To find all items in a specific category, you will need to do an Advanced Search. To do this, from the Look For/Search In line under toolbar in Outlook click on the Options drop-down and select Advanced Search.

When the Advanced Search window appears, click on the More Choices tab. Correctly type the category you wish to search for in the Categories field and then click the Find Now button. The search results should display at the bottom of the window.

If no results are displayed, you may have misspelled the category or have not assigned it to any items of the type you are searching.

To open any item in the search results, double-click on it in the search results.

Can't find the search... (see attachment).

If the search you are talking about is the one circled, it only looks into mail, I want to search the entire Outlook (email, task, calender, etc.)

Within Microsoft Outlook 2007, press CTRL+SHIFT+F.

When the Advanced Search window appears, click on the More Choices tab. Correctly type the category you wish to search for in the Categories field and then click the Find Now button. The search results should display at the bottom of the window.

If no results are displayed, you may have misspelled the category or have not assigned it to any items of the type you are searching.
