Always Show Flagged Emails under Tasks

Hi Experts,

I am using Outlook 2010 and  Outlook 365 with MS Exchange . I heavily rely on Tasks, and often flag an email in order to make it as task.

I usually hide the folder pane in order to have more visibility, but I notice sometime the task goes to my Task folder for my email account and not to my To-Do List.

I have noticed that the between the two is that the To-Do List shows my flagged emails, where as my Task folder does not.

My question is, how can I make the Tasks always go to my To-Do List and perhaps make my other task folders hidden or deleted; or how can I make flagged emails also appear in my Task Folders?

Thank you,

A task is an item that you create in Outlook to track until its completion.
A to-do item is any Outlook item that has been flagged for follow-ups, such as a task, an e-mail message, or a contact.
so you can flag all your task to show up in the to-do list.

But how can I make the to do list be the default?

I am not getting what do you mean how to make it default??

if you go to View, To Do bar >> and select tasks, you will see all the flaged items including the tasks...
