Thank you so much for the quick short-cut keys. I'm using Office 365 and couldn't find the setting to get the Favorites folder to display. The CTRL+1 worked like a charm.

Many thanks. Your answer was straight to the point. I've been looking for a solution for over and hour. You, my dear, are a jewel. Searching is getting to be a chore, as too many sites come up that have nothing to do with the search. Blessings.
