Outlook: How to Find the Folder Path of an Email Found in Search Results

Which Folder is this?

You might have noticed, that Microsoft Office Outlook’s Search feature has been presumably programmed by the dumbest programmers on earth: by a regular Microsoft developer.

What’s the first thing you as a user would like to know when you are looking for a message? The answer: which folder it is at! And of course, if you use Outlook’s dumb search feature, it will show you a list of found messages, but not where they are located at.

As usual, you will have to use a workaround for this.

Click on the message, and then press ALT+ENTER. And it will show you which folder it is located at:

Outlook Search Results Message Folder

Unfortunately, if you have several folders with the same name, or sub folders, you won’t be able to determine which one.
