    Click HERE to download pictures [tab]

    Still on a mission to make my mouse redundant, is it possible to click on the "Click here to download picture"] message using the keyboard rather than the mouse? Thanks Mat G

    Mat,

    1. In Outlook 2010 you can use the tab key until the option is highlighted (this can take a lot of tabs!).
    2. Then press the Right-Click key on your keyboard (the one that looks like a menu w/mouse pointer).
    3. Use the Arrow Keys to Select then Enter.

    Thanks,got the drift, as you indicated numerous clicks (35) were required however when I hit the "right click" key on the keyboard (as directed) the multiple photos in the email simply highlighted [went black] so the photos were not revealed as they do if I hit the message in question using the mouse.

    Mat,

    Don't know why it didn't work for you it works just fine on my Win 8.1 Pro 64bit w/Office 2010 Pro SP-2 32bit software.

    ............not many things more unpredictable than computers, this is not the first time I have followed instructions to the letter and got different results than expected. However, having to hit the "Tab" key 35 times is obviously not one of the best ways to set aside the mouse. Cheers Dave.

    Not that I recommend it but you could change the automatic download settings.
