You can show your search bar by right clicking your top bar (just at the text "Inbox") and select to show symbols, then also the search bar will appear.


(don't mind I'm using a swedish version of Outlook)

After the above steps answered by jtheman, the below screen will be appearing.

After appearing the “Search” tab, click on it and just below of the tab all items will display as: folder, sub-folder, All Mail, All Items, Subjects,From, Attachments, Send To etc. accordingly you can select any of your required items from the list.
