This article explains how to show or hide the Bcc (Blind Carbon Copy) address field in the new Outlook app in Windows 11.
The app has many features, including support for email signatures, external email accounts, setting out-of-office automatic replies, email sorting, subscription management, email forwarding, and more.
You can also use Outlook’s Bcc (blind carbon copy) feature to send emails to recipients without their names or addresses visible.
It is a way to send an email to multiple recipients without revealing the other recipients’ identities. When you use BCC, the email appears to be sent only to the person in the To field, while the other recipients are hidden.
This is useful if you want to send a message to multiple people without them knowing who else received the email.
Use Bcc in Outlook
As mentioned above, users can use the Bcc feature in Outlook to send multiple recipients without revealing the other recipients’ identities.
Here’s how to show or hide the Bcc form field in the new Outlook app.
First, open the new Outlook app on Windows 11.
You can do that by clicking Start -> All app -> Outlook app. Or use the Start menu search box to search for Outlook and open it.
When the app opens, click the
New mail button.
Then, on the new email message pane, click the
Bcc button to the right of the To address field to show or display the Bcc address field.
Use the field to type in email addresses you want.
When you send or discard the email, Bcc will not appear again automatically when you click the
New mail button.
If you want the Bcc field to show up always, follow the steps below.
Turn on or off “Always show Bcc” in Outlook
If you always want to show the Bcc field for new emails you want to write, use the steps below.
In the Outlook app, click the
Settings button (gear on the top right) to proceed.
On the Settings page, click the
Compose and reply on the right.
Next, select the email account you want to apply subscription settings if you have multiple accounts in Outlook.
This is an account-level setting that will apply only to the selected account. Please do this for each account you want it to apply.
Next, check the “
Always show Bcc” box to turn on the Bcc field on the new email pane.
To disable or hide the Bcc field, uncheck the box.
Save your changes and reopen Outlook.
That should do it!
