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.

if my account already had the toggle (office365) how will you know that you have to put the toggle on again if it is missing now? if we all had the toggle option and turned it off. you already added our accounts to the beta and now we can't re-activate. I had to as skype wasn't working .now it's not working in the old view either.

20 seconds into using the Beta it freezes and you have to do a page recover to get it back. This has happened 6 straight times trying it. Let me know when you get it fixed and I will try it again.
I turned on beta. I used it for a while. I then turned it off to compare/contrast. The beta toggle disappeared so now I can't turn it on again... Not very useable now!
When I reload the page, or sign in again after a while, it automatically switches back to non-beta mode

I like to join Outlook.com Beta. Can someone help me with that?

Try using the following link: https://outlook.live.com/mail/
The same thing happened to me. You could at least allow people who access through the direct URL to opt into the beta permanently (even after having disabled the toggle once).
i accidentally unchecked my account from the beta...
how can I add it again?
