In Outlook 2016 running on Windows, I was able to hit Ctrl + K to do a lookup in the directory when I'm in the "to" email field and it'd find all the names matching. Now I'm using Outlook 2016 for Mac and I'm unable to find the keyboard shortcut that'll allow me to search the directory when I'm in the "to" field. Can someone help?

@Ahmad Kakar I had the same problem! Made me crazy. But I figured it out - start typing, then press the down arrow key to highlight "Search Directory" field, press ENTER, and it will search for what you typed. Then, either keep typing or use the arrow keys to select. When the right recipient is highlighted, press ENTER. If the right recipient is already selected the first time you press enter, just press enter again.
That field will slowly populated with your most contacted recipients, which will autocomplete without resorting to a directory search.
