I have Outlook 2016 & Windows 10 Pro. When I click on my archived tasks folder, it doesn't show anything (nothing is due). When I click in the search box, it doesn't find any tasks that have been archived. How can I search my archive.pst for past tasks?
Thank you in advance.

Thanks for the reply. Yes, I tried "All task items". I just tried "All Outlook items" & it worked this time. It also gives me results in Contacts & current tasks. Is there a reason that it won't work for either All Task Items or Current Folder?

I can't think of any reason who it would not work for all tasks - except there are search bugs that come and go that affect the search scopes.

Click the magnifying glass in the top bar, or use the shortcut ⌘ Ctrl + ⇧ + K to access the search function. You can do this while you're in a project as well as from the dashboard. In the search dialog, click Scope and select Archived Tasks from the drop-down menu.
Hope this helps you!
Regards,
Lewis
