Navigation Pane is on the left instead of the bottom of the Folder List

After an update of Office, Outlook now displays the navigation buttons for Mail, Calendar, Contacts, Tasks, etc.

on the left side next to the Folder List.

These Navigation buttons used to be displayed within the Folder List at the bottom.



Move the Navigation & App Bar with Coming Soon

Coming Soon button

To move the Navigation & App Bar between the left side of the Folder List and within the Folder List, you can 

no longer use the Coming Soon toggle in the top right corner of Outlook.



As this feature has become the new default, the Coming Soon toggle is now controlling a different new feature

or is no longer available to you at all.


You can access this toggle: 

  • File-> Options-> Advanced-> disable: Show Apps in Outlook



NOTE: Be aware that this also removes the ability to get the full Microsoft To-Do app experience within Outlook.
