  1. 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.

  3. automatic replies don't work

    In the prior version of Outlook.com, Automatic Replies worked like a charm. Now it doesn't work no matter how many times I set it up. I test it each time with another email address and it works fine. Then an hour or two later it doesn't work at all and has been disengaged even though I set no timeframe for Automatic replies to turn off. It just turns off itself. Its useless.

  4. Password creation rules

    Why can't you allow users to pick their own password?? It is ridiculous to put so many rules on password creation. Why can't i use a password I have previously used??

  7. Inbox Advertisements

    The advertisement at the top of your inbox is extremely annoying. It is designed to look exactly like one of your emails and I always click it on accident. I don't think ads should be placed in this way. So far I have given it a chance without ad blockers, but this is exactly why people use ad blockers. Please do not place them in annoying deceiving places. I have no problem with advertisements to the side of the inbox.

  8. New log in page layer

    New Log in page: Why the change with an image of a young white woman? The older, simple version with only graphics was fine. If you insist on adding another layer for accessing the log in page, at least use a photo of a group of mixed-age and mixed-race people. Only young white women do not use MSN.

  18. app launcher

    Yesterday my Outlook.com App launcher changed. That is the 9 dots in the upper left of the screen on your inbox page.
    It worked just fine in fact it was well thought out and such easy access to your apps. The apps were all shown in a tile layout.
    Now? I see 7 apps and two of these I never use, with 3 others seldom used. I have to hit "all apps" to get to the ones that I actually use.
    I am unable to remove, pin or add new apps on the fist app list to make it more…
