A recent addition to Outlook.com, Joyful Animations enlivens your email correspondence with animated expressions of greetings, compliments, and felicitations.
While some users may find this feature fun and charming, others may prefer a more subdued email experience.
When Outlook detects “joyful” words like “Congratulations” or “Happy Birthday,” it displays a shower of glitter.
How Joyful Animated Works?
When you open a mail in the reading pane of the Outlook web app, any words deemed “joyful” expressing surprise or strong emotion (like Congratulations, Happy Birthday, etc.) are highlighted and a shower of glitter is displayed when you move your mouse over them.
Important Note: These animations are only available in the modern version of the Outlook web app. Outlook application users are unable to enjoy this feature.
How to Disable Joyful Animated?
Step 1: – Open Outlook.com from your browser.
Step 2: – Sign in, enter your Email Address and Password, and hit “Enter“.
Step 3: – Click on setting gear from the top right corner of the screen >> then click view all outlook settings.
Step 4: – Click on ‘Email‘ settings from the left navigation section, and then click ‘Compose and reply.’ from the right navigation pane.
Step 5: – Another additional option appears, scroll down, uncheck the “Show joyful animations in the reading pane” check box, and then click Save.
From now onwards joyful animation feature is no longer active.
