  2. setting to open calendar, people, etc. in new tab or same tab !

    The icons on the bottom left for mail, calendar, people, etc. keep being switched between opening in a new tab & opening in the same tab. Could you please just put a setting in the menu so users can pick what they want

  5. Misleading Uservoice website URLs

    The only working uservoice link is displayed at: https://support.office.com/en-us/article/how-to-get-outlook-com-support-f5482a98-616c-4d44-b7c5-8aaaadf5c11a where there is this link: https://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=866961 that goes to forums/284136...
    If you simply go to outlook.uservoice.com this forum is not listed at all, and the link for outlook.com goes to a LOCKED forum at https://outlook.uservoice.com/forums/601444--the-new-outlook-com
    This is confusing. Which one is which? Why do you have multiple ones? Even your own support people don't know the difference, how should average users be able to use any of these then?
    And since many issues here were ignored with a generic answer from a bot, let this be a feature request: have only…

  6. Please make the iOS app capable with older versions of iOS I'm on 10.2.1 and it no longer works.

    The app no longer loads and asks me to update and takes me to the App Store. App Store says no update available. I tried downloading the app again and says it only works on newer iOS updates. Not happy as I like the update I'm on. And do not want my phone to slow down. Which has been proven. Thanks

  7. Fix "back button" use/action

    When reading an email on outlook.com, let the back button take you back to the inbox/last folder rather than back to the webpage you visited BEFORE going to Outlook.com

  10. Login accesss

    My idea is not to have to enter the name of the provider, Outlook.com or Hotmail.com, if you are already on their page, it would be more practical to just enter the login name of the user.

  14. Dutch version, some untranslated texts

    The Dutch version still contains some untranslated texts:
    Reply to a mail message.
    Use the button with the three dots.
    It says 'Hide from' in this menu, should be translated with 'Verbergen voor' or so.
    If you click 'Urgentie instellen'(Urgency), there are three options. One is 'High' which is untranslated, should be 'Hoog'.

    Also, if you click on your account picture, the secont option is 'View account'. This could be translated as 'Profiel bekijken' or 'Bekijken'.

  15. If hotmail block attachment and allow only from onedrive, so long I MOVE & activate GOOGLE account. I have a right not to use onedrive

    Hotmail is forcing account holders to use onedrive. Otherwise you can NOT attach files from your phone and send via email. That is abuse of customers. Continue giving me hard time, am moving to Google. Thanks God there is better alternative. Fix your file attachment new policy
