Copy appointment via Mouse + CTRL not working in Outlook online

Christoph Fink 56 Reputation points

I do copy a lot of appointments in my outlook calendar as I use them to plan to work on specific projects I work on in parallel.

Until some time ago I could just move an appointment with the mouse and hold CTRL on the keyboard to copy the appointment to the new date/time.

But this stopped working and is really annoying as "right click -> duplicate -> select new date" is much slower to do the same 😥.

How can I get the old behavior to work again?

Other keyboard shortcuts like "n" for new appointments are working...

    Hi @Christoph Fink ,

    By "Outlook Online", are you referring to Outlook on the web accessed via using an M365 account?

    I just tried testing in my lab tenant and noticed that I can only move the event rather than "copy" when I use Mouse + CTRL in OWA. Is this what you are experiencing? If this is the case, seems currently there's no settings available in OWA to change the behavior.

    Given this, if possible, you can switch to Outlook desktop client where the Mouse+CTRL can still be used to copy the event:

    Meanwhile, I've just tried sending a feedback via the Feedback button. Hope this can be changed in the future.
