My main email client is Outlook 2010 for Windows 7. I also have a Mac but I do not use it that much however on the MAC you have Outlook 2011.

In my Outlook 2010 for Windows 7, I have many many folders. There is one feature I would like to know if it is available or something similar which is on Outlook 2011 for the Mac.

On the Outlook 2011 for the mac you can go to: Top Menu > Message > Move > Choose Folder or press (SHIT+CMD "press" M)

This bring up a box where you can just type the beginning part of the folder and all the folders with that beginning appears (To search), you select the one you want and the selected emails move to that folder.

I hope I have explained it well.

Does anyone know if there is a plugin on Outlook 2010 or may I have just missed the function.

Thank you

Have you tried Shift-Ctrl-M? Checking the help document also might help. –  Ramhound Feb 14 '12 at 13:36
    
@Ramhound CTRL+SHIFT+M creates a new message. CTL+SHIFT+V is to move. –  CharlieRB Feb 14 '12 at 13:56

Welcome to Superuser. If I understand correctly what you are trying to do, this is available to you in Outlook 2010.

With the message(s) you want to move selected, you can use the "MOVE" button on the Home Ribbon which will show you a list of folders or choose "Other Folder". This brings up a list of folders available to move it to. You can type the first letter of the folder name you want to move it to in order to jump down the list.

This can also be achieved by "RIGHT" clicking on the message(s) you want to move and choosing from the pop-up menu.

FYI; here is a list of Outlook keyboard shortcuts. "MOVE" is among them. It is CTL+SHIFT+V.

Yes, but you cannot search the folder name? –  Arthor Feb 14 '12 at 16:36
    
You didn't say anything about searching by folder name. You might want to add that to your question. –  CharlieRB Feb 14 '12 at 16:43
    
I did " This bring up a box where you can just type the beginning part of the folder and all the folders with that beginning appear, you select the one you want and the selected emails move to that folder. " –  Arthor Feb 14 '12 at 20:32
    
You are right. I have added it in. Thanks –  Arthor Feb 14 '12 at 20:39
    
Any update with this please? –  Arthor Feb 18 '12 at 3:47

Another way to add the move to another folder option is to right click the button in the ribbon and, "Add to Quick Access Toolbar". As a note, I did this, but then you can't use the first letter of the folder to "jump".

The solution for this (which I discovered with the help of this article) is to add the "Other Folders" (a sub menu of "move") option to the quick access toolbar instead. I have it as the first item, so now I press alt+1 and then the first letter of the folder.
