    Yes, you're going to see the search box move around (although it's been a while since I've not seen it at the top) and even the notifications style vary (between compact and huge) when deleting Experiments. Here's a thread on managing the location, and it's quite similar to what we've done...

    It does seem to only go so far, though I never experimented with it before to know the history of it. But this brings up a logical question. Let's say you could get it down to one inch. What good would it be? It would be like making your web browser one inch wide--not that practical.

    I was wrong.

    I've been fooled before, so no guarantees, but I think 16.0.13127.20002 finally fixed the issue.

    The problem has been dragging the border left. If you can't then drag it right (which is increasing the width), something is wrong. Or maybe you mean WAY WAY right? I can drag it right quite a ways, far further than anyone would want to, so I can't imagine you meant that, especially since you...

    @DL777, to my knowledge you can't go that far. All we're talking about here is being able to get it to the point it seems that you've already gotten it. Just a general comment on this thread: Deleting the Registry keys has always introduced some fun variability, like sometimes seeing search on...

    No, it doesn't interfere. It abuts it normally, and when you add a new Quick Access icon it just moves right a bit to accommodate it.

    Yes, the relocation of the search field has proven to be a very, very unpopular forced choice: https://outlook.uservoice.com/forums/322590-outlook-for-windows-desktop-application/suggestions/39046513-search-at-the-top-option But, Sim, just to be clear, it's unrelated to our folder pane issue...

    I try to report things via Help/Feedback but don't really know if that goes anywhere worthwhile. Diane, do you know of anyone who can speak to this issue? I'm still leaning toward it being a bug and not a feature, mainly because I can't think of a single purpose for it as a feature.

    Ah, I see now: since it's in HKCU, you can do it without privileges. If it's HKLM (and probably anywhere else) then you can't. That's great to know!

    The pattern of when they reappear is unpredictable, so I just took to always letting it try to delete them even if they're not there (the batch could be improved by testing to see if they're there, but it all happens in a flash, so it's not worth it). The keys reappear almost always after an...

    I was following on the conversation about using a batch to do the whole thing including running Outlook. You're talking about running a .reg and then running Outlook using the shortcut, which amounts to the same thing but is a different way of going about it. If you do it the batch way, Outlook...

    One enhancement that I made to that batch eventually, once I remembered that Outlook would be running as admin and that that maybe isn't a great idea, is to add this line to the end: nircmd runas machinename\username password "C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Office\root\Office16\outlook.exe"...

    Retail license being Office 2016 or 2019? If so, no, I'm on subscription with Insider. I'm glad to see they're introducing more people to this perfectly sensible feature. I felt guilty hogging it all by myself.

    That page was modified a few days ago, and the entire section that was referring to experimentation was removed. You can still see them in the lone feedback comment though, which I'll reproduce here in case it disappears too: What I've learned since my last comment is that disabling...

    I narrowed the issue to something in the Registry. After a lot of experimentation (no pun intended), it turned out to be this: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/deployoffice/deploy-office-365-proplus-in-gcc-high-dod#additional-settings-to-configure Specifically, the experiments feature.

    Just to report that as of the 16.0.12718.20004 build, that workaround no longer works. I'm curious if you can still accomplish as little separation as you showed in your Oct 1 post, or if the folder names and the unread count are now forcibly socially distanced from each other to the absurd...

    I've resorted to coming up with a deeply stupid "solution" for this weirdness. A batch file that automatically opens Mail in Control Panel, pauses, then runs Outlook.

    Folder pane width change

    Good thought, but no change. It's still luck-of-the-draw (and you may increase your odds with the Control Panel trick). I wonder if this relates to the recent relocation of the Search box. In all my Outlook restarts, I've noticed that it's shifting around. More often than not, when the folder...

    It's the white space to the left of the numbers that's variable. We both have the same Insider version that we get through work (Office 365 subscription). If I'm the only one seeing it though (it doesn't appear that you are), then I guess, somehow, the problem is here. I noticed when testing...
