Re: jaws & outlook2016

Van Lant, Robin

I just did the following approach successfully within Outlook 2016.   Go to the contacts folder  where the contacts you want to move are. You can do this in a number of ways. I used Control Y to open the list of folder and arrowed down to the my main email account then to Contacts.  This is a tree view, so you may need to right arrow to open the list of folders under the account.


You’ll be placed on the first contact in your folder.  Hit Control A to select all.  Then hit Control C or Control X to copy or cut respectively.


Use Control Y to open the folder list again and navigate to the contact folder where you want to place the contacts.  Again, you may have to right arrow to open a tree view to see the next contacts folder. 


Once you’ve landed in the Contracts folder, hit Control V to paste the contacts.  I just did this with 3 contacts from my main email account and place them into a different account’s contacts.


I never use that Control Shift B method to access my contacts.  I’ll have to see what advance that gives, but it’s not even on my radar to use it.  It’s providing a list of contact, but it is not the kind of list you can copy from. 


Generally, you can use Control 3 to go to your contacts for the given email account.

ok, within office 2016,

I tried the following;


1, opened outlook,

2, pressed ctrl+shift+b=book,

3, tab until I get to the combo box,

now choose the addressbook/folder where the contacts are currently, so, in the list of contacts, I highlight one, copy to clipboard, tab back to the combo box, find the correct folder, tab and I see there's 0 contacts, so I paste, and nothing happens.

so, the copy paste does not work.

I tested this on my own machine.

That’s correct- it’s a simple copy and paste. If control-A does not work for any reason, hold down the shift key and press the end key to select all or select the ones you want with control-space and paste only those entries.

I have not tried it, but I would think you could simply go into one contact folder, do a Control A to select all then copy into the desired folder.  Outlook is usually pretty straight forward with that kind of thing.

Good morning listers.

does anyone happen to know how to move contacts from one folder to another?


One of my clients had a friend help him upgrade his office 2007 to office 2016.

unfortunately, through the process, the program created another contact folder.

he now has 3 folders.

his gmail account contact folder, a contacts folder, and the newly created one. is there a way to move contacts to the gmail, or, contact folder?


in advance, thanks for the help.
