Office 365 (Outlook 2016 for Windows) - How to turn on Focused Inbox

This article includes some instructions on how to toggle Focused Inbox on/off in Outlook 2016 for Windows and how to sort your emails into the Focused Inbox.

Focused Inbox helps you focus on the emails that matter most to you. It separates your Inbox into two tabs: Focused and Other. Your most important emails are on the Focused tab while the rest remain easily accessible (but out of the way) on the Other tab. You'll be informed about email flowing to other, and you can switch between tabs at any time to take a quick look.
