Outlook - Remove blue tip boxes

Lars Olsen 111 Reputation points


When a user logs on with a fresh userprofile, the following 3 boxes are shown.

Is there a way to disable them? Something in the registry maybe?

I want them gone...

    I found this post helpful to try and get rid of these items in a non-persistent environment.


    2 more :

    We are finding more as the days goes on.
    If a users gets a new one I just check in the registry what new entry there is and add them to our GPO.
    Should be in the Office 16 admx files, but yeah this is the MS way.

    Hi @Lars Olsen ,

    Welcome to our forum. As far as these New feature blue tip Boxes, as you know, it would only display when you first login to the new userprofile. I guess it's aimed to make it more easier and faster for users to get the feature in Outlook, and so sorry for the inconvenience caused to you.

    Based on my research, I have checked all settings in my Outlook, there seems to no option that could close or disable them permanently. I also have tried to research a lot in the point of Register Editor but still haven't found any related settings. So for your requirment of disabling them, we would like to recommend you to please provide your ideal feedback via Microsoft UserVoice service. Our developer team regularly reviews ideas to consider in the design and development of future product updates. We appreciate the time you take to share them with us and hope that in the near future, this feature can be included. Thanks for your support and understanding.

    I have the same proplem on Intune managed computers and it scares me that we are on O365 current channel but still Office admin templates are shown as 2016 version. I believe it is the same thing in AD / Group Policies. I have these enabled, but still I am seing same screen. Does O365 still honor v16 registry?
