We’re sorry people are experiencing issues here. We have gone back to the old behavior for the left-hand folder tree to always show since last year and we hope this has addressed most issues.

There are some reports in the comments about individual folders not showing up. In order for us to get to the bottom of the issue, please post as much detail as possible in your comments. What steps are you taking? Which browser/computer/operating system are you using?

Thank you for your help.

    I have 3 email addresses on Outlook, two on hotmail and one w/ "@outlook.com" The latter suddenly disappeared from my folder list; it shows up on my phone app but not on the computer. what up?

    I lost ALL folders under "FOLDERS ON MY COMPUTER" in the unforetold change to the NEW Widows/Outlook . Many are a great loss to me...letters that were precious to me from people that are no longer alive.
    I am still finding the new Outlook to be cumbersome to use.
    The old version was so easy and pleasant to use. Why can't we go back to that?!

    This is happening to me now in 2019!!! My "other" folder continues to disappear. Haven't heard anything from Microsoft Outlook folks!!!! Sent 4 messages at different times.

    Is this a forum where you can actually get answers, or just folks posting the same problem over and over?

    Why did my Junk email FOLDER disappear? Not just the messages in the folder, which I like to look over in case there is something important that went to junk mail...but the ENTIRE FOLDER is gone. Do not tell me to hover over the toggle button.

    There is a tiny icon comprising 3 horizontal lines at the top left corner. Clicking it toggles between Displaying and Hiding Folders.
    If you just hold the cursor on it, "Toggle Left Pane" will show as the explanatory note. . If it is a long list of Folders, one needs to scroll down.
    (And of course with all this excess spacing for mouseless tablet users with fat fingers, that may be a nuisance.)

    Junk, sent items, drafts and other listings I use frequently have disappeared from the left side margin on the screen when I am sending and reading my email. Where are they. I need them back on the screen.
