Home » Here’s how to disable Outlook Focused Inbox

Outlook’s Focused Inbox helps you focus on the emails that matter most to you. This feature divides your inbox into two tabs—Focused and Other. Your most important emails are on the Focused tab. These are selected based on the content of the email and the frequency you interact with the sender.

However, some users don’t like the new inbox hierarchy and want to turn off Outlook Focused.

All of a sudden I have Focused and Other Inbox. I don’t want it. I want my regular Inbox with just one-mail instead of two. How can I get rid of it?

In this article, we’re going to show you how to disable Outlook’s Focused Inbox feature.
