How to Add Folders to an Outlook Inbox

If you have a lot of email in your Outlook inbox, important messages can get lost easily. You probably only look at the newer messages each time you log in and forget about the rest. Instead of letting your inbox get full and unorganized, create folders to move important messages that you want to keep but don't need to look at now.

Step

Open your Outlook program.

Step

Select your inbox.

Step

Click on "Folder" on the top menu bar. Select "New Folder."

Step

Name the folder.

Step

Click "OK." The folder now shows up on the left under the inbox.

Step

Move the emails you want filed away into that folder.
