Navigate the feature areas in Outlook on the web

Outlook on the web lets you navigate by using Ctrl+F6 to skip from one feature to another, such as the Toolbar or the Inbox. No matter which feature you are in, you can press Ctrl+F6 to move to the top of the next feature.

CTRL+F6 cycles through the features in order, just like a Tab key moves to tab stops. The order of feature areas is: Microsoft 365 app launcher, Search box, Folders navigation pane, Toolbar, Inbox, and Reading pane.
