Hi Diane and Happy New Year!
I use tasks a lot to keep my life organized
On some of my machines, outlook adds no additional formatting
On others, outlook adds formatting that I find unhelpful
Please see examples below and tell me where I can find the option to turn off this unhelpful added formatting
Thank you!

Thanks Diane
I can tell you it is happening on 2 machines with Home and Business 2019
And not occurring on 2 machine with Home and Business 2019
It is plain text and yes, only tasks are affected

Another wrinkle to the problem
It seems that opening a task in Microsoft To Do: List, Task & Reminder on my Android device is what is causing the reformatting of the text
But only on half of my machines
There must be some setting in Outlook that is allowing this reformatting to occur on two of the 4 PCs

I don't think there is a setting in to-do or outlook. Once you open the task on the phone, is the task format changed to plain text on all machines?

It changes on 2 machines and not on the other 2
