Using Microsoft To-Do with Outlook.com

If you're logging in to Outlook.com with a personal Microsoft account, then you can simply click the check mark icon to access Microsoft To-Do directly from the tasks pane on Outlook.com. 

Please know, however, that Microsoft To-Do does not currently support certain features available in Outlook Tasks, like the start and end dates, task status, task completion percentage, priority levels, task work hours, task colors, option to format text in notes, or file attachments. If you would prefer to use these features, you can access Outlook Tasks in the tasks pane by toggling The new Tasks off in the top right corner.
