Use the keyboard to quickly move messages and navigate folders. First of all, use one of the following keyboard shortcuts:
- Shift+M opens a context menu that allows you to move the currently selected messages
- Shift+G opens a context menu that allows you to navigate to the folder you've entered
Then enter parts of the folder you want to move the message to. Pressing Enter will move the message to the first entry in the search results. If you'd rather use the context menus, the Move To/Copty To context menus have also been modified to use the quick folder move menu.KNOWN ISSUES
Unfortunately using the keyboard to navigate between the menu items in the dropdown is hindered by bugs in the Mozilla Platform. I have a workaround in progress, please stay tuned. Until then, you will have to enter a more unique portion of your folder name.
Using Shift+G to open a folder not shown in the view uses a Thunderbird native function to select the folder. This function changes to the default view (all folders) if the folder is not visible (i.e contains no unread messages).
