Hello,

 

We found that the Search Box was moved into the title bar of our desktop Outlook 365. Is it possible to change its position ?

 

Cheers

Nope. Although they've gone through several iterations on this, so it might change in the future.

I just noticed the new location of the search bar. I dislike it.

In the past, I added several fields (To, From, Subject, Body) to the search field. Using these fields speeds up the search.

The current search bar (in the title bar) annoys me. I don't think it's an improvement.

@TheUltimateBug Always looks off center to me.

At least you can still get to your fields for searching - it's an extra click, but after you click in search you can then click on the 'all mailboxes' - you get your fields and can add.

Still not as convenient.
