On the new Outlook app for Windows 11 (and 10), you can change the notification settings, and in this guide, you will learn how. Microsoft has a new version of the Outlook app to replace the Mail and Calendar apps (and the classic desktop version of Outlook) with a design based on the web experience, and as part of the customization settings, the email client allows you to manage various notifications settings.
For example, you can choose when the application should play sound for notifications, and you can customize which type of events the email client should show desktop notifications.
This guide will teach you the steps to change notification settings for the new Outlook app on Windows 11.
