Details:
Microsoft is updating the default Windows email and calendar applications, transitioning from Mail & Calendar to the new Outlook for Windows.
These include:
1. Changes to the Mail app Windows Taskbar, Start menu pins and Desktop shortcuts:
Mail app pins on the Windows Taskbar and Start menu, as well as the Mail app Desktop shortcut will be replaced with new Outlook for Windows, if the new Outlook app is freshly installed on a Windows 10 or Windows 11 device. There will be no change to the Calendar app pins. This will not impact Mail app pins or shortcuts on devices that have new Outlook already installed. There will be no change if the new Outlook app is not installed on the device.
2. Changes to the new Outlook for Windows toggle:
The toggle in new Oulook that end users access to go back to the Mail & Calendar app will be moved from the Ribbon, where it is currently located, to the About Outlook page in Settings.
