    Hey, thanks for the feedback!

    Is it possible that you’re accessing OWA from a different browser each time you’re signing in? The “Keep Me Signed In” feature will only work if you access from the same browser on the same computer in normal browsing mode.

    If you access in private browsing mode, it will not remember your “Keep Me Signed In” preference.

    Alternatively, if you clear your cookies, it will not remember your sign in preferences.

    Can you give us any more details about what’s going on?

    Colin

    Actually. It's funny. Now up on the top of THIS page (upper right), I see a "Click This Link to Stay Signed In Even After Your Browser Is Closed" - it would be good to have that link available somewhere in the regular Outlook.com view along with a warning icon that you have chosen that setting (otherwise someone unbeknownst could chose it for you when you're briefly away from your desk, etc).

    On my other computers using Chromium-Edge Dev version, I'm never asked to sign-in again to Outlook.com. But I just got a new computer, upgraded to Win10 vers. 2004 Release Preview, and got classic Edge replaced by the release version of Edge. At least once after boot each day, I'm asked to sign-in and it's quite annoying and time-wasting.

    Managing categories is not very self-evident. It would be nice if it was easier to add and remove categories to default list that one sees when one clicks on Categories in Outlook.com. I went into Manage Categories and clicked on a category to make its star full but the category did not show up in the short list of categories that is revealed when one clicks on categories. So using Outlook.com categories for me now is currently a time wasting exercise, not something that helps my productivity.

    I'm complaining about a link to a OneDrive folder which of itself was pretty lengthy to begin with.

    MS ToDo can access multiple accounts but in Outlook.com can only access account from which I'm signed in (personal), not Office 365, which is my preferred account for Calendar and Tasks but not e-mail. MS should allow mixing and matching as it does within MS ToDo. As usual, schizophrenic nature of MS software where parts are not integrated, are siloed, and do not play well together.

    I like to use Categories for indexing my Outlook items. For recurring events that aren't scheduled in a uniformly repeatable fashion, e.g., the exact date for biannual AC/furnace heating/cooling check, I copy the text of a previous event into creating a new scheduled item. But then I have to manually add the categories that I previously used to characterize the event with the same subject line at some earlier time. It would be useful if Outlook recognized the text as matching a similar earlier event and suggested the same categorization. AI ordering of categories would help, too, because if multiple categories are used, e.g., "Home Maintenance" and "AC/Heating Service," I get different color-coded entries depending upon the order that I add the categories to the item. AI entry in a consistent order would help the color-coding make sense, rather than nonsense as it currently stands.

    Have a way to view (or search for) BLOCKED SENDERS to discover if one has accidentally blocked a valuable sender. The BLOCKED SENDERS does not seem to work very well. I still get messages from the BLOCKED SENDERS so it must be easy to circumvent.

    Right now one can clone and appointment by dragging and dropping an existing appointment while holding down the Control key. That works OK when the date that you want to put the new copy is close in the Calendar to the old copy. But it breaks down when, for example, you're looking at an old copy in a Search hits list or at an old copy some distance away in time from where you'd like to put the new copy. Yeah, one can make a template but that's energy- and time-wasting if all you want to do is one-off a new copy. Office has all these bureaucratic ways of doing things - just make it easy and obvious, - like Apple.

    I can get Copy-and-Paste to work in following nonintuitive way (tested in Month View). Click on appointment you'd like to copy (black box should show around appointment). Use Ctrl+C to copy. Go to date for which you'd like a new copy of the appointment. MOUSE-RIGHT-CLICK on Day. Whole day will now be a highlighted color. Mouse left click on a nearby day. Day that you right-clicked on should still be highlighted. Type "Ctrl+V" and you will paste a new copy of the appointment into that day at the same times the original appointment was scheduled for but now for the new date. If instead, after copying the original appointment, you go to a new date, switch to Day View, and click on a hourly time, the new copy of the event will be rescheduled automatically to start at the new time that you clicked on for the new day but for the same time span as the original appointment.

    Didn't notice default frequency for a new recurring appointment was going to be weekly. After already having picked the End Date, I went to change the frequency from Weekly to Daily but found for some stupid reason desktop Outlook in Office 365 had changed the End Date. Is this productivity? Want to change one thing but other stuff changes willy-nilly? Make stuff work cleanly and straightforwardly with no random, careless side effects or you'll be screwing business productivity world-wide.

    Right now when categorizing an appointment or event if you use more than one category, the event is displayed in the Calendar using the color of the LAST category that you picked. So if you don't always categorize that type of event in the same order with your categories, you get different colors for different occurrences. There ought to be an easy way to get the color to be the same, e.g., have a MAIN category pick designation or be able to drag and drop category order in the dialog form view when editing the event, etc.

    Ridiculous that search is not available for Calendar and when you search in Calendar view, you're given only Mail hits. And Microsoft wonders why Google and Apple are trouncing it in Mobile?!!
