Oktokolo3816307dEven Microsoft hates Windows and MS Office. They try to get people to switch to some Linux and Libre Office, so they can finally let the legacy crap die.
thatDude597307d@electrineer , exactly.
I was forced with the Outlook update. I didn't need any new features, but now there's extra space between emails in the list. I see less emails now, than I used to. Why? How do I get rid of it? What's the magic hidden option?
How come Thunderbird made tree sorting of emails work 20 years ago, but Outlook still has no clue how to do it?
qwwerty772307din case of outlook:
view > change view > compact
advanced > other setting > fonr size
won't help much, but at least something
But yeah, i hate most of the ribbon related changes too. Generally, any attempts to push touch-styled UI into desktop applications.
thatDude597306d@qwwerty , Had to check. I was already "compact" :(
Ok, one could use some other email client. But then there's the calendar, creating meetings with Teams invites etc. Microsoft has managed to secure their positin...
They should just open the protocols to everyone and let people do their own clients.
thatDude597306dIt seems that you need to click View-tab and then click frm Layout "Use Tighter Spacing" to get back the tight view.
So, it's nice that updates just ignore you previous setup and overwrite them with their own. I am supprised that it didn't force me that stupid "focused" email view this time...
