Windows 7: switching from Quick view back to Folder View

switching from Quick view back to Folder View

Hi All. Baffled again by Microsoft's incomprehensible format...

Set up a quick view this morning, (stupid move) and now cannot get back to my account folders view... so for example to view recently sent items, quick view will only allow me to see all 3000 - everything I have ever sent... WHY?

If I un-click the quick view option, there is nothing in the folders pane, how do I return to the 'account folders view'?, each with their own inbox, sent box, deleted item etc

WLM has an 'all inbox' option, is there an option for 'all sent' or all drafts' etc files that have not been moved to 'storage folders' but are still live like the 'all inbox' files?

Is there a way of simplifying this bloated all or nothing menu? So much simpler and user friendly - like menus and shortcuts that AREN'T hidden.

Cheers - any help greatly received

I'll assume you mean in WLM? If you click on Menu> Layout do you have these options? (I don't use WLM myself )

If so, is Show storage folders ticked?

Thanks Dude

That's very helpful and seems to have worked

I'm not a fan of WLM but I'm stuck with it for now (It's not designed to be user friendly... bring back the original Outlook Express, so simple - AND IT WORKED!) Can I ask what mail system you are using? I've looked through the 'best of lists' which give lots of info but don't really say which 'works' best

Cheers Mike

Expanding folders changes to Quick View

If I change the view of one folder, the view of all folders changes?!?
For example, if I change the view of one folder to "large icons" or to "list" or whatever, then ALL of the folders will have that view. But I want specific folders to have specific view types. How can I accomplish this?
