Are there shortcut keys for adding/removing message columns
Hi. I'm blind and use both JAWS and NVDA to access my computer and its apps. I want to change the configuration of message columns. I have looked at the help file and it tells me that I have to right click with the mouse to access the columns. Given that I don't use a mouse and use keyboard shortcuts, do any exist? Cheers.

Sorry no luck so far in finding a suitable solution. Located a bug on this which explains the issue.
Located the following on internet: read comment by Brian Vogel to Christopher. Best to read it in context....maybe it means something to you. "....... Columns are shifted in Thunderbird via drag and drop. If you can get focus on a given column heading, the JAWS 15 keystroke sequence for grabbing something to drag it is (presuming INSERT as JAWS KEY) INSERT+CTRL+Num Pad Slash. What I can't find is after that is how JAWS has you move the mouse to the left or the right from where it is. Once you've got a column heading set for dragging the only directions you can move with it are left or right, so if you know the keyboard keys to use to go to the left/right use those. I would presume that the Drag and Drop key sequence must be hit to initiate the drag and again to activate the drop, but this is not clear from the documentation......" https://groups.io/g/blindtech/topic/reordering_columns_in/1751125?p=,,,20,0,0,0
If you manage to find a method using JAWS as described above, please post some information as it may help others.
Although the previous comment mentions drag and drop column headers, I'm assuming that if you can use JAWS to select a column heading then you can select the 'select columns to display' icon located far right of column headers (left click opens menu) and get a drop down menu and use the arrow keys to move up and down the list.
I do not use JAWS, so I'm reading between the lines when interpreting the information contained at that link.
