    Folder list in 2003 (2003)

    I want to get rid of the navigation pane buttons and display all of my folders (calendar, contacts, mail, and tasks) in the one tree view as it was in Outlook XP or 2000. Is there any way to do this?

    Yip there is... it is now found in the Go menu... Go Folder List (Ctrl+6)... you can also find the icon for this at the bottom of the Navigation Pane (the middle file folder icon). You can then customize the Navigation Pane through Tools, Options, Other Tab, Navigation Pane Options where you can turn on/off buttons showing in the pane, i.e., Calendar, Tasks, etc. Unfortunately, however, you cannot completely turn off the Navigation Pane! Hope this helped... enjoy... trish

    Yep. I just got converted to '03 at work yesterday, and spent most of the day customizing my setup. (Hence my scarcity here.)

    Now, who can tell me how to remove Group View from all my 200 or so PST Folders? Resetting the View only seems to work for New Folders. Do I gotta write some code?

    In addition to Trish's excellent advice, drag the taskpane down so only the information type icons (mail, cal, task, note, etc.) show, and then click the "configure buttons" drop down to hide/show icons/buttons you don't want. (I hid Journal.)

    Now, on the same subject, is it posible to get rid of the "Favorite Folders" in the Mail taskpane view?

    Menu, View, Arrange By, and then Show in Groups. This is a toggle on the last step and you will need to do this on EACH folder for they are ALL grouped.

    See thread starting at <post#=332078>post 332078</post#> for other problems with View.

    Grrr. Thanks, Dave. I'm back to newbie status; I'm kind of surprised by how different 2003 is from it's predecessors.

    Seem to have had mental dislocation! You can also click on the middle icon at the foot of the left hand panel - to show the Folder List.

    It looks like <!profile=JohnBF>JohnBF<!/profile> may have to write some code to loop through his 200 folders. You can Define Views to exclude Showing by Groups - it's under Other Settings. Not only is that hard to get to, however, you still have to revisit every Folder to make it stick.

    Deselecting all your Favorite Folders (right-click) in tree-view may shrink the Favorite Folders real estate. It looks, however, to be a "design feature" - as in "Who in their right mind would want to tinker with that?" <img src=/S/evilgrin.gif border=0 alt=evilgrin width=15 height=15>. If you put enough items into Favorite Folders, you can more or less make all other items disappear! <img src=/S/groan.gif border=0 alt=groan width=16 height=15>

    I may have, look for recursive code which assembles Folders nested to any depth into a Collection, here or in the VBA Forum. Through XP, I don't think Views were exposed in the VBA Object Model, though they may have been accessible through CDO hacks which I never learned to use.

    Unfortunately, after trying to customize my new Office 2003 installation 'til I'm blue in the face, I'm so far behind in my actual work, that I won't get a chance to look for a few days. Also the <img src=/w3timages/censored.gif alt=censored border=0> IT Admin have decide to restrict my machine more than before. They said they would give me "temporary" Admin rights for a few days so I could install my Palm software, then I'd have to get locked down like all the peons. (Oops, that was rude of me.) So I'm scrambing to sneak in all my tweaks before they lock me back down. <img src=/S/sigh.gif border=0 alt=sigh width=15 height=15>

    Trish, you win the prize. CTRL+6 or Go, folder list was exactly what I was looking for. Thank you. I could rant about how I hate the way Microsoft assumes to know what you want when they add "features" that you can't work around, but I digress.

    Thanks for your quick and knowledgeable advice.
