We have two buttons to switch between normal view & reading view in Outlook but F1 doesn't have any entry about what key we could use to switch between these buttons.

Anyone know about it?

    There does not seem to be a keyboard shortcut and since Outlook doesn't have the same macro capabilities as Word/Excel, this will be challenging. Nevertheless, some clever AutoHotkey could get the job done. I'll give this a shot later. :) – iglvzx Jun 21 '12 at 3:35

You can use AltF1 to cycle between normal/reading views.

    No, Alt-F1 does not cycle between Normal/Reading views. It cycles the Navigation Pane (the far-left column in the screenshot) between Normal/Minimized/Off. Similarly, Alt-F2 cycles the To-Do Bar (far right pane), and Ctrl-F1 cycles the Ribbon Bar. While useful, it takes all three shortcuts combined to mimic the Reading view. – Doug Apr 16 '13 at 14:21
