Navigating Outlook Favorites

I have these four favorites defined in Outlook:

From the inbox, I could hit Shift+F6 to get into the Favorites area but sometimes I would end up in no man’s land and couldn’t figure out how to get back into the inbox. So, god forbid, I had to use my mouse. I wrote this macro:

And added it to the fourth position on my QAT. Now I can press Alt+4 to cycle through my favorites. And I’ve only hit Alt+F4 accidentally about a dozen times.

  1. I’ve hit Alt+F4 when I just wanted to close the active workbook in Excel. Swearing ensues.

  2. Could you not simply use Ctrl+Shift+I as the universal shortcut for returning to your Inbox?

Posting code? Use <pre> tags for VBA and <code> tags for inline.
