My coworker accidentally unchecked "Try the beta" and now she can't get it ack
My coworker and I accessed the Outlook beta via the direct URL, but she accidentally unchecked "Try the beta". Now when she tries to re-access the beta via URL, it will flash the beta theme, then go back to the old theme. This is noted in a few blog posts, including on the Verge: "Don’t untick the “try the beta” toggle though, as this will permanently remove you from the beta interface, even with this workaround."
Is there anyway to get this back?
We have fixed this issue, if you use the direct URL, it adds the switcher to your regular Outlook.com screen even if you have turned it off in the past. Use https://outlook.live.com/mail/ to add the switcher to your account.
Please put the beta toggle back. I do not like this new outlook and want the old format. Give the option back. I hate it when Outlook makes changes without my permission! Maybe time to switch to gmail for good.
BYE BYE BETA!!!
sign in and press ALT D use this link works 100%
Where do I find more info on this "Beta" thing before I click on it?
I got this problem too.
Tried on IE11, chrome 66, Firefox59, /60, opera 52, no "Try the beta" re-appear.
Tried https://outlook.live.com/mail/ , https://outlook.live.com/owa/, no "Try the beta" re-appear.
In the beta version, my "forwarding" and other pages is just blank.
I liked outlook. Hope this can fixed soon.
No it doesn't

Same issue here using a corporate Office365 account so the Outlook.live.com links don't work for me. Any help would be greatly appreciated as I would like to check this out before it's unleashed on our users.
I also use a corporate outlook.office.com account and the fix suggested here does not work for me (it loads my private outlook.com account instead). Help!
I use corporate o365 account, and still suffer from this issue.

I was affected by this problem but fortunately today the toggle reappeared on my account!
I also have the same problem, how can I get it back ???

I'm not sure what the admin's response means... will it come back? I Turned it on, then turned it off to compare... I like the layout of the beta much better and want to use it, cant find the setting anywhere.
Beta was awesome, please bring it back!!! It was as a gulp of the fresh air after bulky and clumsy old interface!
Yeah its not much of a toggle, more of a nuke. :(
good sentiment poor execution whoever UX designed that...

The Beta Version went away when I switched to calendar view and the toggle button to restarted it is no longer there. Help!
Last night, I got new Outlook.com beta in my account. I was able to switch the system between old system and beta system.
But this morning, back in the original system again.
Since that, I cannot access new Outlook.com beta.

I want to turn the beta back on! I really liked it, but I accidentally hit the toggle button a second time after using it for a while, I was thanked for using the beta and it switched me back to the old view. PLEASE let me turn the beta back on. The interface is so much nicer to use.
