According to my Outlook 2010, it's Control e which moves focus to the
Search field.

It even says so on the screen.

I don't use 2010 as I understood that 2003 was still a better bet, but
I'd be interested to know if that's still the case.  Could you not use
the Windows 7 search box to find messages you want?

Hi all

I've reinstalled office 2010 on my home pc, as my employer has
migrated over to win7 and office 2010, so I have little choice but
submerge myself into 2010, and learn the dam thing.

When using the 2003 version to search for a particular email, I just
did the "control shift and f" command.  Then typed in the word to
search for, tab once and select "frequently used fields", then pressed
enter, and after a couple of seconds, emails started to appear that
included the word being searched for .

If however I do exactly the same thing using 2010, the emails being
searched for can never be found.  Can't remember exactly what jaws
says, but either way, this method for searching for emails doesn't
seem to work for me in 2010.

Do I need to change something to make this work?

It's a facility I could really do with having working again,
especially when some in boxes contain hundreds or thousands of
messages.

Any help very much appreciated.

Terry
