Welcome to chapter 8, discussing the customization of Outlook. To start with, we can change the height of the Navigation Pane. If I place my mouse pointer here, I can drag up or down. If I drag down all the way, I'll give myself more room for my Inbox and other folders. Notice how the icons are now representing each of the navigation sections of Outlook. We can also disable buttons that we don't intend to use. For example, how often do you use the Shortcuts link or the Folder List? To customize this, pull down the little arrow here, choose Navigation Pane Options, and uncheck anything you don't plan to use.
Note that even if we disable the button for folders, shortcuts, tasks, or notes, we can always access them directly from the Go To Folder dialog box, by pressing Ctrl+Y. Speaking of customizing panes, let's check out the next video on customizing the other panes within Outlook.
