Where is Journal?

Fewer and fewer people have been using Journal, so we moved it out of the way in Outlook 2013 and Outlook 2016. Here’s where to find it if you’re a Journal fan.

  1. On the Navigation Bar, click Navigation Bar ellipses > Folders > Journal. (Or just press Ctrl+8.)

    to view the folder in the navigation bar

  2. You can work with your existing Journal entries or create new ones from the Folder pane.
