  1. Keyboard shortcuts not working

    I'm trying the new open beta. In this preview, the keyboard shortcuts are not working. Even tried with different kb-shortcuts like Outlook.com, Gmail, ... It is set to Outlook (not Outlook.com) by default. The shortcuts were working in the old layout. Please fix ASAP.

  2. There needs to be an option to delete/clear search history!

    There is no way to delete/clear search history in Outlook.com!!!!!! This is crazy! This is a basic necessity!

    Thank you for all of the great feedback, and for using outlook.com! I just wanted to let you know that everyone should be able to clear their search history now.

    To do this follow these steps

    1) Click the Gear/Cog in the top right hand corner
    2) Click Full Settings at the bottom of the Quick Setting Pane
    3) Select General in the left
    4) Select Export

    From here you can delete your search history, export it if you want a copy, or request an export of your mailbox.

    Hope this helps!

  3. Hard to tell between read and unread messages

    I liked some of the ideas being used in beta, but I hate the new layout! I found it far less readable. It was more difficult to differentiate between read and unread messages quickly. I'd love the option to change the layout to what I prefer. It was enough to make me opt out.

    It is my greatest pleasure to share this piece of news with you: Dark Mode is here, on the new Outlook.com!

    What is Dark Mode?
    Dark Mode is a more-pleasant way to read your Outlook.com email if you prefer interfaces that are less bright or if you are in a low-light environment. Dark Mode is available on the new Outlook.com experience (formerly known as the Outlook.com Beta experience) only.

    How do I turn it on?
    To turn on Dark Mode, open the Quick Settings panel by selecting the Gear icon at the top of your screen. The option to enable Dark Mode is near the top of the panel, immediately under Theme selection. If your browser is unable to support Dark Mode, consider using Microsoft Edge.

    Why is Dark Mode not a theme?
    When we designed Dark Mode, we debated having it exist in Outlook.com as a theme. We quickly…
