A common way to organize email in Microsoft Outlook is to use folders.  Once the folders are set up, you can drag and drop emails into those folders.  Or, you can click the Move button and use the arrow keys to navigate to the folder.

My preferred method is to use the keyboard shortcut “Ctrl Shift v” to open the Move box.  Then, I type the first letter(s) of the folder name to quickly select the sub-folder I want to use and press enter.  The email is stored in that folder.

Using this method depends on having a simple and consistent folder naming convention for folders.  If you have several nested sub-folders, this method could take more time than just dragging and dropping.

What is your favorite Outlook keyboard shortcut?
