Microsoft Outlook is an email management system that offers users various features to make their work experience more streamlined and user-friendly. These features include email scheduling, Quick Parts (which allows users to copy the text of one message and use it in another), new item alerts, the ability to ignore messages, and file attachment reminders. It is also well-known for its magnificent data privacy and control systems, allowing users to set strong passwords and recovery options, and preventing viruses from damaging files.

Recently, however, Microsoft has pushed an update for Outlook that caused the navigation toolbar to be moved from the bottom of the window to the left side of the screen. This change was not accepted positively by a lot of users and many of them are asking for the toolbar to be moved back to the bottom of the window.

There are some ways that you can move the toolbar in Outlook back to its original location on the bottom of the screen. One way is to use the built-in Outlook options menu, which is available in most versions of the program. The other method involves making a change to the Windows Registry. This process is quite delicate and could cause serious issues if done incorrectly, so we recommend that you back up your Registry before starting this procedure. Once you have backed up your Registry, you can follow the steps below to return the navigation bar to its original location in Outlook.
