If you use A LOT of folders in Outlook to keep your email messages organized, you may find yourself scrolling up and down the list to locate a particular folder. (If you use rules, you may miss new messages if a particular folder is out of your view)
To find the folder you need quickly, (instead of scrolling) you can add your frequently accessed folders to the favorites section in the Outlook Navigation pane.
TO SHOW FOLDERS IN YOUR FAVORITES
• Right-click the folder you want to add, and then on the shortcut menu, click Show in Favorites
• Repeat this for each folder that you want to add. Note: Folders must be added individually.
• Note: When you add a folder to Favorite Folders in the Mail pane, in the Navigation Pane the folder stays in its original location, it’s just moved up to the top for you to easily see.
