I have a dozen of mail accounts and hundreds of folders in thunderbird.

Is there a way, shortcut or extension, to collapse all of them at once ?

[edit:] i'm running Ubuntu

Not according to Thunderbird's keyboard shortcut list: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/keyboard-shortcuts

You'll need to get a little more creative, I think. Maybe an AutoHotKeys script?

  • AutoHotKeys seems to be specific to windows but I'm running Ubuntu. It looks quite complex to use anyway.

  • Hi, can you help with where to find the command to assign in the AutoHotKeys?
