    Send button in Outlook (OLK 2000)

    Send button on tool bar does not respond to Alt + S. Why? I am using XP Home edition. TMradius1

    <img src=/S/confused.gif border=0 alt=confused width=15 height=20> I think the key combo for Send is Ctrl-Enter ... or Alt + F + e ... ?

    Clarification: The small arrow next to the Send button on the tool bar says "Alt+S". That does not work.
    Keying Alt + F + e (accessing the F menu) yields "Send using" which further yields "Alt + S" .
    Keying Alt + S, Enter does send the message to the Outbox.
    Keying Alt + S in Outlook Express does send message to Outbox..

    You are correct, and Alt-S should work, and it does on my OL 2003. Are you running any macros or add-in's which might have usurped Alt-S? Does the Icon itself work?

    Thanks for the reply.
    1. No macros are in play. (The computer is too new yet)
    2. Yes, the Send button works with the mouse.
    3. Other Tools on the tool bar work with the Alt key and the underlined letter.
    I know that the world will not come to an end if I don't have that shortcut but I figured that with all the brains splattered out there on the Internet I should take advantage of it. Besides it's interfering with my sleep now. TMRadius1

    Hi,
    The fact that Alt+S and Enter works leads me to assume that Alt+S does at least highlight the Send button? If so, then I would suspect you have another button visible with an Alt+S shortcut (e.g. if you've moved the Signature button onto the main toolbar). What happens if you press Alt+S twice - does another button get highlighted?
    Regards,

    No, Alt+S, highlights only the Send button. There is no other tool with underlined S. There is a Signature tool which works OK but it does not enter the picture. Pressing Alt+S twice does nothing more than pressing Alt+S once. Nothing else highlights. I might try the Repair function. TMRadius1

    Before repair, if you havn't heavily customized your toolbars, you can reset those using Tools>Customize..., Toolbars tab, highlight the relevant bar (Standard, I think) and click Reset. Might as well do all of them.....

    Hi:
    I did the customize on all (no effect). I did the Detect and Repair and still no effect.
    Added note, probably meaningless: Alt+S raises the 'button' as I mentioned before. Clicking elsewhere restores the button to its previous state. The mystery deepens. Although I love mysteries, some can be a pain in the. TMRadius1

    One other thing to check, if you can find a convenient way, is whether Ctrl+Alt+S might be a Windows shortcut key. These can be assigned to shortcuts, but I'm not sure where you can find out the ones that already have been assigned. (Admittedly, I haven't searched very hard.)

    Re: Send button in Outlook (OLK 2000)

    One thing comes to mind after these exchanges with all of you knowlegeable people. Everything pointed to this computer and this installation of Office 2000. Using some common sense, I went to my other computer (the old 133mhz that was replaced by this 2.8 gig unit), set it up again and tested Outlook (from the same installation disks.) And Ctrl+S worked OK. I assume that we all agree I should simply reinstall Off2K. Or suffer the Ctrl+S problem as penance. TmRadius1

    Even if it looks as though I am talking to myself, I need to report to all of you the results of my last actions on this problem so that all of you can add it to your repertoire of knowledge.
    1. I tried Detect and Repair in Outlook but the problem persisted (see my last message).
    2. I used the Off2k disk 1 to "Repair" the installation. Then I tested Outlook. But the problem persisted.
    3. Instead of "Repair" I specifically reinstalled (or is it a repair function?) Outlook 2000 without reinstalling everything. On testing Outlook again, the Ctrl+S worked.

    Let me thank all of you for your inputs. We can consider this thread closed. Ciao! Frank (TMRadius1)
