Welcome to Chapter 8, "Discussing the Customization of Outlook." We'll start with the Navigation Pane located in the lower left corner. No doubt, you're already familiar with it, but did you know that it can be modified. To start with, we can decrease the size of the Navigation Pane. If I grab the horizontal bar here I can pull down and this collapses the large buttons into small icons. What's handy about this is it provides more room for the folders and your mailbox. Further, by clicking on this arrow, I can decide which buttons are actually displayed in the Navigation area.
If I'm not using Notes, the Folder List or Shortcuts, I can turn them off. Now my Navigation Pane is far simpler. You'll note that, even if we disable the button for Folders, Notes or Shortcuts we can always access them from the Go menu above. Speaking of customizing panes, let's check out the next video on customizing other panes within Outlook.
