Chapter 3. Using Outlook's Tools > Using the Folder List

Using the Folder List

Outlook provides another method of viewing the folders within Outlook and your system: the Folder List. The Folder List displays the folders within any of the three groups (Outlook Shortcuts, My Shortcuts, or Other Shortcuts). From the list, you can select the folder you want to view.

To use the Folder List, first select the group (such as Outlook Shortcuts or Other Shortcuts) that contains the folders you want to view, and then select a particular folder (using the appropriate shortcut) from the Outlook bar to display the list (see Figure 3.4).

Figure 3.4. The Folder List shows all folders in the group you selected.


Tip

Pinning Down the Folder List When you open the Folder List button on a particular folder's name, the Folder List floats on top of the current folder window. Click the Push Pin button in the upper-right corner of the Folder List to pin down the list in the Outlook window. If you want to close the Folder List, click its Close (X) button.


Choose any folder from the list, and the Information Viewer changes to reflect your selection. If you want to display another folder in the Information screen, click the folder to display its contents.
