  2. Make Dark Mode work with other Themes

    The outlook.com dark mode is great start. Please make the Outlook.com Dark Mode even darker! Remove the blue title bar and all blue from the Dark Mode (at least give us the option). Blue light is bad for the eyes!

    It appears the black theme is disabled for dark mode. We need a total blackout mode.

  3. Help Function is NON-Functioning

    The "?"/help function is not functioning at all. If you put in a word to search nothing happens. Now there is no way (or you buried it so people wont bother you) to email or call for help? Are you just trying to make people leave?!

  4. Scroll bar design limits accessibility

    Scroll bars are far too narrow, and making the bar mostly invisible makes it incredibly difficult for people with limited eyesight to see, and the tiny size can make it awkward to select.

  6. Delete button moves when selecting emails

    When selecting an email via the check box, the "Delete" button moves and it's location is then occupied by the "Archive" button.
    The half second delay on this movement means I already have the mouse button over "delete", but as I click it moves and I end up archiving instead.

  9. Disaster

    The ads on the right are a nuisance. It is too cramped and complicated is right! And very difficult to find the thread of my email messages. Also attachments are hard to find. In short a true disaster. Take me back to the old outlook please. Help!

  16. Can't scroll with arrows in text

    Can't scroll with arrows through the e-mail itself. Don't like scrolling with mouse, because using arrow keys is much better foar muscles in wrist in arm.

    New updated Outlook is very confusing and difficult to use or navigate. Forwarding emails attaches them to messages and they are unable to be retrieved.
    When writing new emails, they don't appear across the page for easy viewing prior to sending,
    Not as easy to find or view emails.
    Not necessary to have "focused" and "other" viewing folders. It is confusing.
    Your previous version was much more user friendly and much easier to navigate. Not happy with this update at all.

  20. turn off new features by default and allow users to turn on/off with a switch

    I have spent 20 years being frustrated by hotmail (outlook). Every time MS adds a new feature they break something I used to use or the new feature is just annoying. I then spend ages trying to figure out how to use it again, contacting support, have to post a request to fix on a forum (?!?!?) etc- it is massively disrespectful of my time as a user who just wants to use email (without being part of a continual beta test program) to have this disruption all the time.

    Instead of just turning on a new feature, please, please,…
