Default Moving messages to folders by typing folder name


I've just switched to Outlook 2016 on Win10 from Mac.

On the Mac, shift-command-M displays a 'move message to folder' dialogue box. Typing the first letters of the desired target folder will show all applicable folders and paths within Outlook, anywhere in the folder tree.

On Windows, ctrl-shift-V displays a list of folders in the Move Items window, but typing the first letters of the desired folder name only among currently expanded folders.

This is highly annoying as there is no quick way to expand the entire folder tree in the "Move Items" dialogue box, and my workflow depends on being able to quickly move mails manually. I have hundreds of folders, often deeply nested.

There also seems to be no relationship between whether a folder is expanded in the Folder view pane and in the "Move Items" popup window.

Any ideas on how to quickly find and select folders to move mails to by typing the folder name?

Thank you.
