Windows Mail newsgroups and keyboard shortcuts

Discussion in 'Windows Vista Mail' started by Richard Perry, May 16, 2007.

  1. When I am reading newsgroups, I am using Ctrl+U to advance to the next
    unread message. When I reach the last unread message in the newsgroup, it
    asks if I want to advance to the next unread newsgroup. Of course I answer
    yes, and I am brought into the next group.

    However, I cannot continue to use Ctrl+U to keep reading until I use my
    mouse to click on either the group, message header, or message before I can
    continue to use the keyboard shortcuts.

    Is this a bug, or do I have a configuration issue?

    It is a bug.

    I put the Next Unread button on the toolbar and use that, mouse is in hand
    ready to click on a message.

    There are issues with Ctrl+H & Ctrl+J too, M$ are showing an interest in the
    problem .

  3. Hi Richard,

    Based on my testing, I can use Ctrl+U to keep reading in different unread
    newsgroups. So, I think that it is not a bug.

    When you are switch to the next unread newsgroup, press the Tab key instead
    of using the mouse to highlight the group. And then are you able to
    continue use Ctrl+U?

    If anything is unclear or if you have any other concerns, please don't
    hesitate to contact me.

    From my testing, Tab has no effect when arriving in the next newsgroup.

    Why in the world would you have a 2 key combination, instead of a single key
    "N" like Agent?

    Capital "N" counts as one and a half keys.

    YES it is a bug.
    reported during beta and was not felt to be important enough to fix.








    When I am reading newsgroups, I am using Ctrl+U to advance to the next
    unread message. When I reach the last unread message in the newsgroup, it
    asks if I want to advance to the next unread newsgroup. Of course I answer
    yes, and I am brought into the next group.

    However, I cannot continue to use Ctrl+U to keep reading until I use my

  9. I simply use the space bar to scroll through all the posts,
    but it doesn't allow going to the next newsgroup. No big deal.

  10. Hi Richard,

    It was a bug reported in the Windows Vista Beta 2 version. However, I think
    that you are using the RTM version of Windows Vista.

    Run "winver" and let me know the exact version of Windows Vista system on
    your computer.

    Also, please go to Microsoft Update site to check and install all available
    updates to see if it works.

    If anything is unclear or if you have any other concerns, please don't
    hesitate to contact me.

    Sincerely,

  13. You're welcome.
    I want to encourage you and other Microsoft reps to participate in
    this newsgroup. Granted, Windows Mail looks like an abandoned
    step child now that Windows Live Mail is scheduled to replace it.
    Hopefully once that beta starts, we will see more interaction with
    MSFT reps.

  14. They should fix the software they have instead of writing new buggy
    software.

  16. Hi Richard,

    Press CTRL+SHIFT+U to go to the next unread newsgroup conversation to see
    if it works.
