Removing App Search Bar in Outlook - it’s easy

Removing the app search bar in Outlook has never been easier. If you're facing this issue, there are a couple of simple fixes you can try. Microsoft has announced that an official fix will be released on February 13th, so keep an eye out for an update. In the meantime, here are two workarounds that you can use.

  1. Remove the reading pane:
  • Tap on the "View" tab in Outlook.
  • Go to "Reading Pane Layout" on the right.
  • Move the reading pane to the bottom or turn it off completely.
  1. Revert to the previous build of Microsoft Office (more technical):
  • Open the command prompt as an administrator.
  • Enter the two command lines provided in the video transcript.
  • Disable all future updates until a fixed update is available.

Until February 13th, you can try one of these two methods to temporarily resolve the issue. Remember to double-check on February 13th by visiting the official Microsoft page mentioned in the video transcript. Look for any indication that the issue has been fixed before proceeding with the update.

It's worth noting that there are numerous replies and suggestions from users in support forums and community posts, but most of them offer the same solutions that may not work. For reliable information, it's best to refer to the official Microsoft blog.

In conclusion, removing the app search bar in Outlook is a simple task. Although there may be temporary workarounds before the official fix is released on February 13th, it is advisable to follow Microsoft's guidance for a reliable and permanent solution. Stay updated and make sure to check the official Microsoft page for any announcements regarding the fix.
