favourite star is annoying
The favourite star that appears when mouse hovers over each folder is annoying. I am here to be productive, not to decide which folder to favourite (it changes over time, so... no point changing favourite folders now and then later... microsoft please dont make features that make us unproductive and be slaves to user testing your product). Another option is to let us have option to hide all folders (junk, draft, sent), and then we choose which folders to appear... not selectively tell us which we can customize............
Sometimes I think developers do not use the products...
I have been resisting to move from 2011 to 365.
- Those stars are really annoying!
- Please put again the folders in bold when there are unread messages inside;
- Please use less thin font;
- Please allow personalised schedules.
You guys actually listened, thank you for moving this annoying Favorites Star!

Get rid of that new box appearing at the bottom of the emails.
And get rid of those stupid STARS, I want to see the numbers not Stars.

Favorite folders is a good feature and I really like it, but the toggle is way too easier than necessary. I'm tired of un-favoriting folders by accident so many times. Demoting the interface a little bit will actually increase productivity!

Dear Microsoft, is there any hope this favorite star will go away or be optional?
I hate this star please remove it from my computer.

starred favorites is the most annoying "feature" you have come up with. Outlook is becoming GARBAGE
I just want to deal with my messages, it's so annoying chasing that infuriating star around as if it's a video game. The increased line spacing of the folders list now additionally means frequently scrolling it for new messages, so the dancing star is unavoidable. It was perfectly alright before, so why change it?
Can we please change the location or the clickablility of the 'favorit-star' in the left navigation pane (IN box, Trash, etc). I keep clicking it when I mean to click my IN box, etc.
Remove the (star/ favorite) icon!! the missclick´s are unreal...

The star where the number of emails is obnoxious. If you click on it accidentally it removes or adds things to the favorites. Make it STOP

what is the star showing in the folder list next to the folder your hovering over. why would i want to move a folder to favorites? I don't get it. all my folders are my favorites. that's stupid.
Having the favorite 'Star' appear over every folder I hover sucks. As I want to select the folder but the star gets clicked an sets is as a favorite. Stupid feature.

Please move favorites to a different spot, to easy to miss click on it.

New version of Outlook web client, the favorite star that pops up covers the number of emails in the folder and is
Please take the favorite star button off the number of unread emails. Everytime I click to view emails it goes into favorites and I have to move it back. Annoying.
Echoing the sentiments of the others -- the favorite star is more than annoying. It is extremely frustrating when looking to access the Inbox and other folders, only to discover that the star was inadvertently touched by the mouse and it necessary yet again to remove from favorites. All folders I have created were done so for a reason and, thus, all are favorites.
PLEASE provide the option to remove that annoying star!
The Favourites star is too easy to hit by accident. Can this be moved? Or perhaps have a pop-up for people to confirm they do want to actually make or remove a favourite.
The amount of times I end up de-favouring a folder because the star is far too easy to click is astonishing. Put the star to the left side of the folder, and always visible, or remove the start and replace favouriting with an "options" button if people care to do that.
