I'd like to change some OUTLOOK hot keys

I'd like CTL+F to do a FIND like in other apps

I'd like CTL+enter to do just a new line

I'd like ALT+F to Forward

I'd like ALT+ A to Forward as attachment

thanks
Phil

You will need autoit http://www.autoitscript.com/site/
The link below contains the files you need to create an .exe that will reside on your computer that will capture the hotkeys pressed and translate it into what you want presented to the program.

If you need help with this just let me know and I will post specific code


#Include <HotKey.au3>

Global Const $VK_ESCAPE = 0x1B
Global Const $VK_F12 = 0x7B

; Assign "F12" with Message() and set extended function call
_HotKey_Assign($VK_F12, 'Message', BitOR($HK_FLAG_DEFAULT, $HK_FLAG_EXTENDEDCALL))

; Assign "CTRL-ESC" with Quit()
_HotKey_Assign(BitOR($CK_CONTROL, $VK_ESCAPE), 'Quit')

While 1
    Sleep(10)
WEnd

Func Message($iKey)
    MsgBox(0, 'Hot key Test Message', 'F12 (0x' & Hex($iKey, 4) & ') has been pressed!')
EndFunc   ;==>Message

Func Quit()
    Exit
EndFunc   ;==>Quit
