    Problem with Outlook account profiles in left navigation pane


    I'm really hoping there's an Outlook expert on here since I didn't get too far with this question on the Microsoft support page. I just upgraded from Windows 7 (with Office 2010) to Windows 10 (with Office 2019) while also upgrading my computer with a new SSD. I have an online email account with GMX.COM and use two different email addresses with this email provider. I have them both connected to Outlook 2019 (like I had with Outlook 2010) via POP3. Before I upgraded everything, I saved the .pst files from Outlook 2010 for both email addresses. With Outlook 2019, I did the POP3 connection and had two email addresses set up in my left side navigation pane, just like before. Then I imported the .pst files from one email address name which for some reason ended up being imported into the other name. No big deal, I just moved those folders into and under the other proper email address name. (this email address has fewer folders). Then I imported the .pst files into the other email name (with more folders), but I think I must have not checked the appropriate boxes to make sure the folders were not duplicated because the folders did in fact get duplicated. So now I had duplicate junk folders, sent folders, deleted folders, inbox folders, etc.,... all under the same email address name. It also created a duplicate of the same primary email address account visible on the left navigation pane. I tried to delete this email address, but couldn't because the option to remove/delete is greyed out. I then deleted the account file under account settings, which prevented me from opening Outlook. So I restored the file, but this somehow produced a third duplicate primary account name in the left navigation pane. Aarrrgh!! So I went into the profile listings and deleted two of the three email address accounts that were the same. This cleared up the issue of duplicate email addresses in the left side navigation pane. But now, within that email address, I still have duplicate individual folders. Is there anything I can do at this point to get rid of the duplicate folders? Or is it possible to start over from scratch setting up my Outlook 2019 account again and re-importing the .pst files? Thanks.

    :)

  3. Hide or Show User Profile's Personal Folders in Navigation Pane

    Hello Brink and thank you. This website is a very helpful resource. Problem with Outlook account profiles in left navigation pane :)

    Your suggested answer will hide the User Profile folder in the Navigation Pane.

    Instead, this scenario involves not hiding the User Profile folder but hiding specific Personal Folders in the Navigation Pane that are marked "Hidden" in the Files/Folders Listing Area.

    My suspicion is that there are more "PinToNamespace" registry entries for me to toggle the DWORD value.

    OneDrive missing from Windows Explorer navigation pane

    When I first cleaned installed Windows 10 v1809 on my machine I applied a Group Policy setting for OneDrive to Prevent the Usage of OneDrive for File Storage to ENABLED. Of course, that would remove the OneDrive from the left side navigation pane within Windows File Explorer. But now, I set the Group Policy back to NOT CONFIGURED, rebooted the machine and the OneDrive is still missing from the the left side of the Windows File Explorer navigation pane as shown in my image. I even performed the command GPUPDATE /FORCE.

    My laptop is a standalone, not part of a Domain.

    I tried all the things listed from the article below but with no luck. I also was able to sign in with my OneDrive account and that was all fine and OneDrive appeared on the File Explorer pane. But once I UNLINKED my account from OneDrive, the OneDrive was still missing.

    https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/...8-b74545c7f4da

    Even if no Group Policies are set, and even NOT signing into OneDrive, by default, the OneDrive icon should still appear on the left side navigation pane when launching Windows File Explorer.

    And suggestions?

    My guess is to recreate my user profile, but I don't really want to do that now.
