Access folders with the left sidebar collapsed
I like having the left sidebar collapsed as it reduces wasted screen real estate. However, I occasionally need to access other folders like Sent, Archived, etc which means I have to collapse and expand this sidebar every time to see those items. It would be great to have another method of switching folders while keeping this sidebar collapsed.
Note: this should also apply to calendars, people, notes, and tasks.
Currently when you minimize the left navigation it shows the respective icons but does not show unread count for email or tasks.

When using new outlook, add a mechnism for folder selection without having to unhide and rehide the sidebar.
