Enable hardware acceleration in Outlook post 2022 update

If you still need to alter Hardware Acceleration settings to diagnose a rendering issue, you can do so through the following Windows settings:
Choose which Graphics Adapter Office apps use:

  • Navigate to: Settings > Display > Graphics Settings
  • From here you can add a Desktop application using the “Browse” button.
  • For each Desktop application clicking “Options” will allow you to override which GPU is used when there are multiple GPUs on the machine.

Disable one or more Graphics Adapters via Device Manager:

  • Navigate to: Start > Device Manager
  • Expand the “Display Adapters” node
  • Right-click and choose “Disable device” on the Graphics Adapter you wish to disable.
  • If all Graphics adapters are disabled, Windows will default to Software rendering via the Microsoft Basic Display Adapter.
