  1. Thank you for very useful list! Btw any chance to create shortcut (.lnk) with specific parameter to launch e.g Windows Live Contact, Calendar?

  2. @Amirz I am not sure how you want to use the shortcut. If you want to run calendar,
    1. press WIN+R (to open run command dialog).
    2. Type the command ‘wincal’ (without quote signs) and press enter.

    This will open calendar.

    For Windows Live Contacts, run the command wlmail. This will open windows live mail. Then press CTRL+SHIFT+C to open contacts. For other shortcuts of windows live mail, read this post.

  3. What keys am I “accidentally hitting” to delete an email I am in the middle of writing? !!!!
    The body of my email disappears before I am finished composing.

  4. Thank you for your very useful list!

    I see a key for saving attachments, but i don’t see a key for opening attachments.
    I’m looking for a possibility to easily open emails and
    (if included)_attachments.
    This is for a blind person. OS windows 7 and (unfortunaly) Live mail.

    Thanks in advance.

  5. certainly like your website however you have to take a look at the spelling on several of your posts. A number of them are rife with spelling issues and I in finding it very troublesome to tell the truth nevertheless I will definitely come back again.

  6. The shortcuts listed DO NOT HAVE one for MANUALLY RECEIVING mail. I am new to this mail program and do not have a SEND/RECEIVE button in the toolbar. Guess I’ll go back to Thunderbird…it had a “get mail” button in the menu.

  7. i am visually impaired an shortcut keys are essental to me with using the computer. is live mail shortcut keys anything like outlook express or outlook?

  8. Your list includes inexistent keys: E.g. Alt+e+o for (Copy to folder), ctrl+shift+V (Copy to folder)
    At the same time, existent keys are missing from your list: E.g. Ctrl+C (Copy)
