UPDATE:

This tutorial will show you how to turn on or off trying the new Outlook for Windows preview app on demand from the Mail and Calendar app for your account in Windows 10 and Windows 11.

The new Outlook for Windows brings the latest features, intelligent assisted capabilities and a new modern and simplified design to your Outlook app. You can tailor it to your style and do more with new Outlook for Windows.

Starting in June 2023, Microsoft is beginning the process of migrating existing Windows Mail, Calendar, and People users to the new Outlook for Windows.

Beginning in 2024, Windows 11 devices will be shipped with the new Outlook for Windows as the default mailbox application free for all to use. The Mail and Calendar apps will continue to be available via download in the Microsoft Store through the end of 2024. On existing devices, users can switch to the new Outlook for Windows from a toggle in the Mail and Calendar apps.

If your accounts are supported in the new Outlook, you will see a toggle in the upper right of the Mail app in Windows 10 and 11 to Try the new Outlook. This option downloads the new app and switches your preferred email client. You can switch back to Windows Mail and Calendar whenever you want.

The new Outlook for Windows is for everyone. Now everyone with Windows gets the best of Outlook built into Windows for free. No subscription needed. You will write better emails with advanced AI built into the new Outlook for Windows to help you write impactful, clearer, mistake-free messages. New Outlook for Windows can also help remind you to follow up on important conversations. Other great features of the new Outlook for Windows include:
  • Streamline accounts. Now everyone can access their emails—in one spot—on every Windows device. That’s Gmail, Yahoo! and even a place for that account you use for shopping.
  • Stay on top of things. Organize your appointments, share availability and events with a click, and ensure time for important people and events.
  • Feel secure. Trust in Microsoft’s security to help keep your emails and documents safe from phishing and scams.
  • Accomplish more. Enjoy Microsoft 365 free on the web and use Word, Excel, PowerPoint and OneDrive with the click of a button.
  • Stay organized. File your valuable content neatly or find it simply with universal search, make your calendar yours with multiple options and personalization capabilities, and know when your packages will arrive with package tracking.
  • Unify your accounts. The new Outlook for Windows brings several advantages when it comes to managing your emails and calendars. For example, you can now view your various emails and calendar events in one place, making it easier to stay organized. This is also great for people who have accounts from multiple providers, as they can access them all from one unified inbox.
Starting with Windows 11 build 25977 (Canary), Mail and Calendar will no longer be installed after doing a clean install using the provided ISOs here. This ONLY applies for clean installs of Build 25977 and higher in the Canary Channel today. Mail and Calendar will not be removed on upgrade for Insiders in the Canary Channel. You can click here to learn more about the future of Mail and Calendar in Windows.

The Outlook for Windows preview app is currently available to try for Microsoft and Gmail accounts only.

I am totally with you on that. But our days are numbered, apparently. So do we turn it back on and swallow that pill until we are comfortable using it, or switch to another app?

My “extreme” opinion here;

OK, I watched the video, and it seems to me that this is more slanted toward corporations than end users.

Ummm, I gotta think on that for awhile. From the video, I understand we may have a couple years yet with classic Outlook. I jumped right into Windows 11 from Windows 10, but it wasn't nearly as ugly as the new Outlook!

A couple questions . . . Will we be able to use the new Outlook on one computer while using classic Outlook on another?

The video gave some instructional URLs that I want to check out, as well as some blogs to check out.

That will have to happen tomorrow, since it's getting quite near my bedtime.

From what I gather “Costumer feedback” (corporations?) dictates that it is too complicated, with I think they said “5 different platforms“ for Outlook currently used? I also got the hint that integration across the platforms was the intended end. One outlook. But then again, I read a lot into what they aren’t or are partially saying. Seems to me that they will be sending 4 platforms to their graves.

This is useless, I do not even get Notifications from new mail. I do with the old one. Just one more reason to not use MS Apps!

I believe the new Outlook for Windows is a web based application. MS is replacing a desktop [in my and my wife's case] version of Outlook which is part of my MS 365 subscription. We have been using desktop Outlook for a very long time and it is how we communicate with a lot of our friends and businesses. I think we are a reasonably good pattern for a lot of general home users. Now think about replacing that with a web based mail application that has its roots in Outlook.com. Then tell your users they can switch back and forth and keep track of their emails and accounts.
Horsefeathers. I have and will take steps to hold Outlook for Windows off as long as I can. Meantime I will start looking for a desktop office application that meets my needs. Take a look at Outlook.com to get a taste of what Outlook for Windows [extended and modified] might be like.
My Two Cents worth.

I have installed “BlueMail” which is a cross-platform email client, working equally well on Win11 or Linux Mint 21.3. I have removed the intrusive MS Edge, so… It appears that Outlook will not function without MS Edge being installed.
My wife and I have found “Mail and Calendar” to be a less confusing email client for Gmail, consolidating the multiple inboxes into just one inbox. Now that it is gone, we have moved to “BlueMail” for our Gmail client.

Microsoft has been spanked for doing this before, you may remember it?
Yes, I do remember, and they deserve another spanking!
It's the dictating of apps I must use, and apps I cannot use, that encourages me to primarily stay on Linux. “Open Source” does not discriminate!
Of course, there are some apps that are only on Windows.

I 100% agree, they seem to be testing the waters, especially after that case put them to bed for a while.
I don’t begrudge Windows from making changes to their software that aren’t always favorable, but I do object to being forced into a corner. 🙏
