Microsoft 365 apps: Changes for updating the Windows Mail and Calendar apps to the new Outlook for Windows

Microsoft is making changes to the Windows Mail and Calendar apps, transitioning them to the new Outlook for Windows. These changes include updating Taskbar and Start menu pins, desktop shortcuts, and relocating the toggle to switch back to the Mail & Calendar within the new Outlook settings. Beginning in early June 2024, the rollout will proceed, and there is no need for any action to prepare for these updates. 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. The rollout will not impact Mail app pins or shortcuts on devices that already have the new Outlook app installed. The toggle to switch back to Mail & Calendar will be moved from the Ribbon to the About Outlook page in Settings. Windows 10 and 11 users who have the Mail app pinned to the Taskbar and/or Start menu will see the pins replaced with new Outlook if they get the new Outlook app freshly installed on their device. Users who are migrated into the new Outlook from the Mail & Calendar apps will still be able to go back to those applications if they want to. No significant impact on companies is expected.
