  1. Bring back the previous method of spellcheck. I hate that dropdown box with every other unneeded choices.

    Just bring back the previous method of spellcheck. I spell a word incorrectly, I right click over it, spelling choices drop down. I click on the correct spelling and the word is corrected. That function seems to no longer be available!

  2. Task and To-Do is losing formatting.

    Ever since To-Do has become a feature of Tasks, I noticed a few things happening to my task. Ever since 2019, I noticed that a newly created task will lose formatting such as bullets, bold, italics, strike-through and color. I will save it. It seems to store in my local cache of Outlook just fine for the day. Once I close Outlook and open it again the next day, the formatting is changed or lost completely.

    My order tasks before 2019 does not seems to do this. I wonder if it has to do with the new To-Do app which…

  3. Tasks with day of the week in view

    It is very disappointing you can not see days of the week in the task bar when you set it up as a task. The today, this week and next week just adds all your tasks to a specific day. This would be especially helpful to see a task on Wednesday that is due when it is Monday, not just all placed in this week. This was a feature on previous versions and not on the newest.

  6. One Drive

    I HATE this addition. I keep all my files neatly catagorized in my own way and having it all mixed up now with One Drive is a catastrophe. Some things don't show up if they got hijacked by OD and my personal templates keep getting changed to fit OD parameters. This is particularly acute with my word files. When they go to OD they are basically lost to me since I can never find them again. I do not want my documents etc. to be stored in any cloud or "alternate" location. They should say "Compatability Mode. Saved to this…

  12. Blocking selected senders

    Without opening any questionable messages, the "Block" feature previously available in the "Junk email" folder was good in that it displayed the email address ID for the selected message(s) before giving the option to confirm the "Block" request. This helpful option does no appear to be available any longer.

  13. Change in log off

    You have changed the way we log off, without giving instructions. It sure is not intuitive! We used to click on our icon in upper right and see a drop down menu which included "log off". Help!

  17. Easyfix

    MS EasyFix now contains TWO unrelated functions, the one replacing the old repair.pst and the one for fixing Outlook.pst problems. Please SEPARATE these functions since there is no reason for them to be associated with one another. It's very annoying to have to watch the FIX function work when trying to repair outlook.pst.

  19. Copying and pasting a spreadsheet

    Why can I no longer paste a spreadsheet I have copied from Microsoft Works to an email I want to send? I have done this for years without any problems. Approximately Nov.1 changes to Outlook make this no longer possible! Since i need to send these spreadsheets frequently I am very frustrated. I do not like having to add them as attachments, which is more work for me and the recipient. Also if I use a different account such a g-mail I can paste the spreadsheet without any problems. Is there any solution to this other than switching to another…
