Here is a tutorial showing how to hide shopping headers in your inbox on Outlook.com. In some shopping emails, you may get a header with buttons claiming to help you save money and time. Using these buttons, you are navigated to the shopping website, enabling you to shop directly from your Outlook.com Inbox, which eventually saves both time and money. Although Outlook.com only shows shopping headers for senders that Microsoft has recognized as legitimate, you might not like it. So, if you still want to keep your inbox tidy and professional, you can disable shopping headers from your Outlook.com inbox. This post shows exactly how. Let’s check out.
