Make Outlook 2007/2010/2013 search ALL folders instead of just the current folder

Search in Outlook 2007, 2010 and 2013 is awesome. Depending on the way you work, this little tweak will save you a little time every time you need to do a search for emails.

Outlook (by default) searches emails in the current folder you are in. The Search results also come up with a link at the bottom to “Try Searching all Mail Items”. I find myself ALWAYS clicking on the Search All link as I rarely bother to move to the relevant folder first.

Here’s a quick setting changing that will force Outlook to search all mail items by default.

In Outlook 2010/2013, click File-Options and then click the Search tab to display Search Options.

Click All folders and then click OK

In Outlook 2007, click Tools-Options and then click the Search Options button on the Preferences tab to display the Search Options box.

Click All folders and then click OK.

It’s a small tweak but it could save you a lot of clicks.
