When we first open Outlook, our Mail Box appears with a default view. What happens if we want to change this View in some other one that works out better for us? What happens if we want to have more than one View to choose from, depending on our needs? All we have to do is to follow the steps below in order Save the Views that we have created.

First we must select the View tab and from the area of the ribbon named Current View, we select the command Change View as shown in the image below. Once the Change View command is selected the drop down menu appears where we select the command Save Current View As A New View.

Save Current View

Once the Save Current View As A New View is selected the Copy View window appears as shown in the image below. In this window, we just type in the name of the view we want in the area below Name Of New View.

The New View can be used on one of the following:

  • This Folder, Visible To Everyone
  • This Folder, Visible Only To Me
  • All Mail And Post Folders

All we have to do is to activate the check box next to where we want to apply the view.
