Thanks, Russell, I will try that. I had gotten the message "Bad request" when I tried the manual method, but I had removed the question mark. Thanks for that clarification.

Hi Pam,

I wasn’t able to find the Settings link either, but, by following the below manual steps, it temporarily puts you in the light version. From there you just need to look for an “Options” link, click on that, go to Outlook versions, enter on that, and then check “Change to light version” or something similar. You must then arrow up to the save button and enter on it, log out and then the next time you log in, you should be in the light view. Make sure you delete everything after the question mark (?) in the URL, but not the question mark itself before you enter layout=light. Good luck.

Manual method:
After signing in by whatever method (probably outlook.yourinstitution.com<http://outlook.yourinstitution.com><http://outlook.yourinstitution.com>), look at the address bar, it will probably start with something like the following: https://outlook.office365.com/owa/?blahblahblah
Just go and delete the blahblahblah part, and put in layout=light, so the new address would be https://outlook.office365.com/owa/?layout=light

Can someone please tell me how to find the settings gear that is referenced in these links?

I went back to using Internet Explorer 8 because the mail interface changed so drastically and became too inefficient. It still works fine there, but I would like to go to IE 11.

I am trying to change to the light interface using Firefox or Chrome in order to test that, but I am not finding the settings.

Thanks for any help.

Pam

Hi,

Here are the instructions.
If the following websites instructions don’t work by changing it in the settings, then try the below directions:
Proper way, via settings:

Hi,

Yes, I can second the advice to switch to the Light version of Outlook web
access. My workplace also just moved from Groupwise to Outlook last week,
and thankfully a friend had told me earlier about the Outlook Light version.
It works great.

Good luck.

Hello, I have found that by far, the most helpful and important option
to change is in Options, outlook version, and to use the lite mode.
Then, you are not presented with Tree Views which are highly difficult
to navigate, but a more typical interface, very similar to Gmail's
Basic HTML version, all check boxes and links are very clearly
labeled, and Outlook on the web in lite mode is very useable.
Thanks.
