I have created a public contact folder for the whole organization. However; the boss does not want to travel all the way down to the public folders to find theĀ  Business Contact folder. How can I create a shortcut on the toolbar to open this folder.

Any hints or help are greatly appreciated.

Start Outlook, resize this window so that can see on desktop. In public folder List pane or on the Outlook Shortcut Bar, right-click the Outlook folder for which want to create a shortcut, and then drag the folder to desktop.
Remember, If u do not see List pane, click folder list on View menu. On next DB, select any one as ur wish….
* Copy Here
* Move Here
* Create Active Desktop shortcut here
OR, Drag the folder to the Public Folder Favorites folder and it will then appear when choose the Contacts view.

    Another quick way he can do is right-click the contact public folder and choose "add to favorites". Then when he clicks the contacts icon on the bottom left in Outlook the public folder contacts will show there.
