Join Gini von Courter for an in-depth discussion in this video Add a folder to Favorites, part of Outlook 2016: Efficient Email Management.
- [Voiceover] With my folders displayed…in the Nav pane on the left,…not only can I see my inbox,…my deleted items,…my sent items and so on,…I can also access my calendar,…I can access my tasks.…But normally when I'm working in the inbox,…I'm not showing my folder list.…I'm normally showing my mail folders right here.…And notice at the top it says…"Drag your favorite folders"…right here.…Why might we want to do that?…Well,…now that I have these folders that are subfolders,…and I can have subfolders of subfolders in my inbox,…and subfolders in subfolders in subfolders,…it's actually easy to forget that…you have all these folders,…and you might actually want to make sure that…you're keeping track of the most important ones.…
If I wish, I can drag this folder here.…It still appears here,…but it also appears on my list of favorites.…I can arrange these in any order that I wish.…Normally what I like to do is list my inbox…at the top of my favorites list right there.…So I don't need to have my inbox expanded…to be able to go to a particular folder in my inbox.…
