Outlook 365 Task Bar on Left-

Did the TASK BAR in Outlook suddenly move the left-hand side?

This happens in Office365/Outlook365 as part of Microsoft's continuous updates and feature upgrades. This upgrade is intended to be permanent and cannot be turned off.

However, to put the Outlook Task Bar back in the proper place at the bottom:

  • -click START
  • -type CMD
  • -in the command prompt, type (copy/paste):

reg add "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Office\16.0\Common\ExperimentEcs\Overrides" /t REG_SZ /v "Microsoft.Office.Outlook.Hub.HubBar" /d "false"

Note that since this is a CURRENT-USER change, it happens as the current user; do not run AS-ADMIN or else you will be changing the ADMINISTRATOR account and not the account that is currently being used.
