Hello,

I recently upgraded to Outlook 2010.  Since doing so, all of the items in my email folders have been grouped according to how much time has passed since they arrived.  That's a nice feature but can someone tell me how to disable it so that there is no grouping?

Thanks b

Go to View > View Settings button in the Current View section > Other Settings button > uncheck the Show items in Groups checkbox in the Grid lines and Group Headings section.

Thanks yobri, that's just what I was looking for!

Is there any way to set it as a global setting?  It seems that if I uncheck the box, it only applies to the current folder (i.e. other folders are unchanged).

Hello Steve,

there is no global setting for this, as far as I know, but this makes sense, since each folder may have different view settings, based on the items stored in it.

But there's a quicker way than going through the ribbon: right-click on any column header, then select Arrange By and untick the Show in Groups option

IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

View tab > Change View button in the Current View section > Apply Current View to Other Mail Folders. Select your folders accordingly.
