    What if there is no option for “hide icon when minimized” when you right click the outlook icon in the system tray? All I can see is unpin and open microsoft outlook. I am using windows 7.

      Make sure right click in your system tray (sometimes hidden under an arrow).

    • I think that’s happening because you’re clicking the Outlook logo on the left side. you need to click the Outlook logo on the system tray (which is on the RIGHT side- by the time)…
