Whether you’ve changed your job title or want to update your phone number, Microsoft Outlook makes it easy to change the content of your email signature. We’ll show you how to edit your signature in the desktop, web, and mobile versions of Outlook.
Remember that changing the email signature on one device does not affect your other devices. For example, if you update your signature on mobile, it will not change your signature on desktop and vice versa. To use the same signature on all your devices, you will need to update the signature individually on each of your devices.

To change the content of your email signature on your desktop, first launch the Outlook application on your computer.
When Outlook opens, in the upper left corner, click “File.” Then in the left sidebar select “Options”.
