Organizing emails by thread arranges your messages into conversational threads based on the subject of the emails. In short, it combines messages with matching subject lines into one email.
Some users find this feature convenient, others find it difficult to locate emails quickly as it automatically collapses the content into a conversational thread. As a result, some users find that they end up missing important messages.
Likely we can quickly and easily change this option and revert back to the traditional way of handling emails. This article will show you how to turn off the organize emails by thread option in Outlook on mobile.
There is no official setting to hide of the “Favorites” folder section from the sidebar on outlook.live.com.
- Note there is a setting one for the desktop Outlook app to hide Favorites: View > Folder Pane > Favorites (uncheck)
However, hiding the Favorites folder section on the online version may be quickly and easily accomplished by simply removing all nested sub folders from the Favorites folder section.
To remove a sub folder from the Favorites folder section simply right mouse click on any sub folder and select “Remove from Favorites“.
Once all sub folders have been removed the Favorites folder section the entire Favorites section should automatically be hidden.

Changing the location of a Microsoft Outlook Exchange offline cache data file, those ending with a file extension of “.OST”, is not as straight forward as changing the file location of an Outlook “.PST” file. However, it is possible and this article will cover how to do so.
The easiest way to change the directory where the Outlook OST file is located is to set the “ForceOSTPath” registry key. However, you need to set that key before you add the email account to your profile. Not to worry if the account has already been added. Simply remove the account and add it back after setting the ForceOSTPath registry key.
