Seamlessly switch between accounts
The new account manager shows all of your work and personal accounts in one place, and puts you in control of switching between them. This updated experience makes it clear how you’re logged in, and now you can toggle between work and personal accounts without having to sign out first or deal with complex dialogs.

Product icons have a new look
The product icons have been redesigned to reflect simple, powerful, and intelligent Office experiences.
A simplified ribbon that’s customizable too!

Relaxed or tighter layout? Choose what feels best
Tighter Spacing lets you decide if you want more space between items, or a tighter layout to see more in your Inbox.

Your Focused Inbox preferences are now stored in the cloud. Enjoy the same experience when you use Outlook for Windows on any computer or Outlook on the web.
Pick your favorite actions

A favorite Mac feature comes to Windows! Switch to Focus on the View menu to remove distractions and concentrate on the work at hand.
More colorful pages
With the addition of more page theme colors, which allows the changing of the background color of the page, we hope to enable people who have challenges reading with an all-white or all-black background to make adjustments that suit them.
