I was finally upgrading my PC from Vista to Windows 7 and of course had to go through the process of moving and restoring my preferred Windows settings. Yesterday, I finished configuring Outlook 2007 but this morning when I launched Outlook, I could not find the Favorite Folders at all, which was a bummer because I just put a lot of folders there last night.
Anyway, I finally figured out what to do and here are the steps I used to get the Favorite Folders in Outlook back.
How to Restore the ‘Favorites Folder in Outlook 2007
- Close Outlook.
- Click the Windows Start button in the lower, left corner of the screen.
- Click Run.
- Type Outlook.exe /resetnavpane.
- OpenOutlook again.
- From the View menu, click the Navigation Pane and voila! now you can select the Favorite Folders option again.
Hope this works for you too!
