How to Add a Folder on Outlook

Determine the folders you would require to create

Survey your outlook account and determine how you want to use new folders. You can make different folders for your Emails, Calendar and Tasks. In your email folders you can quickly access mails that you want to correspond in near future. In calendar folders, you can save calendar with specific dates and schedules. In task folders, you can assign folders to the name of your colleagues or different aspects of your work.

Open your Outlook application

In the Outlook window, click on “File” and navigate to “Folder” option. In the “Folder” window, click the “New Folder” option, which will open a naming box.

Fill out details about the box

First name the folder you just created. Now depending upon your need, determine the type of folder you have created. You can choose between mail, calendar, task, contact and few others. Also decide where you want to put the folder, for example you can put email folders under “Inbox” while calendar folders can be kept under “Calendar”.  Close the box once you are finished with filling the details.

Another way of adding a folder

You can also add a folder directly in the area of Outlook you are currently working. For example right-click on the “Inbox” of the Mail section and choose “New Folder” option which will open the naming box. Follow the same instructions as above to fill the required details.

Add subfolders if you want

If you need to further organize your folder, you can add subfolders in your folder. Simply right click on the folder you have just created and follow the same instructions in making the subfolder.
