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

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