"View Settings" Menus Removed throughout Windows Desktop Outlook 2016? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Just updated to office 365 build 1710 8625.2121 today and found a big change in Windows Desktop Outlook 2016: it appears that the "View Settings" menu has been removed from all the places it used to be, e.g. : by right-clicking the labels at the top of any view, or by going to the View ribbon in any view. Is this a bug or a feature change? If an intended feature change it's a huge step backwards. See image below for View ribbon change before and after. Anyone know what's up?

  • Hi mikelinen,

    Thanks for reporting this problem.

    This is a known issue that after updating to the Monthly Channel Version 1710 (8625.2121) build or higher, the View Settings button is missing. 

    Microsoft is aware of this issue and working on a fix. In the meantime, you can try the following workaround:

    1. On the ribbon, click View > Change View.

    2. Right-click one of the views, such as Compact or Preview, and click View Settings.

    For the most recent information on this issue, go to Missing View Settings button in Outlook 2016.

    Hope you can find the above information helpful.

    Best regards,
    Yuki Sun
