Favorites panel entries move around after restarting Outlook 2016

Not open for further replies.


Outlook version
Outlook 2010 64 bit
Email Account
Outlook.com (as MS Exchange)

For a while now, I've had a curious problem.

Background: running Outlook 2016 on Win 10, fully updated, with Office subscription.

Outlook 2016 has several accounts set up, with 3 main accounts: Home Outlook.com email, Work A Gmail and Work B Gmail.

In my Favorites panel, I have added:
Inbox Home Email
Sent Items Home email
Inbox Work A Gmail
Sent Items Work A Gmail
Inbox Work B Gmail
Sent Items Work B Gmail

After EVERY restart of Outlook 2016, the order changes randomly. It takes 5 secs to arrange them in the correct order again but it would be nice if the order would just stick.

I tried setting up a fresh profile, but it keeps happening.

Any ideas on how to fix this would be very welcome.
