How to sort your folder list the way you want it (Outlook 2000-2007)

By default, Outlook folders are organised in alphabetical order. If - over time - you've collected quite a few folders it can be cumbersome to scroll through your whole list. So take control - by using Favorite Folders.

Here's how:

  1. Click the folder you want to add and drag it to where you want it in the Favorite Folders area, above your regular folders.


  2. Right-click the folder you want to add and select Add to Favorite Folders from the shortcut menu.

Not happy with its spot a couple of weeks/months down the line? Simply drag it to its desired location in the list. Or to remove the folder from the Favorite Folders list, simply right-click it and select Remove from Favorite Folders.
