In Outlook, Choose "Go" then "Folder List". On the left bar, at the very bottom, there should be a "Data File Management..." option - click on it. Click "Add..." then choose the PST file you want. Then choose the location for the PST file to create (or open if using an existing PST file). The new PST file will appear in the folder list on the left.
