New search bar, please put it back....
The new search bar in the April 2020 release of Outlook for Microsoft 365 has been moved to the very top of the window and with that also made smaller.
The new interface location makes it
Harder to get to with mouse. More unnecessary mouse drag...
Smaller to get to and 'hit'
It's a regression in design and I kept giving negative feedback through preview builds so I am surprised others did not do the same (I rarely give negative feedback)
Hope you can come up with something...
Agree 100%. Dumb change and decreases functionality and ease of use. Microsoft over the past few years has gone backwards in terms of ease of use.
The problem is not that it's hard to get there with the mouse. If you want close an application you also have to go to top of the windows. I could live with that, although the previous location of the search box was much better/logical.
The real problem (at least on my 27 inch monitor) is that you have to look upwards while using the keyboard (input of a search item).
