Hello all,

I have migrated a lot of folders from my account to an PST archive, there are over 100 folders that were moved. I need to access them constantly, so, I jump between inbox of my account to the PST archive, however, it is a bit annoying as I need to expand / collapse the folders of PST archive. I have been using FAVORITES to access some certain folder from the PST archive or used SHORTCUTS (see the attached screenshots), however, those are of limited use. Recently I have discovered a nice article by Danny De Roovere, which outlines nicely on how to move mail items to a folder via one single click. My question is does anyone know of in a way similar to what Danny De Roovere had made, however, to make access some folder instead of moving email message. That is I need to open a certain folder / sub-folders from either PST archive and / or account in one single click. Any ideas?

Without knowing the mentioned article, you can move emails based on criteria like subject, sender, etc. That doesn't work for opening any folder. That is for a one-click solution you'll need 1 button per folder.

Hello Michael,

I have attached the file (MS Outlook - How to Move Mail Items to a Folder via One Single Click.pdf), this is one is very fancy to use to move email to pre-defined folders. I was wondering if anyone knows of a code that is executed in the similar way and created a panel with folder name, but for opening / accessing the folder, instead of moving the emails to the designated folders.

Hi ,
Command Bars were deprecated with Outlook 2010
Set CommandBar = myExplorer.CommandBars.add(Name:="Quick Access Folder", _
Position:=msoBarFloating, Temporary:=True)

Meaning there is nothing can be done about creating custom command bar?
