Display Modes for Density or Compact
isn't it possible to have more compact view? menus are taking lots of space in screen and way too annoying.
I again thank each and everyone of you for using Outlook.com and for providing all of your feedback. I wanted to let you know that as of today we have enabled Density settings. There are three modes which control how tight and how much information is shown on the screen.
To change the density settings click on the gear in the top right (settings). In the pane that opened you should see three setting Full, Medium and Compact.
Hope this helps address some of the concerns around white space :)
New format is awful! we do not need graphic enhancements that use up our computers memory ram. How do I go back to classic. (classic = professional looking, not childish). also deleting mass emails on new format sucks. I see you have to hover over with mouse to select, but what if I am using my finger on tablet or touch screen. bring back old!!! if not broke don't fix.
your new layout is rubbish
Hate ... repeat .... hate the new layout.
Confusing, A Gmail wantabe.
You can not delete a screenful of emails at a time, its either all, or do it one at a time.
Give us the option back to choose.
Previous make the previous version available. I am not a fan of this change.
Why can't we keep the old layout. I hate this layout. I'm missing email because of this new format. It is not easy on the eyes. Why can't be have an option instead of forced into something nobody wants.
Hate the new setting. Trouble sending letters. Will reload deleted junk after I delete twice. HATE HATE HATE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The page format is kindergarten style. I spend too much time on this slow format and hate the fact you changed it without consult.
The new UI is very slow to load at times and has issues while loading emails and attachments,
i have tried it on different browsers, different computers, all on high speed internet, but the performance is still choppy.

Really this new layout is not working. Too confusing. I cannot even find the spam mails. And you have to consider older peple get used to a more simple procedures, appearance and functions. Those new made for young people are a disaster for us. You should keep both formats and give people the right to chose which to use.

o novo layout é ruim de aparencia e de utilização. Por exemplo nao acho a pasta de spam. Tudo é muito confuso. pessoas mais velhas como eu tem um habito e não gostam de mudanças radicais para jovens.
why change something that worked the new layout is really bad and i miss so much the old one and consider changing strongly to another provider as this has become too difficult
I can't stand when something is unilaterally implemented against my wishes or without my consultation...why change what was working ?
I hate this new 'slow' and noncompelling look within my inbox? why do you continually do this miscrosoft?
I don't need your help with my day to day affairs within time and office management. if I did-I would have asked for the changes
I can't even email my wife now ? for some reason her contact info is missing ? I can't seem to search for past emails ? wtf
your making me less efficient- not more... are you intentionally driving me away from the platform?
can anyone help me? I want to go back to what I had just 2 days ago!!!!!!! this new platform is not what I want and seem to be stuck in it ?
I complained with the last (unwanted) "update" that I couldn't check & delete ONLY a screen's worth of junk mail at a time like before. If you click at the top of the list, it is again selecting ALL the emails, if you have 50, or 200, or 700! This is NOT user friendly! I like to skim through the page for email that shouldn't be in the junk folder. And yes, the added spacing is wasteful for how many emails can be seen per view page. And I don't know how to post this comment - asks for my password but i can't type it in , in the box! Cripes!

I agree.....give us a choice. I like the old, less confusing layout much better....PLEASE!!
How do I contact Outlook to get my old format back. This new one is ridiculous!!
I have been using hot mail from beginning.The new presentation is terrible to use.Please revert back to old or give option.Some mails are opening in new page popping out.Please do something at the earliest since hot-mail being first one I am finding very difficult
QUIT CHANGING THINGS !

CHANGE IT BACK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
WHAT AN ABSOLUTE DISASTER OF A DESIGN, CHANGE IT BACK PLEASE ASAP!

There is too much space for each line. Having some pinned items, I no longer can even see the most current email on the screen. The spacing on the old layout was superior.
