Quick Tip: Move Folders in Outlook

When you want to categorize all of your email messages in Outlook a lot of people use Folders to achieve this.  The traditional drag and drop is a good way to keep them organized.  However, in the blustering fury of your day, how many times have you caught yourself accidentally dragging a folder into another where it is not supposed to be?  I caught myself doing that today and thought I would share this quick tip.

In the Navigation Pane under Mail Folders just right click the folder located in the wrong spot and select Move “folder name”.

In the Move Folder dialogue box (you won’t be able to drag and drop) Highlight the correct location to move the folder.  In this example I want it in my Inbox folder.  Click OK and that’s it.  The folder will now appear where you originally meant it to.
