Update: You can actually press Ctrl+O to Pop-Out and Escape to discard (Source).Sometimes there are these buttons you can click on with the mouse, but all you want is a nice little keyboard shortcut to keep your hands on the keyboard. Tom Ward from Viligant.IT asked whether there is a shortcut for the new “Pop-Out” and “Discard” Buttons for the Quick Reply Function in Microsoft Outlook 2013. Turns out there are no keyboard shortcuts and we haven’t found a way to configure Outlook in the desired way. (While you can change the default behavior to “always pop-out replies” that’s not what Tom wanted). To always clicks these buttons with the mouse is nasty, because most of us are still writing their emails with the keyboard ;-) so it helps when you can keep typing instead of reaching for that little bugger (the mouse / track-pad). At KeyRocket we can’t stand the missing shortcuts so we’ve built a simple Outlook 2013 Add-In for Tom and you. It works simple:
- Download the Outlook 2013 Add-In
- Install the setup.exe
- Use Ctrl+Shift+P to Pop-Out and Ctrl+Shift+D to Discard when you are selecting/editing a quick reply.
