Hi 

 

all of a sudden when I click th office app on my taskbar and select Outlook, it now opens outlook in a web browser, it used to open the full 365 Outlook as an application. ,

 

If I search for outlook click the windows tab in the corner of the screen and select Outlook it opens up no problem

@Mawdz09 I have the same issue after running an update. It has wiped my previous email files and only wants to import gmail files. I have tried to recover my previous Outlook email files without success. I will be interested to hear any advice.

@Mawdz09 I have the same problem with Outlook and also with Word and Excel.  Anyone have an answer?

Hey @Mawdz09 ,

 

On first glance, it looks like the taskbar icon got corrupted, try removing the icon from task bar first, right click the icon> unpin from task bar. Next search for outlook, right click outlook app in search results and pin to taskbar.
