SOLVED

revert to legacy outlook

Copper Contributor

I am not happy using the outlook app and want to go back to the legacy outlook.  I do not have the toggle displayed to revert.  How can I resolve this problem permanently. I found a way yesterday but when I open outlook this morning the app is the only option available

Hi Peter,

The new Outlook Desktop App preview is using "olk.exe" and the Classic Outlook Desktop App "outlook.exe".

Please open a run box (Windows+R) > Type "outlook.exe" > Press "OK" to start the Classic Outlook Desktop App.

Thank you for your response, you are right I had two outlooks in the system, it was the outlook pre that was causing the problem. All has now been resolved thanks to Microsoft Support

The old Outlook is not available for download in Microsoft store for me to revert to it. It seems like i am not the only one who wants to revert to the old one.
