New Links on Navigation Pane, How to Remove?

Not open for further replies.


Outlook version
Email Account
I have Outlook 2003. Since my pst size reached over 1.5 GB, I decided to switch from an ANSI format pst (2GB size restriction) to UNICODE (far larger capacity).

That actually went smoothly. But early in the process I was reading an article regarding pst-type migration, and it suggested that hitting CTRL+6 could make things easier. When I did so nothing changed other than the blank space at the bottom of my navigation pane being replaced by a blue line followed by links to Folder Sizes and Data File Management. See screenshot of the bottom part of my navigation pane.

Any idea why this change occurred, and how I can get rid of the line and the two links that appeared? Fortunately it's a very minor issue, but I'm curious. Thanks.

Found the answer...trivially simple. I just click on the mail view (envelope) at the bottom of the navigation pane, and the new elements that appeared at the bottom go away. I notice that this also made the calendar icon disappear -- irretrievably, apparently -- from the folder list in the navigation pane. No matter, I don't need it there...and frankly I don't recall it being there to begin with
