We’ll discuss some of the best ways that you can use Microsoft Outlook to help your business function better as a whole.

Keyboard shortcuts are certainly no stranger to any business owner, but Microsoft Outlook has several specific shortcuts that you can use to save a surprising amount of time on daily, mundane tasks. The following shortcuts can be used in Microsoft Outlook 2013 and 2016. All you need to do is print this blog out and hand it out to your staff--they’ll never have to Google another shortcut again.

  • Alt + S: This will send an email.
  • Ctrl + Enter: Send the message you’re currently writing.
