Technical Bulletin MC427760 · Published Sep 8, 2022

Message Summary

Outlook on the web is updating where some message-compose options are located, depending on how you use Outlook.

1. For all users – The formatting bar will be relocated to the top of the message compose window, similar to the common “ribbon” you see in other Microsoft apps.

2. For all users – When composing a new email message, the “Send”, “Discard”, and formatting bar will now be located at the top of the compose window.

3. For users with “newest on top” option – When you reply to a message, the “Send”, “Discard”, and formatting bar will be located at top of the compose window.

Previously, those buttons and bar were located at the bottom of the message compose window.

This update will make the experiences across web and both classic and new Outlook for Windows have a similar UX.

The shortcut to send an email message will not change.
