Windows From the Keyboard Tips, Enable BCC field in Outlook, July 1, 2020

Hello. This is Gerry Chevalier from the GTT Edmonton Chapter. This weekly blog provides tips that I find useful as a keyboard user of Windows. The information is for Windows10 and Office 365, although many tips still apply to older versions. The tips do not require a screen reader unless specifically noted. Thus, the tips apply whether you are a keyboard user or low vision mouse user. Here is this week’s tip.
Outlook – How to Enable the BCC Field
Microsoft Outlook does not provide the BCC field by default. If you want to use the BCC field, you need to enable it as follows:
• Open a new message window.
• Press Alt+P to open the Options menu of the ribbon.
• Tab multiple times to reach the “Show Fields” item and press spacebar to enable the BCC button.
• Press Escape to exit the ribbon and return to your message.
Note that this need only be done once. Outlook will now offer the BCC field on all new messages.
