The following article demonstrates how to find out what version of Microsoft Outlook you are using. As different versions of Outlook have different settings and menus, being aware of which version of Outlook you are running will enable you to determine which support articles are relevant to you. 


Finding out which version of Outlook you are running depends on if you have “Help” from the menu bar.

If “Help” is available from the Menu bar:

Click “Help” and then “About Microsoft Office Outlook”.
