In Outlook, unread messages are colored differently than messages that we have read. It is easy though for an email to be marked as read when we just had a quick look at it, and the message was important that we might have overlooked.

First, we must select the File tab in order to move to backstage view, and then from the drop down menu that appears we select the category Options from the left as shown in the image below.

What if our Inbox is full of read and unread messages and we need a way to focus on the unread messages only. How can we tighten our Inbox only to view the Unread Messages with just a few clicks?

The first option that is available is that we have to locate the Folder that we want to search for the Unread Messages. In the image below I have selected the Current Mailbox with all the new mail that has arrived. Some of them I have read and some I haven’t read. At the top left corner we notice that the All command is highlighted with a light blue color as shown in the image below. In the Search Pane we notice the Search Current Mailbox and at the right of the area we notice that the search will be done in the Current Mailbox.
