Outlook folders are out of order

For some odd reason the folders under my inbox rearranged themselves.  It used to be A-Z, now P is at the top and it goes down to A, then S-Y.  I'm not going to even try and figure out how this happened.  How do I correct it?

See attached.

Close Outlook then relaunch it with the switch below:

outlook /resetfolders

See if this reorders your folders. Keep in mind that your Favorite Folders pane will be cleared running this process.

It worked and didn't clear my favorites.  In my switch previously it had /recycle.  What is that for?

Starts Outlook by using an existing Outlook window, if one exists.
