I can't see anything, but it seems like something you might want to have if you could see, so not unnecessary per se.
Also.."presence unknown"...what an odd and ominous, portentous error. Hahaha

thanks Brian for the help.

so, if there is a setting to change the scaling and by doing so, funkyness can occur, why is the setting there? I would imagine most users would not expect funky things to happen by changing such an obscure (and unnecessary?) setting.

Subject: presence unknown in Outlook 2016 There is mixing of locations going on here. The Settings, System, Display Pane, Scale and Layout section is where this is found under Windows 10 (or at least most easily and directly). If you literally cannot see the safest thing is to leave scaling at 100%, which is what's recommended.

There can be all kinds of odd offshoots from having text scaled above 100%, though I have no idea if the "Presence Unknown" bit is one of them.

As to sorting contacts in Outlook 2016, it can be done in the same way it always has been done. I sort my contacts on the "File As" field because I want them to sort in Last Name, First Name order. Any column can be selected and then an ascending or descending sort applied.
