Outlook Hack

So many things in Win­dows (and on a Mac/Linux machine for that mat­ter) require you to con­firm dele­tion, that it’s become a reflex to hit [Delete] & [Enter] in rapid suc­ces­sion. Sad­ly, the oth­er day I delet­ed the very hand “Unread Mail” from Out­look. It’s a very handy way to imme­di­ate­ly keep on top of incom­ing mail and I real­ly have come to rely on it. So, it took me a while to find a method to get it back (on Google Groups, inter­est­ing­ly enough), although it’s extreme­ly sim­ple. All you have to do is cre­ate a new Search Fold­er (right click on the Search Fold­er in you fold­er tree, select New) and drag it back up to the Favorite Fold­ers list. Tada.
