    Here's an easy way to display Store Folder in Outlook Express with just a few clicks and keystrokes.

    In Outlook Express, click Options on the Tools menu. Click the Maintenance tab. Click the Store folder button. Press the TAB key to highlight the Store Folder path. Press CTRL+C to copy the path to the clipboard. Click OK, then again OK to close the Options panel.

    Click Start, and then click Run. Press CTRL+V to paste the path into the command line. Click OK.

    If you do not see any files in the folder that opens, click Folder Options on the Tools menu, click the View tab, and then click "Show hidden files and folders" and click OK.
