Collapse search bar by default like other Office apps
Like the other Office apps Excel, Word, and PowerPoint, they have an option where you can collapse the search bar on the window by default. Apparently Outlook doesn't.

Please move the search bar in Outlook back to where it was. I have had several users that thought they totally lost the Outlook search bar on their laptops. It is not convenient at all where it is now.
Where the Outlook search bar at the top taking up too much space for notebook, laptop ect and is most annoying, if adding the option to collapse is too difficulty for your brilliant Tech Staff, undoing the move and leave it back where it was should not be too difficult.
Please Microsoft, if you are listening user voice, collapse search bar like other office apps eg. word

Even better, move it off the title bar completely. The title bar has a set of defined roles and behavior in both Windows and Mac OS which are broken by the inclusion of the search widget.
