Does anyone know what the tab sequence is when writing email? I know that tab moves the cursor from To:, to Cc:, to Bcc: to subject. Where is the cursor going when hitting Tab after that. Hitting tab again goes to content field, but where is the cursor going between Subject and Content?

I ask because it seems like the cursor used to go straight from Subject to Content. Now it disappears (at least I can't figure out where it is going) for one Tab click. Moreover, hitting Shift-S while it is in disappear, the email sends. I can't find any references to Shift-S being a hotkey for sending email. And it only happens in that state between Subject and Content.

Weird. Though, of course, not the only weirdness in Outlook.

You'll think I am crazy, but I just tried sending an email to myself, (as I did yesterday when determining that shift-s was doing the sending), just to reconfirm the Shift-S behavior, and found that the tab sequence is now working correctly: Tab takes me from Subject to Body.

For a couple of weeks, through yesterday, this was the behavior. Not today.

Really.
I have no idea what was happening.

Did you reboot? Do you always reboot? If you don't always reboot, something running in the background could have done something to make it behave weirdly. Or it could be caused by a program you use frequently but haven't used yet today.

I reboot at least once a day.

I will keep the "running in background" idea in mind, investigate if it should happen again.
thanks for the suggestion.
