Microsoft Outlook 2013 download

Microsoft’s flagship email program shows its age If you think Microsoft Outlook 2013 will have some dramatic new features and enhancements like other applications in Office 2013, you’re sure to be wrong. Microsoft Outlook 2013 remains largely the same as the 2010 version. Here’s what has changed:

The whole app has a more appealing look, which matches the design language of Windows 8. The whole app is monochrome, with lots of white and gray with occasional blue accents. For me, this color scheme makes it difficult to distinguish certain interface elements. No more icons and everything is heavy text. At the bottom you will find sections for mail, calendars, people, tasks and more. There are already buttons and icons, which give way to minimalist text (function () {(‘review-app-page-desktop’);});

Touch is available in Microsoft Outlook 2013 which offers the same menu as in other Office 2013 applications. This is nice and gives Microsoft Outlook 2013 a nice touch experience.

You can now pin to increase the calendar to switch between day, week, and month views. If you are in a part of Microsoft Outlook 2013 other than your calendar, you can now hover over the calendar section to download your calendar and tasks throughout the day. The calendar will also display weather information for your location.

Microsoft Lync is still fully integrated into Microsoft Outlook 2013 so you can see the status of your collaborator and start audio or video calls from Microsoft Outlook 2013.

Although the mail display is a bit difficult to read due to the monochrome color scheme, the overview of Microsoft Outlook 2013 is much better. The link will now extract data from online sources such as Facebook and Linkedin if you have already linked this service to your Microsoft account.

Microsoft Outlook 2013 will combine dual connections, creating a unique contact card with a combination of data. If your contact has a picture, the picture will appear like a thumb next to the link. Strangely, Microsoft did not include it in the Microsoft Outlook 2013 e-mail display, which will help visually distinguish different e-mail addresses.

Even more confusing is the lack of sequential messages in Microsoft Outlook 2013. You still need to find your previous chat email. Surprisingly, the Microsoft Mail application in Windows 8 and Windows RT contains threaded messages.

Another annoying change is the Microsoft Outlook 2013 notification. There is no way to delete it in bulk, so you will close many alerts if Microsoft Outlook 2013 returns to the network. Microsoft has also removed the ability to act via email from notifications, which is a very useful feature.

If you don’t like Outlook 2010, Microsoft Outlook 2013 won’t win you over. While there are some useful new features, the boring interface and missing features make Office 2013 feel like an old-fashioned email client.
