    Outlook.com is testing a new drop down menu

    Microsoft has started to test an update for its many web properties that changes the header bar. The update improves the drop down experience from a large black bar to a cleaner white box that lays on top of the existing content.

    Surely there will be many things similar to other products. Usually it is suggested by people :)

    Saw the changes earlier. I wondered what it was but I just shrugged it off.

    Outlook has a very nice and polished GUI and introduces nice new features like 10GB per file limit, I wanted to use it as a storage solution, but it has strange restrictions, like you have to wait for 2 months to change a password, that is crazy. I am afraid, that I might not be able to access it on day. It is also not very reliable service, it kept loosing my emails in the past.

    Are you sure? I change my password more regularly than every 2 months.

    Well I am still waiting for it, it will be 2 months soon. It says, that it sent a verification email, but it did not, but forwarded emails or adverts go to this email without any problem from outlook. It seems like I always have some mysterious problems with outlook, no matter what, I guess, that Microsoft does not like me not surprised after all the negative feed back I regularly give.

    EDIT: I have explained it bad, I can not change password at all, I had to input my phone number, hopefully, I will be able to do it than, not sure, I can not use another email either. The problem is, if I would have a problem accessing my account, I could not recover it and that scares me obviously.

    Ahh I see what you mean. Yes - I always get a code sent by sms if I change password or if I use a PC in a new country. You have to enter only the last 4 digits of your phone number.

    You can set up an alternate e-mail address if you prefer and it will send the code there but I prefer the phone option.
