Left Pane folder icons
When the Left Pane is collapsed, it should still show folder icons, as it is, there's no way to switch folders.
I'd rather be able to not have the "Files" folder at all. I will never use it and find it extremely annoying.

I have used Outlook for years (and love it) but just lately I see that Files and Favorites are at the top. Can't believe I never noticed that before. My main question is under the Files heading, what is the 'Manage Files" in red for???
I click on it and lots of my emails are there? They appear to be email I have sent with an attachment. Hmmm?

The Left Pane has a new "Files" category above Folders, that constantly opens after I close it, showing me attachments on emails I've often already deleted. I absolutely hate this feature with a burning passion. Being able to delete or move this category down and away from view would be really fabulous. Being able to customize that entire left panel and arrange all the folders exactly where I want them, rather than where Outlook tells me they should be, would be an extremely helpful option. When this interface was just plain old Hotmail, things like this were easy to set up, now that it's fancy Outlook, the iterations get more and more bogged down with "options" and "features" I don't want or need and can't get rid of.
don't like the left pane collapsed, how to keep it open?
Folder Icons are needed on the left handed side. This idea of just words makes it hard to see things, it is so much better to see Junk Email with its icon then Inbox which has no icons.
Please hide the left pane by default. Never/Ever use the favorite folder and I really do not want to see it.
