and Calendar Apps.
By
David Moore
All key commands for all three apps, Mail, People, and Calendar, are at the
end of this tutorial.
Intruduction:
 
 I will Let you know this first. When you import your email accounts into
the win10 Mail app,
your contacts are automatically imported into the People app. All calendar
information, is imported into the Calendar app.
So, if you want to work with your contacts, you have to do so in the people
app and not the mail app. Think of it like this. Three apps work together to
give you that MS outlook client experience.
The people app has all of your contacts. The mail app is where you work with
and send your email messages. The Calendar app has all of your appointments
and much more.
Now, while you are in the win10 mail app, you can switch to the Calendar app
or the People app.
 Many of the commands are the same as in WLM.
Mail for Windows 10 supports most types of email services.  You can add any
of these Microsoft accounts:
Exchange, Office 365, Outlook.com, Hotmail, Live.com, and MSN.com.  You can
also add any of these accounts:
Gmail, Yahoo Mail, iCloud, or an account with a POP or IMAP server.
 
Section One
Launching the Windows 10 Mail App
So, let us consider how you can launch the mail app for the first time. The
way I did it, was to press the windows key or CTRL+Escape and type mail. I
heard windows mail app trusted windows store app.
Now, press enter, and the mail app will open. There you go, you have
launched the mail app for the first time. The first time you open Mail,
you'll land on the Welcome screen. Press Enter on Get Started. Now, you are
ready to start using the Win10 Mail App. If you have a Microsoft Account,
your MS email account should already be imported into the mail app.
 
Section Two:
Putting the Mail, Calendar, and People apps on your Desktop, or pinning them
to your taskbar:
Finally, let us begin to learn how to use these three apps.
You may want to pin all three apps, Mail, Calendar, and People, to your
taskbar, or put them on your desktop as short cuts.
To put them as short cuts on your Desktop, press Windows key+R to open the
run dialog.
just type:
shell:appsfolder
In a second, all of your apps will be in a list. Just press the first letter
of the one you want until you hear, Mail, for example.
Now, press your applications key or Shift+F10.
Now, press the up arrow key once to hear:
Create short cut.
Enter on that, and you will hear:
Short cut cannot be created here, do you want to put it on the desktop
instead?
Just press enter, and the Mail app will be on your Desktop.
To pen it to the taskbar, just press the Windows Key or CTRL+Escape and type
Mail, for example.
When you hear Mail, just press the appllications key or Shift+F10 and arrow
down to:
Pin to taskbar and press enter.
The Mail app will be on your Taskbar.
You can do the same for the Calendar and People apps.
 
Section Three
A Few Key Commands to get started:
 Here are a few commands to use the mail app. Tab key: The tab key will get
you anywhere you need to go in the mail app. Also, F6 will take you to
different sections of the app. These three apps, mail, people, and calendar
apps have been made so accessible, that you can use the PC cursor with JAWS.
Also, no object navigation needs to be done in these three apps with NVDA.
Narrator works great as well.
When you read messages with Narrator, Scan mode needs to be activated by
pressing:
Caps Lock+Spacebar.
That command toggles the Scan Mode on and off with Narrator.
You only want to turn on Scan Mode to read messages.
You want it off the rest of the time. Even when you type a message, Scan
Mode needs to be turnned off.
Scan Mode is just for reading.
When a message is opened with JAWS, you are put in a virtual viewer so you
can use the virtual cursor, just like in a web page.
Now, to work with messages:
 to send your message, press
alt+S.
To reply to a message:
press ctrl+R.
to forward a message:
press CTRL+F.
to create a new message:
press CTRL+N.
As you type the email address, choices will populate to choose from.
To insert an attachment, press Alt+I.
You can then brows for the file you want to attach.
All other key commands for all three of these apps, will be put at the end
of this tutorial.
 
Section Four:
Importing your first account into the Mail App
Now, let us add our first account.
From the list of messages for your MS account, tab to manage accounts and
press enter.
If you do not have an MS email account imported in to the Mail app, just Tab
to Manage Accounts and press enter.
 Next, tab to the Add account button and press enter.
 You will be in a list of account types you can add. In the Choose an
account dialog, use the Down Arrow key to go through the list of account
types (Outlook.com, Exchange, Google, Yahoo Mail, and so
on). When you hear the name of your account type, press Enter. For example,
if you want to add a Gmail account, press enter on Google. Next, Enter the
email address for the account that you want to add. Now, tab to the password
box, and enter your password.
Press the Tab key to move to the Sign in button and press enter.
 Now, press enter again on the:
 done button.
Your email account should import into the Mail app in seconds, and your
emails will be in your in box from the last three months.
 Now, if it does not work to import an account by choosing Google, for
example, any account will import into this choice:
Go to the account choice:
other account, IMAP or POP.
Any account, Pop or IMAP, will import under this choice, even a Google
account.
Only a few POP email Accounts will have to be imported by hand with all of
the settings.
For most accounts, your email and password will be enough to import the
account.
The last account choice, is the advanced account. Enter on this last choice
if you need to enter in all of your account settings by hand.
The only reason why you need the advanced account choice is to import a few
older POP 3 accounts and set them up by hand.
To import all of your accounts:
Just follow the same instructions written above.
You will need to press enter on Manage Accounts, and enter on Add account,
for each account you import.
It is important that you know that your contacts for your accounts, are
imported into the People app.
You can get to the People App right from the Mail app.
Also, all calendar data partaning to your accounts, is imported into the
Calendar App.
This is how all three apps work together to give you the entire Email Client
experience.
After you add your accounts, notice in the manage accounts menu, you will
see a choice to link accounts. This means, that you could have all messages
from all of your accounts go into one inbox. I would not do this. Each
account should have its own inbox.
Now, let us press enter on one of the accounts that you just added and see
what happens.
If you press enter on one of your accounts, there is a choice to delete the
account if you decide you do not want it in the mail app anymore.
Also, if you press enter on the sync settings, you will see that your emails
from three months ago will import. You can change this if you want.
Also, You can change some settings about how the emails are synced in the
mail app, but I would not mess with that at all.
Now, just press escape to get out of that, and you will be back in your list
of accounts. Press escape to close the manage accounts pane.
We are all done with the Manage accounts option.
 
Section Five:
Navigating the Maiol App with the Tab Key
Now, we have all of our accounts imported intothe Mail App.
Make sure that you are on a folder list of messages for one of your
accounts.
A list of messages will be our starting point, and we will begin to tab.
Now I will Tab.
I am on my list of emails for my MS Outlook account.
Tabbing:
I hear Navigation button collapsed.
You want to press enter to hear:
Navigation button expanded.
If you do not do this, you will not see everything in the Mail app.
Tab again, and you hear:
New Mail Button.
This is what you activate by pressing the key command:
CTRL+N
You do not need this button.
Tab: and you hear:
Manage accounts.
That is where we just were when you imported and customized all of your
email accounts.
Tab:
You will see a list of all of your accounts once you import them into the
Mail app.
If you press enter on an account, the In Box of messages for that account
will open and you are put in the inbox of messages.
 Now, we will tab from your list of accounts.
You have Folders Button.
Sub Section:
Folders Button.
When you press enter on Folders Button, there is a lot you can do in here.
In this Sub Section, We will talk about all you can do after you press enter
on Folders Button.
Press enter on Folders Button:
The first thing you will be on, is a virticle list of all of your folders
for that email account.
You can just up and down arrow to the folder you want, and press enter.
You are then put right in the list of messages for that folder.
Instead of pressing enter on a folder, if you tab once, you can press enter
on:
Create New Folder
As soon as you press enter, you have to type in the name of the new folder.
This will create a new folder for that account.
This is all in the Folders Button.
Press enter on Folders Button, again, if you are not still in that pane.
On your list of folders, you can arrow to a folder, and press:
Applications Key or Shift+F10.
You can now down arrow through the following choices:
Add to Favorites Button
Pressing Enter will put that folder on your favorites list of folders, so
you do not have to keep coming into the Folders Button to find a folder.
Next choice when pressing applications Key:
, Create new subfolder Button
Pressing enter on that choice, will allow you to create a sub folder under
that main folder you arrowed to.
As soon as you press enter, you have to type in the name of the sub folder,
and press enter.
The third choice:
 Rename Button
The fourth choice:
Delete Button
Pressing enter there wil delete the folder.
Fifth Choice:
Move Button
Sixth Choice:
 Empty folder Button
Seventh and last Choice:
Pin to Start Button
To review:
When you arrow to a folder, you can press:
Applications Key or Shift+F10,
and you get a menu of seven choices listed above.
You can press enter on any of those choices to do the action that it says.
We are all done with the Folders Button.
Now, make sure that you are on the Folders Button, and we will start tabbing
again.
If you tab from the Folders Button,
You are on your list of Favorite Folders I mentioned.
You can just arrow down through this list of folders that you chose to be
your favorite folders.
You do not have to enter on the Folders Button to get to these.
They are right here in a list.
I have my In Box folder, Sent Folder, Trash Folder, and a Saved folder that
I created, in my Favorites list.
I keep those four folders in that favorites list, so I do not have to keep
pressing enter on the Folders Button to get to those Folders.
I can just tab over to this list of four folders that I use the most.
Pressing enter on one of those four folders will put me right in the list of
messages for that folder.
You always get put right on the list of messages when you enter on any
folder.
Now, we will tab from this favorites list, and we get:
Moore Button.
This is the exact copy of the Folders Button LOL!
Forget the More Button LOL!
Tab again:
Switch to Calendar Button:
Tab:
Switch to People Button:
Pressing enter on one of those buttons, will Open one of those apps.
You can have all three opened at the same time.
Tab:
Settings Button:
 
Sub Section:
We have important stuff here, if we press enter on Settings Button, so this
will be another sub section, like Folders Button.
Settings Button
Press Enter on Settings Button.
Now, let us look at the settings in the mail app. There are some settings
that you might want to change or work with in these groups of settings . The
two groups of settings you should open are the reading and signature
settings. Do not mess with the other groups of settings.
Reading Settings
There are two choices you might want to change in this settings group.
You can check or uncheck carrot browsing.
I would leave carrot browsing unchecked in the reading settings group.
Now, in this reading group, there is also a button that turns on and off
conversation view.
You definitely want this button checked, because your messages will be
grouped into their respective threads.
You can delete the entire thread if your messages are in conversation view.
Press enter on the back button to close the reading group.
Each group of Settings has a back button you can press enter on to get out
of that group, and you are taken back to the groups of settings.
Signature Settings Group:
This is the only other group of settings where you need to do anything.
Press Enter on Signature Settings.
In here, you can add a signature, or check all accounts to have the same
signature
If you check to have a signature, and press Tab, there is a signature that
is there by default.
 It says:
sent from mail for windows 10.
If you want to create your own signature, check the signature, and over
right that default signature to add your own signature you want to appear
after every message that you send.
 You can have different signatures for each account, or have the same
signature for all accounts by checking all accounts.
If you want no signature, you can just press Spacebar to uncheck the
signature toggle.
Press the Back Button, to get out of the Signature Settings Group.
If you press:
Escape
You are back on the Settings Button, where we were tabbing across the Mail
App.
That is pretty much all I would worry about in settings.
There are just a few more tabs, before we are back to the list of messages.
Tab from Settings Button:
There is a search edit box.
If you type any name, or phrase, and so on in that search box,
it will narrow down the list of email messages that have that Name or phrase
in them.
This is a great way to find a particular message very quickly.
I use this a lot.
You can get right to that search box,
by pressing:
CTRL+E
You do not have to tab to that LOL!
Tab, and you have:
Sync this View Button.
If you press that, your messages will load more quickly, but they load
quickly anyway for me, and I do not have to press enter on that:
sync this View button.
Tab again, and you have:
Enter Selection Mode Button.
This is important.
When you press enter on that button, you are on your list of messages in
that folder, but now, there is a difference.
There is now a check box before each message that you can press spacebar on
to check that message. You can check as many messages as you want.
Now, if you shift tab twice, you are back to where the:
Enter sellection Mode Button was.
Now, there is a check box there that says, Select all, check box not
checked.
you can press spacebar to check all of your messages. You have to tab twice
to get back to the list of messages, but now, they are all checked.
After you check messages, you can press the:
applications Key or Shift+F10
and you will have the following choices:
Archive, Delete, Move, and a few less important choices in that context
menu.
If you press enter on delete, all messages that are selected will be
deleted. If you press enter on move, your list of all folders come up, and
you can move your selected messages to another folder.
Just press enter on the folder, and the selected messages are moved to that
folder.
 
Section Six:
Working with your messages:
Now, we can start working with with our email messages for what ever account
you pick from the list of accounts. All the accounts will be in a virticle
list, and you just press enter on what ever account you want to work with,
and you will be placed in the inbox and the messages will load.
Here we go LOL!
Let us arrow through the messages in the inbox and read some of our
messages.
Just enter on the message you want to open. To read messages with NVDA, you
must be in brows mode.
When you type a message, you must be in focus mode.
The only time you want to be in Brows Mode, is to read the messages. To
attach a file to the message, for example, you want to be in Focus mode with
NVDA.
With Narrator, you want to be in scan mode to read messages.
To do everything else, even type a message, you need to turn off scan mode.
Narrator works very well with the mail app.
 Now, with JAWS, you are put in a virtual environment just like on the
Internet. The virtual PC cursor, will allow you to select and copy
information that is right in the message.
when you are done reading that message, just press escape to get out of the
message and back to the list of messages
You do not have to do anything with JAWS to do all that you want to do in
the mail app, even type a message.
 Now, let me give you some important key commands right here.
tab gets you anywhere in the mail app you want to be. Tabbing will get you
to the list of your accounts, and the folders button, that you enter on to
get a full list of folders for that account. When you are on the list of
folders, tab to the more button and press enter to do more with your
folders, like create a new folder. To create a sub folder for a particular
folder Tab to the more button again, and press enter. Down arrow to creat a
sub folder. and arrow to which folder you want to create the sub folder for
and tab to create, and press enter. . Now, you can type the name of the sub
folder you want, and press enter. That is how you create a sub folder of a
folder that is already there. When you are on a message in the list, you can
press the applications key or shift+F10 and get choices of what you can do
with that message. One of these choices is move. If you enter on move, you
will get a list of folders you can move that message to. I created a folder
called saved messages. So when I want to save a message, I just move the
message to my saved messages folder. If you press delete, the message goes
in the trash folder. To send a message, press ctrl+N. You are put in the to:
edit box. Just type in the email, tab to subject, and tab to write your
message. To send a message, press Alt+S, and you are back on the list of
messages in your inbox. After you open a message and read it, you can reply
to it by pressing CTRL+R. Just type your message, and press alt+S to send
your reply. You will be in the list of messages, and just press the delete
key to delete that message. To forward a message, just press ctrl+F. To
spell check your message before sending, just press F7.
Tabs on the ribbon of the mail app:
Here we go with the ribbon. When you are in a message, three tabs show up on
the ribbon. Just press the alt key to get to the ribbon. The first tab you
will hear is the format tab. Right arrow to the insert tab, and right arrow
again to the third and last tab, the options tab. Now, if you press alt a
second time while you are still in the mail app, you will be on the tab that
you were last working with. If you were working with the options tab lastly,
the options tab will show up, and you will have to left arrow to get back to
insert and format. You do wrap around in a circle with a couple of other
choices in there as you wrap. On any of these tabs, just press the down
arrow to get to all of the choices for that tab. Then, press tab to tab
through all of the choices. For example, to insert an attachment into an
email, press the alt key, and arrow to the insert tab. Then, press the down
arrow, and you are right on the files choice. It will not say attach, this
is very important. Pressing down arrow on the insert tab, allows you to
insert different things into your email. Remember, you can just press:
Alt+I to attach a file.
 To attach anything else, you must go to the insert tab on the ribbon. The
ribbon is not important, unless you want to insert different things into the
email, or if you want to format the email.
Other choices to insert, are table, link, and so on. These are different
things that you can insert in your email. Press enter on files, and you can
brows your computer to find a file to insert or attach, and press enter on
the open button. Now, you are put back on your message you are composing. If
you press Shift+tab one time, you will be on your file that you attached to
your email. That is how people will find your attachments. They will just
shift tab to hear all of the files you inserted or attached to your email.
Now, Use Shift+Tab again to move focus to the subject line, and press
Shift+Tab again to hear the sender’s name. In other words, when you are in a
message, press Shift+tab to hear all of the information like the subject,
the sender, the time and date, and so on. There are not key commands to read
this information to you like in other clients. When you finish reading the
message, press the Escape key to return to the message list. That is the
key. If you just press escape, you go back to your list of messages. If you
press delete on a message in the list, it goes to the trash folder right
away. Now, if you select some text in your email, just press alt, and arrow
to the format tab, and press down arrow to the format choices if you want to
format your email. just tab through the choices. There are many, you can do
about anything here to format your email text. For example, if you down
arrow on the format tab, there will be choices to bold, underline, and to do
other things to the text that you select in your email that you are
composing. Now, for the options tab, the third and last tab, you will not
need to use, but feel free to check out the options. The option for Spell
Checking, is the same as pressing F7 in your message. Now, here is the thing
about spell checking in the mail app. You can go to the win10 settings app,
by pressing windows+I to have win10 correct much of your spelling as you
type. This only works though, in a win10 app. The mail app qualifies for
that. So, in settings, arrow to the devices group and press enter. Then, go
to the type choice and press enter. Check two check boxes. The first says
something like correct spelling, and the second one says something like high
light words that are misspelled. Check those two check boxes and press
enter. Now, when you are in the mail app, most of the words will be
automatically corrected as you type them. However, this feature will not
correct all misspelled words. This is where you press F7 to do a total spell
check. Important: There is not a way to have the mail app spell check every
message automatically when you send it like with WLM. You definitely have to
spell check every message that you compose before you send it just like with
each document in Word.
Well, we have covered everything with the mail app itself.
Now, I will show you quickly how to use the people app and calendar app, and
then you can use all three apps together as one email client.
People app:
Launch the People app, and tab a few times. You will tab by a new button,
where you can manually enter the information for a new contact. If you tab
passed the new button, you will come to a list of contacts. You cannot use
first letter navigation to jump to a certain contact, but here is what you
can do. Tab one more time, and you will be in a list of letters of the
alphabet. Again, you cannot use first letter navigation, like you can now
use in the all apps. Just arrow down to the letter you want, and shift+tab
back to the list of contact starting with that letter. Find the name you
want, and tab a few more times. There will be an edit where you can edit the
contact's information. Tab passed that, and you will come to profile. Tab
one more time, and you will be on their email. To copy that email, you have
to press the applications key, or shift+F10, and press enter on copy. You
will then have that person's email copied to the clip board. You can go to
the mail app, and paste that into the to: edit box to send them an email.
That is it with the people app. Remember, your contacts are imported into
the people app. As you type an email into the mail app, the populated
choices come from the people app.
Calendar app:
Launch the calendar app, and press alt+ctrl+4 to get into month view. You
are put on a grid of days of the week. You will land on to day. It will say
the date as well. For example, you will hear Friday, October 28. You also
hear how many events are linked with that day, like birthday's of your
contacts and so on. Tab to each event, and press enter on the event to get
the details of the event. If you shift+tab, you will go back to the day of
those events. If you press right and left arrow, you will go forward a day
or back a day. Up arrow takes you a week before from that day, and downarrow
takes you a week ahead of that day. If you want to schedule an event for a
certain day, just press enter on that day, and a dialog will come up for you
to enter all of the information for the appointment or event, and there is
an okay or done button. There you go! That is how you read days, the events
for those days, and how to schedule an event for that day. That is about it
for the calendar app.
 
Here are many keyboard shortcuts to use all three apps:
 Account Manual Sync (Send and retrieve new mail)

Well, I hope you get so much good out of this tutorial , and you can get a
lot out of using the mail app, people, and calendar apps. You can do a lot
with three apps. I would pin all three of them to the taskbar, and have them
all opened at the same time
Take care,

Here you go:

Here is the start of the tutorial.
Tutorial on Using the Mail, People, and Calendar Apps.
By
David Moore
All key commands for all three apps, Mail, People, and Calendar, are at the
end of this tutorial.
Intruduction:

I will Let you know this first. When you import your email accounts into
the win10 Mail app,
your contacts are automatically imported into the People app. All calendar
information, is imported into the Calendar app.
So, if you want to work with your contacts, you have to do so in the people
app and not the mail app. Think of it like this. Three apps work together
to
give you that MS outlook client experience.
The people app has all of your contacts. The mail app is where you work
with
and send your email messages. The Calendar app has all of your appointments
and much more.
Now, while you are in the win10 mail app, you can switch to the Calendar
app
or the People app.
Many of the commands are the same as in WLM.
Mail for Windows 10 supports most types of email services. You can add any
of these Microsoft accounts:
Exchange, Office 365, Outlook.com, Hotmail, Live.com, and MSN.com. You can
also add any of these accounts:
Gmail, Yahoo Mail, iCloud, or an account with a POP or IMAP server.

Section One
Launching the Windows 10 Mail App
So, let us consider how you can launch the mail app for the first time. The
way I did it, was to press the windows key or CTRL+Escape and type mail. I
heard windows mail app trusted windows store app.
Now, press enter, and the mail app will open. There you go, you have
launched the mail app for the first time. The first time you open Mail,
you'll land on the Welcome screen. Press Enter on Get Started. Now, you are
ready to start using the Win10 Mail App. If you have a Microsoft Account,
your MS email account should already be imported into the mail app.

Section Two:
Putting the Mail, Calendar, and People apps on your Desktop, or pinning
them
to your taskbar:
Finally, let us begin to learn how to use these three apps.
You may want to pin all three apps, Mail, Calendar, and People, to your
taskbar, or put them on your desktop as short cuts.
To put them as short cuts on your Desktop, press Windows key+R to open the
run dialog.
just type:
shell:appsfolder
In a second, all of your apps will be in a list. Just press the first
letter
of the one you want until you hear, Mail, for example.
Now, press your applications key or Shift+F10.
Now, press the up arrow key once to hear:
Create short cut.
Enter on that, and you will hear:
Short cut cannot be created here, do you want to put it on the desktop
instead?
Just press enter, and the Mail app will be on your Desktop.
To pen it to the taskbar, just press the Windows Key or CTRL+Escape and
type
Mail, for example.
When you hear Mail, just press the appllications key or Shift+F10 and arrow
down to:
Pin to taskbar and press enter.
The Mail app will be on your Taskbar.
You can do the same for the Calendar and People apps.

Section Three
A Few Key Commands to get started:
Here are a few commands to use the mail app. Tab key: The tab key will get
you anywhere you need to go in the mail app. Also, F6 will take you to
different sections of the app. These three apps, mail, people, and calendar
apps have been made so accessible, that you can use the PC cursor with
JAWS.
Also, no object navigation needs to be done in these three apps with NVDA.
Narrator works great as well.
When you read messages with Narrator, Scan mode needs to be activated by
pressing:
Caps Lock+Spacebar.
That command toggles the Scan Mode on and off with Narrator.
You only want to turn on Scan Mode to read messages.
You want it off the rest of the time. Even when you type a message, Scan
Mode needs to be turnned off.
Scan Mode is just for reading.
When a message is opened with JAWS, you are put in a virtual viewer so you
can use the virtual cursor, just like in a web page.
Now, to work with messages:
to send your message, press
alt+S.
To reply to a message:
press ctrl+R.
to forward a message:
press CTRL+F.
to create a new message:
press CTRL+N.
As you type the email address, choices will populate to choose from.
To insert an attachment, press Alt+I.
You can then brows for the file you want to attach.
All other key commands for all three of these apps, will be put at the end
of this tutorial.

Section Four:
Importing your first account into the Mail App
Now, let us add our first account.
From the list of messages for your MS account, tab to manage accounts and
press enter.
If you do not have an MS email account imported in to the Mail app, just
Tab
to Manage Accounts and press enter.
Next, tab to the Add account button and press enter.
You will be in a list of account types you can add. In the Choose an
account dialog, use the Down Arrow key to go through the list of account
types (Outlook.com, Exchange, Google, Yahoo Mail, and so
on). When you hear the name of your account type, press Enter. For example,
if you want to add a Gmail account, press enter on Google. Next, Enter the
email address for the account that you want to add. Now, tab to the
password
box, and enter your password.
Press the Tab key to move to the Sign in button and press enter.
Now, press enter again on the:
done button.
Your email account should import into the Mail app in seconds, and your
emails will be in your in box from the last three months.
Now, if it does not work to import an account by choosing Google, for
example, any account will import into this choice:
Go to the account choice:
other account, IMAP or POP.
Any account, Pop or IMAP, will import under this choice, even a Google
account.
Only a few POP email Accounts will have to be imported by hand with all of
the settings.
For most accounts, your email and password will be enough to import the
account.
The last account choice, is the advanced account. Enter on this last choice
if you need to enter in all of your account settings by hand.
The only reason why you need the advanced account choice is to import a few
older POP 3 accounts and set them up by hand.
To import all of your accounts:
Just follow the same instructions written above.
You will need to press enter on Manage Accounts, and enter on Add account,
for each account you import.
It is important that you know that your contacts for your accounts, are
imported into the People app.
You can get to the People App right from the Mail app.
Also, all calendar data partaning to your accounts, is imported into the
Calendar App.
This is how all three apps work together to give you the entire Email
Client
experience.
After you add your accounts, notice in the manage accounts menu, you will
see a choice to link accounts. This means, that you could have all messages
from all of your accounts go into one inbox. I would not do this. Each
account should have its own inbox.
Now, let us press enter on one of the accounts that you just added and see
what happens.
If you press enter on one of your accounts, there is a choice to delete the
account if you decide you do not want it in the mail app anymore.
Also, if you press enter on the sync settings, you will see that your
emails
from three months ago will import. You can change this if you want.
Also, You can change some settings about how the emails are synced in the
mail app, but I would not mess with that at all.
Now, just press escape to get out of that, and you will be back in your
list
of accounts. Press escape to close the manage accounts pane.
We are all done with the Manage accounts option.

Section Five:
Navigating the Maiol App with the Tab Key
Now, we have all of our accounts imported intothe Mail App.
Make sure that you are on a folder list of messages for one of your
accounts.
A list of messages will be our starting point, and we will begin to tab.
Now I will Tab.
I am on my list of emails for my MS Outlook account.
Tabbing:
I hear Navigation button collapsed.
You want to press enter to hear:
Navigation button expanded.
If you do not do this, you will not see everything in the Mail app.
Tab again, and you hear:
New Mail Button.
This is what you activate by pressing the key command:
CTRL+N
You do not need this button.
Tab: and you hear:
Manage accounts.
That is where we just were when you imported and customized all of your
email accounts.
Tab:
You will see a list of all of your accounts once you import them into the
Mail app.
If you press enter on an account, the In Box of messages for that account
will open and you are put in the inbox of messages.
Now, we will tab from your list of accounts.
You have Folders Button.
Sub Section:
Folders Button.
When you press enter on Folders Button, there is a lot you can do in here.
In this Sub Section, We will talk about all you can do after you press
enter
on Folders Button.
Press enter on Folders Button:
The first thing you will be on, is a virticle list of all of your folders
for that email account.
You can just up and down arrow to the folder you want, and press enter.
You are then put right in the list of messages for that folder.
Instead of pressing enter on a folder, if you tab once, you can press enter
on:
Create New Folder
As soon as you press enter, you have to type in the name of the new folder.
This will create a new folder for that account.
This is all in the Folders Button.
Press enter on Folders Button, again, if you are not still in that pane.
On your list of folders, you can arrow to a folder, and press:
Applications Key or Shift+F10.
You can now down arrow through the following choices:
Add to Favorites Button
Pressing Enter will put that folder on your favorites list of folders, so
you do not have to keep coming into the Folders Button to find a folder.
Next choice when pressing applications Key:
, Create new subfolder Button
Pressing enter on that choice, will allow you to create a sub folder under
that main folder you arrowed to.
As soon as you press enter, you have to type in the name of the sub folder,
and press enter.
The third choice:
Rename Button
The fourth choice:
Delete Button
Pressing enter there wil delete the folder.
Fifth Choice:
Move Button
Sixth Choice:
Empty folder Button
Seventh and last Choice:
Pin to Start Button
To review:
When you arrow to a folder, you can press:
Applications Key or Shift+F10,
and you get a menu of seven choices listed above.
You can press enter on any of those choices to do the action that it says.
We are all done with the Folders Button.
Now, make sure that you are on the Folders Button, and we will start
tabbing
again.
If you tab from the Folders Button,
You are on your list of Favorite Folders I mentioned.
You can just arrow down through this list of folders that you chose to be
your favorite folders.
You do not have to enter on the Folders Button to get to these.
They are right here in a list.
I have my In Box folder, Sent Folder, Trash Folder, and a Saved folder that
I created, in my Favorites list.
I keep those four folders in that favorites list, so I do not have to keep
pressing enter on the Folders Button to get to those Folders.
I can just tab over to this list of four folders that I use the most.
Pressing enter on one of those four folders will put me right in the list
of
messages for that folder.
You always get put right on the list of messages when you enter on any
folder.
Now, we will tab from this favorites list, and we get:
Moore Button.
This is the exact copy of the Folders Button LOL!
Forget the More Button LOL!
Tab again:
Switch to Calendar Button:
Tab:
Switch to People Button:
Pressing enter on one of those buttons, will Open one of those apps.
You can have all three opened at the same time.
Tab:
Settings Button:

Sub Section:
We have important stuff here, if we press enter on Settings Button, so this
will be another sub section, like Folders Button.
Settings Button
Press Enter on Settings Button.
Now, let us look at the settings in the mail app. There are some settings
that you might want to change or work with in these groups of settings .
The
two groups of settings you should open are the reading and signature
settings. Do not mess with the other groups of settings.
Reading Settings
There are two choices you might want to change in this settings group.
You can check or uncheck carrot browsing.
I would leave carrot browsing unchecked in the reading settings group.
Now, in this reading group, there is also a button that turns on and off
conversation view.
You definitely want this button checked, because your messages will be
grouped into their respective threads.
You can delete the entire thread if your messages are in conversation view.
Press enter on the back button to close the reading group.
Each group of Settings has a back button you can press enter on to get out
of that group, and you are taken back to the groups of settings.
Signature Settings Group:
This is the only other group of settings where you need to do anything.
Press Enter on Signature Settings.
In here, you can add a signature, or check all accounts to have the same
signature
If you check to have a signature, and press Tab, there is a signature that
is there by default.
It says:
sent from mail for windows 10.
If you want to create your own signature, check the signature, and over
right that default signature to add your own signature you want to appear
after every message that you send.
You can have different signatures for each account, or have the same
signature for all accounts by checking all accounts.
If you want no signature, you can just press Spacebar to uncheck the
signature toggle.
Press the Back Button, to get out of the Signature Settings Group.
If you press:
Escape
You are back on the Settings Button, where we were tabbing across the Mail
App.
That is pretty much all I would worry about in settings.
There are just a few more tabs, before we are back to the list of messages.
Tab from Settings Button:
There is a search edit box.
If you type any name, or phrase, and so on in that search box,
it will narrow down the list of email messages that have that Name or
phrase
in them.
This is a great way to find a particular message very quickly.
I use this a lot.
You can get right to that search box,
by pressing:
CTRL+E
You do not have to tab to that LOL!
Tab, and you have:
Sync this View Button.
If you press that, your messages will load more quickly, but they load
quickly anyway for me, and I do not have to press enter on that:
sync this View button.
Tab again, and you have:
Enter Selection Mode Button.
This is important.
When you press enter on that button, you are on your list of messages in
that folder, but now, there is a difference.
There is now a check box before each message that you can press spacebar on
to check that message. You can check as many messages as you want.
Now, if you shift tab twice, you are back to where the:
Enter sellection Mode Button was.
Now, there is a check box there that says, Select all, check box not
checked.
you can press spacebar to check all of your messages. You have to tab twice
to get back to the list of messages, but now, they are all checked.
After you check messages, you can press the:
applications Key or Shift+F10
and you will have the following choices:
Archive, Delete, Move, and a few less important choices in that context
menu.
If you press enter on delete, all messages that are selected will be
deleted. If you press enter on move, your list of all folders come up, and
you can move your selected messages to another folder.
Just press enter on the folder, and the selected messages are moved to that
folder.

Section Six:
Working with your messages:
Now, we can start working with with our email messages for what ever
account
you pick from the list of accounts. All the accounts will be in a virticle
list, and you just press enter on what ever account you want to work with,
and you will be placed in the inbox and the messages will load.
Here we go LOL!
Let us arrow through the messages in the inbox and read some of our
messages.
Just enter on the message you want to open. To read messages with NVDA, you
must be in brows mode.
When you type a message, you must be in focus mode.
The only time you want to be in Brows Mode, is to read the messages. To
attach a file to the message, for example, you want to be in Focus mode
with
NVDA.
With Narrator, you want to be in scan mode to read messages.
To do everything else, even type a message, you need to turn off scan mode.
Narrator works very well with the mail app.
Now, with JAWS, you are put in a virtual environment just like on the
Internet. The virtual PC cursor, will allow you to select and copy
information that is right in the message.
when you are done reading that message, just press escape to get out of the
message and back to the list of messages
You do not have to do anything with JAWS to do all that you want to do in
the mail app, even type a message.
Now, let me give you some important key commands right here.
tab gets you anywhere in the mail app you want to be. Tabbing will get you
to the list of your accounts, and the folders button, that you enter on to
get a full list of folders for that account. When you are on the list of
folders, tab to the more button and press enter to do more with your
folders, like create a new folder. To create a sub folder for a particular
folder Tab to the more button again, and press enter. Down arrow to creat a
sub folder. and arrow to which folder you want to create the sub folder for
and tab to create, and press enter. . Now, you can type the name of the sub
folder you want, and press enter. That is how you create a sub folder of a
folder that is already there. When you are on a message in the list, you
can
press the applications key or shift+F10 and get choices of what you can do
with that message. One of these choices is move. If you enter on move, you
will get a list of folders you can move that message to. I created a folder
called saved messages. So when I want to save a message, I just move the
message to my saved messages folder. If you press delete, the message goes
in the trash folder. To send a message, press ctrl+N. You are put in the
to:
edit box. Just type in the email, tab to subject, and tab to write your
message. To send a message, press Alt+S, and you are back on the list of
messages in your inbox. After you open a message and read it, you can reply
to it by pressing CTRL+R. Just type your message, and press alt+S to send
your reply. You will be in the list of messages, and just press the delete
key to delete that message. To forward a message, just press ctrl+F. To
spell check your message before sending, just press F7.
Tabs on the ribbon of the mail app:
Here we go with the ribbon. When you are in a message, three tabs show up
on
the ribbon. Just press the alt key to get to the ribbon. The first tab you
will hear is the format tab. Right arrow to the insert tab, and right arrow
again to the third and last tab, the options tab. Now, if you press alt a
second time while you are still in the mail app, you will be on the tab
that
you were last working with. If you were working with the options tab
lastly,
the options tab will show up, and you will have to left arrow to get back
to
insert and format. You do wrap around in a circle with a couple of other
choices in there as you wrap. On any of these tabs, just press the down
arrow to get to all of the choices for that tab. Then, press tab to tab
through all of the choices. For example, to insert an attachment into an
email, press the alt key, and arrow to the insert tab. Then, press the down
arrow, and you are right on the files choice. It will not say attach, this
is very important. Pressing down arrow on the insert tab, allows you to
insert different things into your email. Remember, you can just press:
Alt+I to attach a file.
To attach anything else, you must go to the insert tab on the ribbon. The
ribbon is not important, unless you want to insert different things into
the
email, or if you want to format the email.
Other choices to insert, are table, link, and so on. These are different
things that you can insert in your email. Press enter on files, and you can
brows your computer to find a file to insert or attach, and press enter on
the open button. Now, you are put back on your message you are composing.
If
you press Shift+tab one time, you will be on your file that you attached to
your email. That is how people will find your attachments. They will just
shift tab to hear all of the files you inserted or attached to your email.
Now, Use Shift+Tab again to move focus to the subject line, and press
Shift+Tab again to hear the sender’s name. In other words, when you are in
a
message, press Shift+tab to hear all of the information like the subject,
the sender, the time and date, and so on. There are not key commands to
read
this information to you like in other clients. When you finish reading the
message, press the Escape key to return to the message list. That is the
key. If you just press escape, you go back to your list of messages. If you
press delete on a message in the list, it goes to the trash folder right
away. Now, if you select some text in your email, just press alt, and arrow
to the format tab, and press down arrow to the format choices if you want
to
format your email. just tab through the choices. There are many, you can do
about anything here to format your email text. For example, if you down
arrow on the format tab, there will be choices to bold, underline, and to
do
other things to the text that you select in your email that you are
composing. Now, for the options tab, the third and last tab, you will not
need to use, but feel free to check out the options. The option for Spell
Checking, is the same as pressing F7 in your message. Now, here is the
thing
about spell checking in the mail app. You can go to the win10 settings app,
by pressing windows+I to have win10 correct much of your spelling as you
type. This only works though, in a win10 app. The mail app qualifies for
that. So, in settings, arrow to the devices group and press enter. Then, go
to the type choice and press enter. Check two check boxes. The first says
something like correct spelling, and the second one says something like
high
light words that are misspelled. Check those two check boxes and press
enter. Now, when you are in the mail app, most of the words will be
automatically corrected as you type them. However, this feature will not
correct all misspelled words. This is where you press F7 to do a total
spell
check. Important: There is not a way to have the mail app spell check every
message automatically when you send it like with WLM. You definitely have
to
spell check every message that you compose before you send it just like
with
each document in Word.
Well, we have covered everything with the mail app itself.
Now, I will show you quickly how to use the people app and calendar app,
and
then you can use all three apps together as one email client.
People app:
Launch the People app, and tab a few times. You will tab by a new button,
where you can manually enter the information for a new contact. If you tab
passed the new button, you will come to a list of contacts. You cannot use
first letter navigation to jump to a certain contact, but here is what you
can do. Tab one more time, and you will be in a list of letters of the
alphabet. Again, you cannot use first letter navigation, like you can now
use in the all apps. Just arrow down to the letter you want, and shift+tab
back to the list of contact starting with that letter. Find the name you
want, and tab a few more times. There will be an edit where you can edit
the
contact's information. Tab passed that, and you will come to profile. Tab
one more time, and you will be on their email. To copy that email, you have
to press the applications key, or shift+F10, and press enter on copy. You
will then have that person's email copied to the clip board. You can go to
the mail app, and paste that into the to: edit box to send them an email.
That is it with the people app. Remember, your contacts are imported into
the people app. As you type an email into the mail app, the populated
choices come from the people app.
Calendar app:
Launch the calendar app, and press alt+ctrl+4 to get into month view. You
are put on a grid of days of the week. You will land on to day. It will say
the date as well. For example, you will hear Friday, October 28. You also
hear how many events are linked with that day, like birthday's of your
contacts and so on. Tab to each event, and press enter on the event to get
the details of the event. If you shift+tab, you will go back to the day of
those events. If you press right and left arrow, you will go forward a day
or back a day. Up arrow takes you a week before from that day, and
downarrow
takes you a week ahead of that day. If you want to schedule an event for a
certain day, just press enter on that day, and a dialog will come up for
you
to enter all of the information for the appointment or event, and there is
an okay or done button. There you go! That is how you read days, the events
for those days, and how to schedule an event for that day. That is about it
for the calendar app.

Here are many keyboard shortcuts to use all three apps:
Account Manual Sync (Send and retrieve new mail)
CTRL+M
Or
F9
Mark as read
CTRL+Q
Mark as unread
CTRL+U
Toggle the important property on a conversation
CTRL+SHIFT+G
Delete a conversation
CTRL+D
Or
DEL
Archive a conversation
BACKSPACE
Reply to current mail
CTRL+R
Reply all
CTRL+SHIFT+R
Forward current mail
CTRL+F
Search
CTRL+E
Or
F3
Create a new mail
CTRL+N
Or
CTRL+SHIFT+M
Add Attachment
ALT+I
Send mail
ALT+S
Or
Ctrl + Enter
Switch to Inbox
CTRL+SHIFT+I
Switch to Outbox
CTRL+SHIFT+O
Zoom in
CTRL++ (Plus key on numpad)
Zoom out
CTRL+- (Minus key on numpad)
Move between regions
F6
Toggle Caret Browsing
F7
Key commands for the Calendar app:
Accept Meeting Invitation
Alt+C
Decline Meeting Invitation
Alt+D
Tentative Meeting Invitation
Alt+N
Move to View
CTRL+SHIFT+V
Switch to the calendar in the mail app
CTRL+2

Well, I hope you get so much good out of this tutorial , and you can get a
lot out of using the mail app, people, and calendar apps. You can do a lot
with three apps. I would pin all three of them to the taskbar, and have
them
all opened at the same time
Take care,
David Moore

from Mack How to change Windows 10 Spotlight lock screen settings (TechRepublic)
If you'd like to take a simpler route without messing with the Registry, then open File Explorer and navigate to your Windows directory.
The file folder we are looking for will generally follow this path:
C:\Windows\SystemApps
As you can see in Figure A, this file folder contains a large number of system folders. We want to concentrate our efforts on the folder labeled: Microsoft.LockApp_cw5n1h2txyewy.
Figure A
a-disable-win10-lock-screen-easy.jpg
Once you find the Microsoft.LockApp_cw5n1h2txyewy folder, right-click on it and select the Rename function from the context menu.
Just in case we want to enable the lock screen again, we don't want to change the name of the folder too much, so just add ".disabled" to the end of the current folder name (Figure B). The system will ask for confirmation. When complete, it should look like this:
Microsoft.LockApp_cw5n1h2txyewy.disabled
Figure B

Mail App Tutorial by David Moore

-Mike B
 

Here you go:
 
Here is the start of the tutorial.
Tutorial on Using the Mail, People, and Calendar Apps.
By
David Moore
All key commands for all three apps, Mail, People, and Calendar, are at the
end of this tutorial.
Intruduction:
 
 I will Let you know this first. When you import your email accounts into
the win10 Mail app,
your contacts are automatically imported into the People app. All calendar
information, is imported into the Calendar app.
So, if you want to work with your contacts, you have to do so in the people
app and not the mail app. Think of it like this. Three apps work together to
give you that MS outlook client experience.
The people app has all of your contacts. The mail app is where you work with
and send your email messages. The Calendar app has all of your appointments
and much more.
Now, while you are in the win10 mail app, you can switch to the Calendar app
or the People app.
 Many of the commands are the same as in WLM.
Mail for Windows 10 supports most types of email services.  You can add any
of these Microsoft accounts:
Exchange, Office 365, Outlook.com, Hotmail, Live.com, and MSN.com.  You can
also add any of these accounts:
Gmail, Yahoo Mail, iCloud, or an account with a POP or IMAP server.
 
Section One
Launching the Windows 10 Mail App
So, let us consider how you can launch the mail app for the first time. The
way I did it, was to press the windows key or CTRL+Escape and type mail. I
heard windows mail app trusted windows store app.
Now, press enter, and the mail app will open. There you go, you have
launched the mail app for the first time. The first time you open Mail,
you'll land on the Welcome screen. Press Enter on Get Started. Now, you are
ready to start using the Win10 Mail App. If you have a Microsoft Account,
your MS email account should already be imported into the mail app.
 
Section Two:
Putting the Mail, Calendar, and People apps on your Desktop, or pinning them
to your taskbar:
Finally, let us begin to learn how to use these three apps.
You may want to pin all three apps, Mail, Calendar, and People, to your
taskbar, or put them on your desktop as short cuts.
To put them as short cuts on your Desktop, press Windows key+R to open the
run dialog.
just type:
shell:appsfolder
In a second, all of your apps will be in a list. Just press the first letter
of the one you want until you hear, Mail, for example.
Now, press your applications key or Shift+F10.
Now, press the up arrow key once to hear:
Create short cut.
Enter on that, and you will hear:
Short cut cannot be created here, do you want to put it on the desktop
instead?
Just press enter, and the Mail app will be on your Desktop.
To pen it to the taskbar, just press the Windows Key or CTRL+Escape and type
Mail, for example.
When you hear Mail, just press the appllications key or Shift+F10 and arrow
down to:
Pin to taskbar and press enter.
The Mail app will be on your Taskbar.
You can do the same for the Calendar and People apps.
 
Section Three
A Few Key Commands to get started:
 Here are a few commands to use the mail app. Tab key: The tab key will get
you anywhere you need to go in the mail app. Also, F6 will take you to
different sections of the app. These three apps, mail, people, and calendar
apps have been made so accessible, that you can use the PC cursor with JAWS.
Also, no object navigation needs to be done in these three apps with NVDA.
Narrator works great as well.
When you read messages with Narrator, Scan mode needs to be activated by
pressing:
Caps Lock+Spacebar.
That command toggles the Scan Mode on and off with Narrator.
You only want to turn on Scan Mode to read messages.
You want it off the rest of the time. Even when you type a message, Scan
Mode needs to be turnned off.
Scan Mode is just for reading.
When a message is opened with JAWS, you are put in a virtual viewer so you
can use the virtual cursor, just like in a web page.
Now, to work with messages:
 to send your message, press
alt+S.
To reply to a message:
press ctrl+R.
to forward a message:
press CTRL+F.
to create a new message:
press CTRL+N.
As you type the email address, choices will populate to choose from.
To insert an attachment, press Alt+I.
You can then brows for the file you want to attach.
All other key commands for all three of these apps, will be put at the end
of this tutorial.
 
Section Four:
Importing your first account into the Mail App
Now, let us add our first account.
From the list of messages for your MS account, tab to manage accounts and
press enter.
If you do not have an MS email account imported in to the Mail app, just Tab
to Manage Accounts and press enter.
 Next, tab to the Add account button and press enter.
 You will be in a list of account types you can add. In the Choose an
account dialog, use the Down Arrow key to go through the list of account
types (Outlook.com, Exchange, Google, Yahoo Mail, and so
on). When you hear the name of your account type, press Enter. For example,
if you want to add a Gmail account, press enter on Google. Next, Enter the
email address for the account that you want to add. Now, tab to the password
box, and enter your password.
Press the Tab key to move to the Sign in button and press enter.
 Now, press enter again on the:
 done button.
Your email account should import into the Mail app in seconds, and your
emails will be in your in box from the last three months.
 Now, if it does not work to import an account by choosing Google, for
example, any account will import into this choice:
Go to the account choice:
other account, IMAP or POP.
Any account, Pop or IMAP, will import under this choice, even a Google
account.
Only a few POP email Accounts will have to be imported by hand with all of
the settings.
For most accounts, your email and password will be enough to import the
account.
The last account choice, is the advanced account. Enter on this last choice
if you need to enter in all of your account settings by hand.
The only reason why you need the advanced account choice is to import a few
older POP 3 accounts and set them up by hand.
To import all of your accounts:
Just follow the same instructions written above.
You will need to press enter on Manage Accounts, and enter on Add account,
for each account you import.
It is important that you know that your contacts for your accounts, are
imported into the People app.
You can get to the People App right from the Mail app.
Also, all calendar data partaning to your accounts, is imported into the
Calendar App.
This is how all three apps work together to give you the entire Email Client
experience.
After you add your accounts, notice in the manage accounts menu, you will
see a choice to link accounts. This means, that you could have all messages
from all of your accounts go into one inbox. I would not do this. Each
account should have its own inbox.
Now, let us press enter on one of the accounts that you just added and see
what happens.
If you press enter on one of your accounts, there is a choice to delete the
account if you decide you do not want it in the mail app anymore.
Also, if you press enter on the sync settings, you will see that your emails
from three months ago will import. You can change this if you want.
Also, You can change some settings about how the emails are synced in the
mail app, but I would not mess with that at all.
Now, just press escape to get out of that, and you will be back in your list
of accounts. Press escape to close the manage accounts pane.
We are all done with the Manage accounts option.
 
Section Five:
Navigating the Maiol App with the Tab Key
Now, we have all of our accounts imported intothe Mail App.
Make sure that you are on a folder list of messages for one of your
accounts.
A list of messages will be our starting point, and we will begin to tab.
Now I will Tab.
I am on my list of emails for my MS Outlook account.
Tabbing:
I hear Navigation button collapsed.
You want to press enter to hear:
Navigation button expanded.
If you do not do this, you will not see everything in the Mail app.
Tab again, and you hear:
New Mail Button.
This is what you activate by pressing the key command:
CTRL+N
You do not need this button.
Tab: and you hear:
Manage accounts.
That is where we just were when you imported and customized all of your
email accounts.
Tab:
You will see a list of all of your accounts once you import them into the
Mail app.
If you press enter on an account, the In Box of messages for that account
will open and you are put in the inbox of messages.
 Now, we will tab from your list of accounts.
You have Folders Button.
Sub Section:
Folders Button.
When you press enter on Folders Button, there is a lot you can do in here.
In this Sub Section, We will talk about all you can do after you press enter
on Folders Button.
Press enter on Folders Button:
The first thing you will be on, is a virticle list of all of your folders
for that email account.
You can just up and down arrow to the folder you want, and press enter.
You are then put right in the list of messages for that folder.
Instead of pressing enter on a folder, if you tab once, you can press enter
on:
Create New Folder
As soon as you press enter, you have to type in the name of the new folder.
This will create a new folder for that account.
This is all in the Folders Button.
Press enter on Folders Button, again, if you are not still in that pane.
On your list of folders, you can arrow to a folder, and press:
Applications Key or Shift+F10.
You can now down arrow through the following choices:
Add to Favorites Button
Pressing Enter will put that folder on your favorites list of folders, so
you do not have to keep coming into the Folders Button to find a folder.
Next choice when pressing applications Key:
, Create new subfolder Button
Pressing enter on that choice, will allow you to create a sub folder under
that main folder you arrowed to.
As soon as you press enter, you have to type in the name of the sub folder,
and press enter.
The third choice:
 Rename Button
The fourth choice:
Delete Button
Pressing enter there wil delete the folder.
Fifth Choice:
Move Button
Sixth Choice:
 Empty folder Button
Seventh and last Choice:
Pin to Start Button
To review:
When you arrow to a folder, you can press:
Applications Key or Shift+F10,
and you get a menu of seven choices listed above.
You can press enter on any of those choices to do the action that it says.
We are all done with the Folders Button.
Now, make sure that you are on the Folders Button, and we will start tabbing
again.
If you tab from the Folders Button,
You are on your list of Favorite Folders I mentioned.
You can just arrow down through this list of folders that you chose to be
your favorite folders.
You do not have to enter on the Folders Button to get to these.
They are right here in a list.
I have my In Box folder, Sent Folder, Trash Folder, and a Saved folder that
I created, in my Favorites list.
I keep those four folders in that favorites list, so I do not have to keep
pressing enter on the Folders Button to get to those Folders.
I can just tab over to this list of four folders that I use the most.
Pressing enter on one of those four folders will put me right in the list of
messages for that folder.
You always get put right on the list of messages when you enter on any
folder.
Now, we will tab from this favorites list, and we get:
Moore Button.
This is the exact copy of the Folders Button LOL!
Forget the More Button LOL!
Tab again:
Switch to Calendar Button:
Tab:
Switch to People Button:
Pressing enter on one of those buttons, will Open one of those apps.
You can have all three opened at the same time.
Tab:
Settings Button:
 
Sub Section:
We have important stuff here, if we press enter on Settings Button, so this
will be another sub section, like Folders Button.
Settings Button
Press Enter on Settings Button.
Now, let us look at the settings in the mail app. There are some settings
that you might want to change or work with in these groups of settings . The
two groups of settings you should open are the reading and signature
settings. Do not mess with the other groups of settings.
Reading Settings
There are two choices you might want to change in this settings group.
You can check or uncheck carrot browsing.
I would leave carrot browsing unchecked in the reading settings group.
Now, in this reading group, there is also a button that turns on and off
conversation view.
You definitely want this button checked, because your messages will be
grouped into their respective threads.
You can delete the entire thread if your messages are in conversation view.
Press enter on the back button to close the reading group.
Each group of Settings has a back button you can press enter on to get out
of that group, and you are taken back to the groups of settings.
Signature Settings Group:
This is the only other group of settings where you need to do anything.
Press Enter on Signature Settings.
In here, you can add a signature, or check all accounts to have the same
signature
If you check to have a signature, and press Tab, there is a signature that
is there by default.
 It says:
sent from mail for windows 10.
If you want to create your own signature, check the signature, and over
right that default signature to add your own signature you want to appear
after every message that you send.
 You can have different signatures for each account, or have the same
signature for all accounts by checking all accounts.
If you want no signature, you can just press Spacebar to uncheck the
signature toggle.
Press the Back Button, to get out of the Signature Settings Group.
If you press:
Escape
You are back on the Settings Button, where we were tabbing across the Mail
App.
That is pretty much all I would worry about in settings.
There are just a few more tabs, before we are back to the list of messages.
Tab from Settings Button:
There is a search edit box.
If you type any name, or phrase, and so on in that search box,
it will narrow down the list of email messages that have that Name or phrase
in them.
This is a great way to find a particular message very quickly.
I use this a lot.
You can get right to that search box,
by pressing:
CTRL+E
You do not have to tab to that LOL!
Tab, and you have:
Sync this View Button.
If you press that, your messages will load more quickly, but they load
quickly anyway for me, and I do not have to press enter on that:
sync this View button.
Tab again, and you have:
Enter Selection Mode Button.
This is important.
When you press enter on that button, you are on your list of messages in
that folder, but now, there is a difference.
There is now a check box before each message that you can press spacebar on
to check that message. You can check as many messages as you want.
Now, if you shift tab twice, you are back to where the:
Enter sellection Mode Button was.
Now, there is a check box there that says, Select all, check box not
checked.
you can press spacebar to check all of your messages. You have to tab twice
to get back to the list of messages, but now, they are all checked.
After you check messages, you can press the:
applications Key or Shift+F10
and you will have the following choices:
Archive, Delete, Move, and a few less important choices in that context
menu.
If you press enter on delete, all messages that are selected will be
deleted. If you press enter on move, your list of all folders come up, and
you can move your selected messages to another folder.
Just press enter on the folder, and the selected messages are moved to that
folder.
 
Section Six:
Working with your messages:
Now, we can start working with with our email messages for what ever account
you pick from the list of accounts. All the accounts will be in a virticle
list, and you just press enter on what ever account you want to work with,
and you will be placed in the inbox and the messages will load.
Here we go LOL!
Let us arrow through the messages in the inbox and read some of our
messages.
Just enter on the message you want to open. To read messages with NVDA, you
must be in brows mode.
When you type a message, you must be in focus mode.
The only time you want to be in Brows Mode, is to read the messages. To
attach a file to the message, for example, you want to be in Focus mode with
NVDA.
With Narrator, you want to be in scan mode to read messages.
To do everything else, even type a message, you need to turn off scan mode.
Narrator works very well with the mail app.
 Now, with JAWS, you are put in a virtual environment just like on the
Internet. The virtual PC cursor, will allow you to select and copy
information that is right in the message.
when you are done reading that message, just press escape to get out of the
message and back to the list of messages
You do not have to do anything with JAWS to do all that you want to do in
the mail app, even type a message.
 Now, let me give you some important key commands right here.
tab gets you anywhere in the mail app you want to be. Tabbing will get you
to the list of your accounts, and the folders button, that you enter on to
get a full list of folders for that account. When you are on the list of
folders, tab to the more button and press enter to do more with your
folders, like create a new folder. To create a sub folder for a particular
folder Tab to the more button again, and press enter. Down arrow to creat a
sub folder. and arrow to which folder you want to create the sub folder for
and tab to create, and press enter. . Now, you can type the name of the sub
folder you want, and press enter. That is how you create a sub folder of a
folder that is already there. When you are on a message in the list, you can
press the applications key or shift+F10 and get choices of what you can do
with that message. One of these choices is move. If you enter on move, you
will get a list of folders you can move that message to. I created a folder
called saved messages. So when I want to save a message, I just move the
message to my saved messages folder. If you press delete, the message goes
in the trash folder. To send a message, press ctrl+N. You are put in the to:
edit box. Just type in the email, tab to subject, and tab to write your
message. To send a message, press Alt+S, and you are back on the list of
messages in your inbox. After you open a message and read it, you can reply
to it by pressing CTRL+R. Just type your message, and press alt+S to send
your reply. You will be in the list of messages, and just press the delete
key to delete that message. To forward a message, just press ctrl+F. To
spell check your message before sending, just press F7.
Tabs on the ribbon of the mail app:
Here we go with the ribbon. When you are in a message, three tabs show up on
the ribbon. Just press the alt key to get to the ribbon. The first tab you
will hear is the format tab. Right arrow to the insert tab, and right arrow
again to the third and last tab, the options tab. Now, if you press alt a
second time while you are still in the mail app, you will be on the tab that
you were last working with. If you were working with the options tab lastly,
the options tab will show up, and you will have to left arrow to get back to
insert and format. You do wrap around in a circle with a couple of other
choices in there as you wrap. On any of these tabs, just press the down
arrow to get to all of the choices for that tab. Then, press tab to tab
through all of the choices. For example, to insert an attachment into an
email, press the alt key, and arrow to the insert tab. Then, press the down
arrow, and you are right on the files choice. It will not say attach, this
is very important. Pressing down arrow on the insert tab, allows you to
insert different things into your email. Remember, you can just press:
Alt+I to attach a file.
 To attach anything else, you must go to the insert tab on the ribbon. The
ribbon is not important, unless you want to insert different things into the
email, or if you want to format the email.
Other choices to insert, are table, link, and so on. These are different
things that you can insert in your email. Press enter on files, and you can
brows your computer to find a file to insert or attach, and press enter on
the open button. Now, you are put back on your message you are composing. If
you press Shift+tab one time, you will be on your file that you attached to
your email. That is how people will find your attachments. They will just
shift tab to hear all of the files you inserted or attached to your email.
Now, Use Shift+Tab again to move focus to the subject line, and press
Shift+Tab again to hear the sender’s name. In other words, when you are in a
message, press Shift+tab to hear all of the information like the subject,
the sender, the time and date, and so on. There are not key commands to read
this information to you like in other clients. When you finish reading the
message, press the Escape key to return to the message list. That is the
key. If you just press escape, you go back to your list of messages. If you
press delete on a message in the list, it goes to the trash folder right
away. Now, if you select some text in your email, just press alt, and arrow
to the format tab, and press down arrow to the format choices if you want to
format your email. just tab through the choices. There are many, you can do
about anything here to format your email text. For example, if you down
arrow on the format tab, there will be choices to bold, underline, and to do
other things to the text that you select in your email that you are
composing. Now, for the options tab, the third and last tab, you will not
need to use, but feel free to check out the options. The option for Spell
Checking, is the same as pressing F7 in your message. Now, here is the thing
about spell checking in the mail app. You can go to the win10 settings app,
by pressing windows+I to have win10 correct much of your spelling as you
type. This only works though, in a win10 app. The mail app qualifies for
that. So, in settings, arrow to the devices group and press enter. Then, go
to the type choice and press enter. Check two check boxes. The first says
something like correct spelling, and the second one says something like high
light words that are misspelled. Check those two check boxes and press
enter. Now, when you are in the mail app, most of the words will be
automatically corrected as you type them. However, this feature will not
correct all misspelled words. This is where you press F7 to do a total spell
check. Important: There is not a way to have the mail app spell check every
message automatically when you send it like with WLM. You definitely have to
spell check every message that you compose before you send it just like with
each document in Word.
Well, we have covered everything with the mail app itself.
Now, I will show you quickly how to use the people app and calendar app, and
then you can use all three apps together as one email client.
People app:
Launch the People app, and tab a few times. You will tab by a new button,
where you can manually enter the information for a new contact. If you tab
passed the new button, you will come to a list of contacts. You cannot use
first letter navigation to jump to a certain contact, but here is what you
can do. Tab one more time, and you will be in a list of letters of the
alphabet. Again, you cannot use first letter navigation, like you can now
use in the all apps. Just arrow down to the letter you want, and shift+tab
back to the list of contact starting with that letter. Find the name you
want, and tab a few more times. There will be an edit where you can edit the
contact's information. Tab passed that, and you will come to profile. Tab
one more time, and you will be on their email. To copy that email, you have
to press the applications key, or shift+F10, and press enter on copy. You
will then have that person's email copied to the clip board. You can go to
the mail app, and paste that into the to: edit box to send them an email.
That is it with the people app. Remember, your contacts are imported into
the people app. As you type an email into the mail app, the populated
choices come from the people app.
Calendar app:
Launch the calendar app, and press alt+ctrl+4 to get into month view. You
are put on a grid of days of the week. You will land on to day. It will say
the date as well. For example, you will hear Friday, October 28. You also
hear how many events are linked with that day, like birthday's of your
contacts and so on. Tab to each event, and press enter on the event to get
the details of the event. If you shift+tab, you will go back to the day of
those events. If you press right and left arrow, you will go forward a day
or back a day. Up arrow takes you a week before from that day, and downarrow
takes you a week ahead of that day. If you want to schedule an event for a
certain day, just press enter on that day, and a dialog will come up for you
to enter all of the information for the appointment or event, and there is
an okay or done button. There you go! That is how you read days, the events
for those days, and how to schedule an event for that day. That is about it
for the calendar app.
 
Here are many keyboard shortcuts to use all three apps:
 Account Manual Sync (Send and retrieve new mail)

Switch to the calendar in the mail app
CTRL+2
 
Well, I hope you get so much good out of this tutorial , and you can get a
lot out of using the mail app, people, and calendar apps. You can do a lot
with three apps. I would pin all three of them to the taskbar, and have them
all opened at the same time
Take care,
David Moore
 


Re: Outbox.

Thomas N. Chan
 

On the message itself, for you to change the account you are sending from, hit alt - m. that will trigger the from button on the message pane. your window must be maximized  or a certain size to see that from button.

when you are done with the message, hit alt - s, that will trigger the send action. n that button as what i mentioned earlier

to trigger the send action or you have multiple unsend messages in your outbox, in the main outlook window,  hit the follow key.
alt - j a

to trigger send and receive in outlook, both send and receive  action, do  hit ctrl - m

to see the send and receive  progress, hit alt - j p

Open an unsent message and change the account it is sent from.  In e-mail programs I've used, this is done by shift tabbing until you get to the from line.  From there, you up or down arrow, whichever works, to change the account the message is to be sent from. 

I am assuming that the messages in the outbox can be opened and worked with as though they were drafts and the way to change things in messages are the same as though you were working with an opened message you had begun or replied to in the usual way.

To stop the problem, find the outbox and delete all messages in it.  Then send mail only from your other address.  Don't even bother entering your password.  Just close the dialog with escape and use your other e-mail provider until you resolve the problem.  

Do you know someone who can follow instructions such as I wrote?  Even if the person doesn't understand why these things are done, if someone knows how to work with web sites in terms of working with forms, they can do what is needed.

Or, you can use the Windows Mail app for now.  You don't need an application specific password for it.

Re: Outbox.

Gene
 

You might as well try my solution of opening a message in the outbox, shift tabbing to the from line, and up and down arrowing to see if you can change the account it is sent from.  While this doesn't work in Thunderbird, it does in Windows Live Mail, I just checked.

Since Windows Live Mail is a Microsoft [product and Thunderbird isn't, this may well work in Outlook, even though it doesn't in Thunderbird.
