Microsoft Announces Streamlined Options And Settings Experience In Outlook Web App


Microsoft’s Outlook Web App offers lots of options and settings that allows you to manage Outlook Web App (OWA) the way you want to.  With the today’s update, Microsoft is making the features and settings more discoverable and intuitive. This new navigation tree improves discoverability, provides a cleaner user interface, enhances the experience for tablet users and delivers a scalable framework to let us add future OWA settings with minimal disruption.

  1. As has always been the case, to find the options and settings you need to customize your OWA experience, you click the gear icon in the upper corner of OWA
  2. Today, clicking individual options in the list, or clicking the Options link, opens a pane (pictured below) where you find what you clicked and where you can find the rest of the options and settings that are available to you. Different users might see different options and settings choices depending on how their administrators have configured their experience.
  3. Going forward, when you click an item in the drop-down menu or the Options link, under the gear icon, you’re taken to a new interface (pictured below), where all the options and settings are now available in a single, streamlined, navigation tree on the left.
  4. Click any of the options in the left navigation pane to return to the corresponding settings in the right settings pane.
