want classic / old version back
old version is good
Thank you for all of the feedback. We really do read all of it and have been making changes to the new Outlook on the Web experience.
I did just want to let you know that while we are working through feedback if there are things you still need in the old experience you can just toggle back to the old one.
Hope it helps

I JUST FIGURED OUT HOW TO SWITCH BACK TO THE OLD VERSION of outlook.com
Just install Google's user agent switcher in Google Chrome, then once it's installed click the extension --> Safari --> Mac Safari 7. Then reload outlook.com and you have the old version back!
Offline mode doesn't work on new outlook on the web... how did this make it to GA?? Guys... need to make a setting in powershell to switch it back globally ASAP. It's broken!
The search box has completely disappeared from my Outlook following a recent software update. A very basic but essential function! Searching for emails has now become painfully long winded. What the **** is going on? After reading other forums I can see that others are having the same problem and there is apparently no way of fixing this!
Toggle back HOW?

Hi David Los,
Please let us know how our users of Office can “toggle back” to the old version of Office (classic or

The new calendar and Directory (LACK of a directory under the People tab???) is maddening. Seriously how can something that took so long to roll out appear to be such a last minute rush job.

New web outlook is very confusing to our users. Please give us the option to go back to the old version.
You guys have got to fix this. This is impacting my productivity. Need to go back to the old version so I can get some work done.
Printing a calendar is microscopic now. This is terrible.
How can we go back to the previous version!

This latest version is the worst. Beyond frustrated. I manage many calendars and this roll out is HORRIBLE. Change it back.

How is it possible that a the Outlook web application can be different for different users in our office? (We only have 5). How is it possible that for some users they can open another mailbox and still see the favourites for that mailbox at the top, but for other users there are no favourites? How is it possible that this then changes DEPENDING ON THE PC WHICH IS BEING USED? How is it possible that it now takes three clicks to allocate a Category to an email, when before it was one click?
Microsoft 365 - for heavens sake get it together. You don't seem to realise that businessea re being run on your platform, and systems are designed around it. If you can't respect that then you won't get my business any more. I had already given up long ago on your Tasks, Calendar and Contacts, (switched to Google which just WORKS) but Ihung on with Mail as we had become used to its foibles and worked with it (for around the same price as GMail). Mail is more difficult to migrate.
However this latest incomprehensible fiasco is the final straw. We will find another email platform which cares enough about its customers to be sensible with its changes, and at least release them when they have been tested.
What an absolute joke Microsoft is.

How can I change back to the old colors for the calendar. The "Bold Colors" are hideous and give me a headache just trying to read everything. I just want the old view back with the old pastels and the highlighted bars for the multi day events! I'm all for having additional color options, but not making everything insanely bold and bright!
Jeff Newsom commented
Can't stand the new calendar view. How do I get it back to the old version? the new version is VERY difficult to read?
How do I toggle back?
I guess its time to move all my customers back to Google. Have had nothing but tickets with people complaining about the new owa you forced on them. Explaining to them that its not my decision dose not good as I was the one who brought them to office365...

How does one toggle back to the previous version?
Nooooo.... I really want the old calendar view back. Is this still possible?!! I'm an Executive assistant and working with calendars is 40% of my job. The new view is a nightmare!
I accidentally change to new outlook. I want to switch back old outlook but there dont have the toggle for me to change back. FYI, i am using the Web based log in instead of the apps.
how to you toggle back to the old one then?
I've got one browser with the "new" UI and two with the old. How can I swap the "new" one back to the old? It's much more readable/accessible and compact. Whoever decided on making menu colours paler and bolding sender names doesn't know how to do UI design for the masses.
At least give us a way to decide which layout we want rather than force-feeding us something that's not fit for purpose.
