You need regular access to a particular folder within your computer or network library to do your work or file new emails. You don’t want to navigate your way through the folder system (especially on the network!) each time. Here’s how to achieve that with Outlook 2007. This updates my earlier advice for Outlook 2003 one-click folder access
To include an often used folder within your Office 2007 library:
- Click the Start button on the bottom left of your screen
- Now click on your user name in the pop up box.
- In the pane on the right of the dialogue box navigate to the folder you want to add to your short cuts
- Right-click on that folder name and select ‘Include in Library’ and then select where you want that folder displayed.
- To see your network folders, click on ‘Network’ in the left pane and navigate / right click as above to select.
- Click the X on top right of the dialogue box to close.
- To remove the folder from the library once you no longer need regular access to it simply right click on it within the library pane and select ‘Remove location from library’ Note that this does not delete the folder – only the short-cut to it in the library.
