Hello. When I got my new HP Windows 7 laptop several months ago I installed Office 2013. I recall at the time importing more than one personal folder into the new Outlook. Enough time has passed that I'm ready to get rid, if I can, of the annoyance having folders I don't use in the folder list on the left. Maybe I should be using them but I don't.



From the top: first I have personal folder with subfolders inbox, drafts, sent, etc.As far as I know I don't use these folders at all and I have cut and moved most of the messages in them to the second folder list.



The second list is name@email.com. There I also have subfolders inbox, drafts, sent, deleted as well as the many other subfolders I've created for various needs.



So, can I get rid of the personal folders listed first? Should I keep them? If so, can I hide them somehow?



Thanks.

You'll want to keep the default folders like inbox, sent, delete, etc. that Outlook uses.

Any folders and subfolders that you created and you no longer need can be safely deleted.
