Outlook 2016 UnCollapse Folders when opening Outlook

trinity2007 asked
Last Modified: 2018-02-22
I have 3 shared mailboxes in my outlook, in addition to my current inbox.  I would like to have these 3 other mailboxes expand when I open Outlook.  Trying to find that setting, but unable to find it.
Outlook 2016; Onsite Exchange 2010

Thank you

Expanded all the folders and subfolders, then went to one of the shared mailboxes.  I noticed the primary email account will stay expanded, just not the additional shared mailboxes.  Even if I open all the folders and subfolders on the shared mailboxes.  
Did the reset view option too.  
I thought previous versions of outlook would leave the folders expanded, perhaps 2016 settings somewhat different.
