Rearrange your Outlook groups

Would you like to customize your Outlook Bar by changing the default order of the groups (Outlook Shortcuts, My Shortcuts, Other Shortcuts)? Here's how. Change the order in which groups appear on the Outlook Bar:

  1. In Microsoft Outlook on the File menu, click Exit and Log Off. 
  2. Click the Start button on the Windows taskbar, point to Find, and then click Files or Folders. 
  3. In the Named box, type *.fav and then click Find Now. Files with the extension .fav will be listed. 
  4. Right-click the .fav file with the same name as your mail profile, click Rename on the shortcut menu, and then type a new name such as yourname.old. 
  5. In the Named box, type Outlbar.inf and then click Find Now. 
  6. Right-click the file and then click Open. 
  7. Look for the following section about one-fourth of the way down in the file:



Change the AddGroup entry order to the order you want. For instance, if you want the MailGroup (My Shortcuts) to be on top in the Outlook Bar, make the entry look like this:


  1. On the File menu, click Save. 
  2. Restart Outlook.

Outlook will use the .inf file to build a new .fav file and rearrange the order of the groups on the Outlook Bar. You will see a message asking you to wait while Outlook rebuilds the Outlook Bar.
