Show full folder path when hovering over an item from a search result
Show full folder path when you hover over an item when you have performed a search. Currently the hover only shows the folder where the item is located, but the folder can be a sub folder which makes it more difficult to find.
Related with this suggestion, it would be nice a new option "Open its folder", or "Open folder where it is located" or something similar, in the contextual menu appeared after right click in an email. When clicking on this new option, Outlook could open that fodler, or maybe a new Outlook screen pointing to that folder sould be opened.
I do not understand how a so simple and so necessary option is missing version after version, and why users' suggestions (I have seen many) keep being ignored over and over. What is going on with this feature?
Rather than having to hover over an item, just show the path -- like you USED TO DO :)
why doesn’t Outlook have a feature, like the Windows folders do, where you use search, find something you’re looking for, then right click and it says “open folder location”?

Our internal folder structures ends always with the Year this mail was received/ send. In the path before are information about the subject and relation . So it is the most important function to see the full path, because nearly all paths ends with 2017 or 2018 etc...

I have a big "folder" structure to organize mi mails. Folder, sub folder, subsubfolder. I would like to know the whole list of folders where a mail is stored. Currently I can only view the first level.
When using "Move to" to move a mail quickly to a recently used folder, it can be a source of error when you use several different folder with different path but same name.
Ex : Client/Project & Contact/Project would both appear as "Project" solely.
It would be better if a tooltip could show the full path when hovering.
