Outlook 2007: Restore the Favorites Folder

outlook-2007I 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.

  5. OpenOutlook again.
