In Outlook When I already have a search query that is displaying results on screen in the email list pane, how do I save this EXISTING search query as a "Search Folder".

i.e. Without starting again from "New Search Folder" menu item.

I'm expecting to find a button like "Save this EXISTING search query as a Search Folder".


Firstly, create the folder in your Outlook, then do a search query. Select one message in the result output, hold it and type Ctrl+A. Right-click and move them to the new created folder.

  • "Search Folders" are dynamic virtual folders that display the results of a search query. Manually moving emails to real normal folder does not relate to "Search Folders". support.office.com/en-us/article/… – LaVache Aug 20 '19 at 13:12
  • There is not a such bottom in Outlook client, except creating a customized search folder. – Kelvin_D Aug 22 '19 at 6:34
