Hello,

In Outlook (2010), is there a way to place individual Quick Steps into the QAT?  If not, is there another way to activate them besides having the ribbon open?

Thanks

Although I don't know of a way placing a Quick Step in the QAT, you can assign preset Shortcut Keys to your existing Quick Steps.

From the Home tab, go to the Quick Steps section > click the down arrow > click Manage Quick Steps... > select your Quick Step from the Quick Step: window > click the Edit button > go to the Optional section at the bottom and then change the Shortcut key dropdown box to a key combo that you want to assign to your Quick Step.

Of course, if you are creating a new Quick Step, you won't have to click the Edit button to assign the shortcut key as you can assign it during the creation process (the Edit button instruction above is to add the Shortcut Key to an existing Quick Step).

If you assigned CTRL+SHIFT+1 to a Quick Step, all you need to do is press the CTRL, SHIFT and 1 keys on your keyboard simultaneously to enact the Quick Step.
