Saving the navigation pane layout in outlook 2007
« on: May 18, 2007, 11:33:34 PM »
I am trying to save the way my folder tree is expanded so it opens as such everytime I restart outlook. Does anyone know how to go about doing this? Currently, everything opens up collapsed which is hugely annoying. Any help is appreciated. Thanks!

Update check. Does anyone know of a way to have outlook leave all folders expanded how you set them up each time it starts up? I have been looking for an answer to this for months but cant find it. I am close to calling microsoft and paying $50 to get it fixed. PLEASE! I ask of you, help me!

I am not certain, but I believe it is under Tools>Customize>Options - I think it is the checkbox "Always Show Full Menus".

That controls the menus on the menubar, not the folders in the folder layout :-/

Ah, sorry.  On mine it works that way by default, so I am trying to figure out how to turn that off to help you.  I thought that did it, but I guess not.  I will keep looking for you too.

It most definitely is possible, since that is how it is working for me.  Why, though, is another question.  When I open a folder in the Navigation pane, then close Outlook, it saves it that way for when I reopen it again.  I am just not sure what changes that behavior.  I am certain it is a registry key, but it seems like you shouldn't have to hack that just to fix it.

Pop.  Are you in Folder view or Mail view?  Folder view collapses everything, Mail view keeps them open.
