Can not move subfolder to a folder of the same level as inbox/drafts folder
I have one subfolder and I cant move it to the root level (same level as inbox/junk email/draft/sent items)
You can do this today!
You can drag a subfolder to the top level folders and it will appear there. Alternatively, you can right click on a folder name and select “Move”. This will let you move the folder anywhere.
We will look at updating the text to make it clearer.
I want to change a subfolder back to be a main folder again. I used to do this - by clicking on the subfolder name and dragging it and hovering on "Folders" until it said "Move to Base". This doesn't work any more.

Can't promote subfolders to folders. I made a folder a subfolder of another folder, and can't find a way anywhere to drag it out of the folder and make it a top-level folder again in the new React UI.
Big problem, I missed some very important mail
Can't move a folder to the root level, only create a new one. If you do drag a folder that is subfolder of say Inbox, you can only drag it to be an sub folder of an existing folder in the root.
this is so lame that there is no way to do this :(

There is currently no way to make a mail subfolder back to a normal folder, thank you very much, say if you have accidentally grabbed it in futile hope to be able to re-organize the placement, as that too is set in stone alphabetically. Do you think you could actually do something in benefit to your users?
Agreed this is a horrible change. I can't believe they would remove such a standard basic feature such as being able to drag and drop folders into your desired order. Now dragging and dropping just makes that folder a subfolder of another one. The solution to this problem on their support page is: "If you accidentally make a folder a sub-folder, create a new top-level folder and copy all your email from the sub-folder to the new top-level folder. " Hilarious. Outlook.com has become the joke that Internet Explorer always was and look what happened to that. It died just like Outlook.com will with all these terrible design flaws. It's embarrassing.

stop putting **** out that does not work. Folder online accidentally moved to sub folder. Cant move back. if I cant move it back I should not be able to move down. Fix your ****.
Could not move subfolder to mainfolder
I accidentally moved top folder, so it became a sub folder of other folder. I tried dragging out but it can only become sub folder of others, no way to make it top folder. This is an amateur level.
Please allow sorting folders and sub-folders. Preferably alphabetically.
It is really cumbersome and inefficient to look through an entire list of folders when they're in near-random order, or merely in the order in which they were created.
I recall seeing an option to be able to get a subfolder out of it's subfolder position, and put it in with the main folders.. I can no longer do that.
i accidentally moved an important folder by just clicking on it. NOW I can't move it back. I can only move it INTO OTHER FOLDERS. Before all your stupid changes you could.
I don't want to have to deal with your stupid changes every year.
my suggestion is quit screwing with us by making LESS effective changes, and let me move the folder where *I* want it.
here's an idea, if somthing works. LEAVE IT ALONE!
New Folders created do not appear in alphabetical order anymore.

Please add the feature to organ the mail folders by alphabetical order.

Can't move a subfolder to the top-level. Can only move it to a subfolder of a different folder.
Why, oh why, did they make the folders so complicated? Why do they not even show until the three bars are clicked? Why is there no sane human overseeing the geeks who have no common sense when they make these changes? I need the Inbox, Drafts, Deleted Items, Sent Items, and Archives. Some of these are not even available in the "Add favorite" column. Dumb. Stupid. Geeks.

Cannot find a way to move a subfolder to the top level. No UI for managing folders.
How do I move my junk email, and deleted email, folders back up to the top?
If I create a new folder in my Inbox, it places it directly under the Inbox folder, which is then separated from all the other folders by the Junk Email, Drafts, Sent Items, etc. before getting to the alphabetical folders. I can't move the new folder down to the alphabetical folders. Please advise.
