In the past I used about 80 sub-folders to keep my Inbox organized. The advancement of the Search features in Outlook makes finding emails so easy and accurate that I no longer worry about putting emails in the right sub-folder. But there is a lot more to searching in Outlook than the Search field. Today I’m going to highlight just a few of the more advanced options available.
When you click on the Search field, the Ribbon opens a new tab labeled Search Tools.
The Search Tools tab has many options that can speed up your searches. I often use the From and Recent Search options.
For even more options go to Search Tools – Advanced Find. Keyboard shortcut (Ctrl+Shift+F)
Below I used the Advanced Find feature to locate all the Reminder emails I sent last month.
