How can we improve your Desktop Outlook 2016 experience?

Keep print preview in the foreground when printing

When you use File > Print to print items, the print preview window may shift to the background, This causes confusion because users may not realize the print preview window is still there in the background.

To workaround this issue you can minimize the main Outlook window to bring the print preview dialog back to the foreground. The request is for Outlook and Windows to make a change to always keep the print preview in the foreground when printing.

    Print Preview is "NOT RESPONDING" in my Outlook Email. This means that I have lost control of my printing. Microsoft Outlook is now like the US Government, it wants to control!
