Customize actions on your messages in Outlook.com

You can choose which actions will appear at the top corner of your message when you select a message to read, as well as those that will appear on the message toolbar when you’re composing a message. You can add many actions, or just a few.

Some actions are selected by default, but you can clear them if you prefer.

Customize actions

  1. At the top of the page, select Settings Settings > View all Outlook settings.

  2. Select Mail > Customize actions.

  1. Select the check boxes for the actions you want. They’ll appear at the top corner as you select them.

  2. To change the order in which they appear, select them in a different order.

  3. Select Save.
