Switch Back To Classic Outlook


My computer prompted me to update Outlook today and I hit "ok."  I do not have the "switch back to classic" toggle button.  Any way I can switch back?


  • Outlook 365
  • Windows 10


Outlook updated. Once flipped on, the toggle is irrelevant since the "old" version still exists.
