    Don't usually use Hotmail too much but since I have an account on it I'd want to improve my experience. I have successfully turned off the stupid 'Focused' mode back to normal but can't find any way to make the ads (for free) less intrusive.

    There's that one can remove ads by paying but then that defeats the purpose of wanting to get rid of ads without paying. The other way is through Adblock, I reckon but isn't there an option somewhere in Outlook's settings to change it?

    I'd want to try the Light Version of Hotmail/Outlook (it sometimes feel sluggish whereas Gmail is quick) but that's apparently a Web App-exclusive.

    if adblock is not a choice for you, or not that effective.. you have the option to pay a subscription and get rid of the ads

    Well, bummer. I suppose I'll just leave it be then.

    I only use Hotmail for selective things so it doesn't get as much use as my Gmail.

    Use Gmail and redirect your Hotmail emails to your Gmail account. I have a Hotmail email address but only use Gmail to look at it :-p

    Are those selective things for porn websites?

    Nah, more personal/professional things to keep aside from the main account.
