goto Folder from search list
when i have lots of folder that are nested, and I have done a search, it cam be very difficult to find where the messages are located. I would like the ability to see the path displayed in the search and the ability right click on the message in the search list and select goto Folder. This would place me in the folder where this message was found.
The "In Folder" column shows only the last folder and not the complete path to the folder where the message is in.
A right-click option "GoTo Folder" on that "in Folder" column would be very useful to go directly to that folder.
Someone commented that you can add "In folder". However, I have to to do that every single time I need to do a search, which is inconvenient (and no, I don't want this field to be a default for all views, because I don't want it show up when I'm browsing the messages in a folder--I already know what folder I'm in!) And second, that column only tells you what the bottom level folder is, not the hierarchy. I have project for dozens (maybe hundreds) or projects, and each one has a subfolder for "Budget". If I see that a msg is in the "Budget" folder, that doesn't tell me where that folder is. I want a *hierarchical folder" field. FYI, you can open the msg, and do a special search--I think it's Ctrl-Alt-F--and then browse something, I forget what. But that's clumsy and a lot of work for s.t. that ought to be automatic. The OP's suggestion is exactly right (and maybe open in a different window, so the search is still there if you need to come back to it).

right click on columns in outlook, view settings, columns, dropdown to all mail fields, add in folder
I have over 100 folders in my Outlook and it would be great if I could just search by 'folder name'
