  • Hi BENSMIR,

    The related setting is stored in Registry. If you want to show Favorite in Folder Pane, we can set HideMailFavorites to 0.

    Please open Registry Editor and locate this path: Computer\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\16.0\Outlook\Preferences

    (Important Follow the steps in this section carefully. Serious problems might occur if you modify the registry incorrectly. Before you modify it, back up the registry for restoration in case problems occur.

    You can deploy this key to all users.

    After setting this, users can still turn off Favorite by themselves.

    If you want to force users to always have Favorite showing in Folder Pane, we can add HideMailFavorites under Policy key:

    Computer\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Office\16.0\Outlook\Preferences

    In this way, although users can turn off Favorite, it will still come back when they restart Outlook.

    Hope the information is helpful to you.

    Regards,

    Perry
