Re-ordering Outlook Bar

I have several groups currently set up in the Outlook bar at the left hand side of the screen.  I can drag the icons within each group, but I am wanting to change the order of the groups.  Every time I create a new group it is tagged to the bottom of the list, but I would like to move it into the middle somewhere.  Is there any way of re-ordering these groups without deleteing them & re-creating them??

Thanks & regards,

KAD

You should be able to pick the icons up and move them. As you hold down the mouse button and reposition the icon, you'll notice a text marker where it is about to set the icon down. Hope this helps.

I don't have a problem moving the icons.  I can re-order these, even move them between groups, it's the groups themselves that I want to re-order.  When you have the Outlook Bar visable, there are 3 groups by default - Outlook Shortcuts, My Shortcuts & Other Shortcuts.  I have since added 4 more groups to this list.  It's this list of groups that I want to change the order of.  Any thoughts??  KAD.

I'm sorry, I read that as FOLDERS, not as GROUPS. My apologies. I don't believe there is a way to re-order the groups.

Yes you can the way to do this is remove the groups then add new groups in the order that you want them in

I'd love to give you the points, but "I don't believe there is a way..." isn't really an answer.  I'll open it up again, but if there are no better answers, you can have the points...

KAD,

Why don't you rename the groups in the order you want and reorder (by dragging) the icons within the groups according to the new group names?

patedm,

It seems this is the quickest, most efficient way to do this...  I don't see why they couldn't have made these dragable....  Post this as an answer, and you can get the points.

KAD,

Rename the groups in the order you want and reorder (by dragging) the icons within the groups according to the new group names.  It's clunky but it works...

Glad to have helped.
