How to Add an Email Signature in New Outlook for Windows

Important:

The new Outlook for Windows doesn’t support pasting email signatures the conventional way. Attempting to paste an email signature will cause the formatting to be lost and some images to become large. Please read the installation instructions below to learn how to install an email signature correctly in the new Outlook for Windows.

Step 1:

Once you are ready to set up your email signature, open the New Outlook for Windows. From the menu bar at the top, click the Settings icon.

If the email signature is not already selected, be sure to select it by focusing on the window and pressing CTRL+A on your keyboard.

Click and drag the selected email signature into the area where the signature goes in the Outlook Settings window.
