  1. FOLDER to Sub-Folder problem

    I recently closed an Outlook Support call. However there is still a problem.

    My question/problem/issue now is how do I prevent accidentally moving a FOLDER to a Sub-Folder, This is a continuing problem
    for my Hotmail Outlook account. This has happened before AND IT WILL HAPPEN AGAIN.

    You may close the support issue 523763 because you have provided detailed instructions (work-around).

    Suggestion/Idea: If the above move is about to happen, accidentally, have a pop-up message appear to ask, "Are you sure you want to move this to Sub-Folder status"

  3. Tasks on the same screen as email, like the desktop version.

    Option to display tasks on the same screen as the email. This way you can see tasks at a glance rather than opening another window.

  8. Grouping sender's email

    I have a lot of email. I used to delete my emails in a group with a right click of the mouse on the Sender (find email) and then they would all pop up with the older version of Outlook (this is called a search). Now that I have to put my search in the searchbox on the top of the page it doesn't work as well !! Before only those emails would pop up. Now with the search box I get other emails that pop up from different senders that I DON'T want coming up !! It worked MUCH…

  12. The new "suggested contacts" is not helpful any more. It save

    The new "suggested contacts" is not helpful any more. It saves junk mail names and misspelled names and I can not right click to delete them. Please put back the old better "suggested contacts" feature with remove with right click on the x. Thank you

  13. Microsoft to-do is extremely slow

    Gears are rotating forever. All ideas in my mind have gone. In my environment (win 7 or 10, firefox), Microsoft to-do starts slow (5 to 10 sec.). Recently it does not work at all. I'm considering to use the other task manager.

  14. BAD CHANGE to sweep, save last one in rules and delete all

    from the top bar, I used to be able to pull down a menu to sweep, or create a rule. That was so much easier and quick to do than now, when I have looked and cannot figure out how to do that anymore! options now are more clicks, harder to find and figure and I dont see WHERE/IF I can still just save the last one in, etc, as we used to be able to do.
    Or be able to right clicj=k and do it.

  15. Update makes this useless as a primary email for me

    I don't want to select "everything in this folder" I want to select a day, or week, or month. This change makes it impossible to mass delete only recent emails, making this useless. I'm going to have to change my primary email for the first time in 20 years

  17. 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…

  19. The "Review " tab has disappeared form my outlook programme after the last Microsoft update. How do I get it back?

    Make sure that when you do automatic updates you ensure they do not mess up peoples' systems. This is not the first time. I always have to re-adjust my computer after your updates

  20. Expand "sweep" feature

    Expand the "Sweep" feature to be used with sorting. Sometimes I like to sort by A-Z then use the sweep feature.
