Answer is new.
Since it a new and a different system the fastest way to learn where things are is to look around a bit.
Check all the menu pull downs, see what is where
Most of the Hotmail functionality is still there just in different places.
The menus in Outlook are context driven.  
That simply means they change to give you the options you need at that moment
When you first open there are only 2 things you can do.
You can click "new" and the menu will change, or you can click on an email, and again the menu will change to help.

Some things are not very obvious like clicking the "to" button once gives favorites, twice gives all contacts.  That also applies to CC & BCC
Also if you click the "#" in the list it displays the letters of the alphabet to choose from. 
 Some things are more obvious like forwarding is under reply.
You can also right click the message then click forward or use ctrl+F
