Some of us have very organized folders for our Outlook email. While this can be a great thing, it can also make it hard sometimes when searching for a specific email, especially if we can’t remember what folder we have place it in. When you click on the search bar (which is found right above your most recent emails), a new tab automatically opens up where you can set your search settings. Outlook will default to searching just the folder you are in, but in this new tab, in the Scope group, you can change the selection to All Mail Items and it will search all your folders.
