RantOutlook 365 - changing the subject line Pin

Just about everything about Office 365 sucks, in my opinion. Teams, Outlook, etc. Slack, for example, is so much more intuitive and easy to use. Take the example of adding another person to a chat conversation. You'd think the button would be over on the left side where the list of people are. No. It's on the far right, in the "conversation" section of the window. And it's a tiny and obscure icon. You'd think maybe right-clicking on the current person would bring up a "Would you, dear user who knows better than me, like to add another person to this conversation and can I do that for you as easily and simply as possible?" But noooo. And don't even get me started on the pathetic space utilization of the conversation window itself, where it seems the Microsoft UI designers have a specific psychological disorder to left justification, to maximizing width, well, to about anything that actually is visually usable. It seems like they are still designing for 640x480 EGA on 30lb CRT's.

Or simple things like, ok, I click that icon. Does the cursor position itself on the edit box where I can type in the name of the person I want to add? No. So all that typing I just did went into the lost keystroke bitbucket alongside dirty socks. Click on icon. Click on edit box. Sigh.

But to my point -- I often find an email by some keyword because I don't remember the person's name or email address (infrequent emails spanning several months), so I find the relevant email, hit reply, and edit the subject line.

Except I can't edit the subject line. Outlook doesn't let you change the subject like on a reply. WTF??? In GMail, you just click on the subject like to change it. And googling yields nothing useful. Even if it's me, 365 still sucks. Laugh | :laugh:

Office 365 - 365 days a year of annoyance, frustration, sh*tty user interface, yadayadayada Mad | :mad:
