Question

What is Foucsed Inbox? How can I turn it off?

Answer

Focused Inbox is a new feature recently introduced by Microsoft that helps to filter your email so that you only see what you want to see be focusing on the messages that matter most to the user. Think of it as the "opposite of Clutter". While Microsoft generally does a good job of sorting messages, if you want to be sure that you are seeing all of your emails, all of the time, you can turn off the feature by following the instructions below. 

  1. Select Filter to open the dropdown menu.
  2. In the dropdown, Show Focused Inbox should have a checkmark next to it.
  3. Select Show Focused Inbox to deselect and remove the checkmark.
  4. Focused Inbox should now be turned off
