How to remove App Search in Outlook by reverting to previous Outlook version

If you're experiencing issues with the app search bar in Outlook, you can try removing it by reverting back to the previous version of Outlook. This bug can be fixed by following a few technical steps.

First, make sure to exit all Office applications before proceeding. Then, go to the Start menu and search for Command Prompt. Right-click on it and select "Run as administrator." This will open the Command Prompt dialog window.

In the Command Prompt window, you'll need to type two command lines. Make sure to press Enter after each command line. Here are the commands you need to enter:

  1. Type the first command line and press Enter. This will take you to the "Click to Run" directory.
  2. Copy the second command line and paste it in the Command Prompt window. This command will revert you to the previous stable version of Outlook.

Once you've entered both commands, wait for the repair process to complete. After that, you can open Outlook and go to File > Office Account. From there, you'll need to disable updates.

By disabling updates, you prevent Outlook from automatically updating to the version with the bug. However, it's important to note that Microsoft has promised to release a fix for this issue on February 13th. So, make sure to check for updates on that date.

Following these steps should help you remove the app search bar in Outlook and revert to the previous version. It's always a good idea to keep your software up to date, but in this case, temporarily disabling updates can provide a workaround until the bug is fixed.
