If you are (still) inclined to use Microsoft Outlook then you probably have found the search bar is missing at the top of your inbox. In one of the recent updates it was removed but now it has been resurrected within the options. The instructions below will help get you back to searching through your email for the particular item you are looking for. The search bar will not appear in the top like before, but will now show up as its own SEARCH TAB next to the HOME. The nice part about this is that you now have a very elaborate method of searching with numerous filters you can set up.
Here is what you will need to do:
Follow the below steps to add search in your Outlook.
1. For a start, go to “File” menu and select “Options”.
2. Then locate and click on “Customize Ribbon”.
3. You will see a vast variety of commands, tabs and ribbons listed in dialog boxes.
What you should do is to select “Tools Tabs” in the field of “Choose Commands
from”. At the same time, in the field of “Customize the Ribbon”, you should select
the “Main Tab”.
4. Next locate and pitch on “Search” in the left side. Later click the “Add” button in
5. Finally click “OK’ to save the customization.
After completing the above steps, you can return to the “Home” page, you could see the “Search” tab in the ribbon. Click the “Search” tab, and you will see all kinds of search options. For instance, if you want to search the messages that you sent to specific recipient, you could click the “To” icon. Then a command – “to:(Recipient Name)” will arise in the search field. You can just type the specific name, replacing “Recipient Name”. After press “Enter”, all specific messages will appear immediately.
