Is there any way to change the target folder for "one click archive" in Outlook or OWA?
Some time ago there was one way in files -> tools menu, but that point seems not to exist any more.
By now you can neither change the folder nor rename it.
I startet archiving in "year"-folders. Because of not beeing able to change the folder that functions is useless.

"The Archive folder is one of Outlook's default folders, like Inbox, Sent Items, and the Deleted Items folder." See https://support.office.com/en-us/article/archive-in-outlook-2016-for-windows-25f75777-3cdc-4c77-9783...
You can't delete it, you can't rename it and you can't choose to archive (using the Archive button) in another folder.
Hope it helps...

My answer comes a bit late, but yes, this can be done.
Go to file, then under the "Account information" settings, click on Mailbox Settings (Tools icon) and Set Archive Folder.

I was happy to see your post!
I like this post because it tells me where the setting should be.
However, when I click on the Tools icon for Mailbox Settings, I see only the first two of the four options that are displayed in your screenshot.
Oh, well. Perhaps I just cannot configure the target-folder after all....

It is possible to rename these default folders to their default names. To do this you have to go to Outlook Online and change the email language setting to some other ie. spanish. Then reload the page, logout. Login using private window then change the language back to your preferred language and tick the box below asking if the default folders should be renamed too to match the language. Now the folders are named to default value. In my case somebody had renamed this archive folder and moved into other folder. The name was correct after these steps but I couldn't move the Archive folder in the top mailbox folder which is very disappointing.
