There seems to be a reply a bit back as this is on the problem with Outlook thread it seems. Look at the remote thread.
I understand now I've read that and also spoke to some geeks in virgin who say exposing your machine in this way is not good which I guess these days is fair comment.

I use apple mail and sometimes I have 5 views each with different folders open as often I forget what I'm doing or I'm at work doing my small business. It's cool but a resource hog if you are not careful.

How important is opening multiple folders? To my knowledge, I've never used a program that allows me to have to, three, or more folders opened. Many e-mail programs allow you to see all messages aggregated from the same folder in different accounts. For example, if you want to see all inbox messages from every inbox folder in your machine and you have three accounts, there is an aggregate folder that shows all inbox messages in one place.

I have this problem constantly. It is so bad now that I cannot use any
folder other than the one that is open.

For another problem, my computer was recently reset (office 365 and NVDA
were both among the programs reinstalled. This reset has allowed my
computer to finally get creators update (1703)). The problem with Outlook
is at it's worst.

saying it's an NVDA problem, it may be something to do with the interaction
between the information exposed by Outlook and how NVDA obtains it whichh
causes it. I doubt MS would do anything to solve it, so I just avoid
using that keystroke.

Hi everyone,

I am running Outlook 2016 on Windows 10 with the latest update of NVDA.

Over the past month, I have found that outlook stops and runs out of time
almost every time (four times a day) that I check my emails. I notice the
problem particularly when I try to swap between folders. This generates the
message that Outlook has stopped working and will close. Today, I
downloaded the newest update of NVDA and yet the problem is still persisting.

I unloaded NVDA and brought up JAWS. With JAWS running I am able to swap
between folders without any delay so I am convinced that NDA is causing the

Before loading JAWS, I had a very full outlook .pst file and reduced that
from 1.2g to 200mb. I have no addins so that can't be the cause.
Has anyone experienced this problem? Is there a known solution?

I would really value a response as I much prefer to use NVDA rather than JAWS!

All the best,
