    This is not really what was asked for. In the RESULTS, how can I know what folder, particularly when multiple folders are included in the search?

    In Office Professional Plus 2013, when your search results are in the compact view, if you hover over a message there is a tooltip that pops up that lists the name of the folder containing the message. This won't help if you have multiple folders with the same name, but for me that is usually all I need.

    You must -Double click the e-mail you want and fully open in the reading pane
    Now and only now press Ctrl+Shift and F
    Advance find opens as above 3 - In the popping up Advanced Find dialog box, please click Browse button.
    Then as above 4 - After clicking Browse button in the Advanced Find dialog box, a Select Folder(s) dialog box will pop up. In this dialog, you can see the specific folder of your selected email which is locating at has been checked with a mark.

    Here is one way of doing it. After looking at numerous forums to find the answer (and none of them have it), I ended up finding the answer the old fashion way (pre-google era), trial and error!

    In Outlook 2016,
    1. In the search result pane, right click on the column header (any column).
    2. In context sensitive drop down, select 'View Settings'.
    3. Select 'Columns...' button from the pop up window 'Advanced View Settings: Compact'.
    4. The next popup window is titled 'Show Columns', Under the drop down menu, select 'All Post fields'.
    5. From the left side column list, select 'In Folder' and click on 'Add ->' button.
    6. This will add 'In Folder' column in the list on the right hand side.

    7. All you do now is click on couple of 'OK' buttons and you are set.

    This won't show you the full path but the sub folder your email is stored in.
