If there is one thing I yearn for year after year it’s a unified inbox for Outlook on Windows. I know it can be done as the feature exists on Outlook for Mac and even MacOS Mail app has the same feature.
I want to know what is causing this from being implemented into Outlook for Windows? Is it a programming limitation that cannot combine the inboxes of multiple Exchange accounts?
I have a big gripe with Microsoft with the way they split features over their software meant for everyday home users (OneDrive Personal) with the way they only allow you to save screenshots to your personal OneDrive account. Ideally, I think it would be very beneficial if you also had the option to save it to your OneDrive for Business account. I will never understand Microsoft’s decision-making process because it is very backward. It’s not intuitive at all.
For quite some time I enjoyed the feature of Windows 10 account sync. I could sync I favorites, wallpaper, I believe certain passwords, and app settings. I also found that I could sync these same settings with a computer joined to an Active Directory domain. It appears that you no longer can do this.
It wasn’t until maybe a few months ago that I realized my syncing stopped working. I had to do a clean install on my home workstation, and as soon as I got Windows reinstalled, Windows asked me to sign in with a Microsoft account or a Work account. I signed in with my Work account thinking I’d be able to continue then syncing everything from my home workstation to my office workstation. I soon found out that it is not possible anymore. You have to completely avoid using a Work account if you plan to use Microsoft’s sync feature. Why? I don’t know. In my honest opinion, Microsoft loves to give their business customers the middle finger when it comes to these kinds of things. I wish more companies would blur the line between business and customer features. Alternatively, give it to us both! It worked once before, and I’m not sure why they stopped it.
Another thing that pains me is the way they make a distinction between a “Microsoft Account” and a “Work Account aka Office 365 account”, what’s the difference? One’s free from Microsoft, and the other is an account WE PAY FOR! We’re giving Microsoft money, and they decide to take features AWAY from us or punish us for using a certain type of account!
