Join Gini von Courter for an in-depth discussion in this video Use the Reading pane, part of Outlook 2016: Efficient Email Management.
- [Voiceover] When I'm looking at messages,…I like having Outlook's preview pane,…which is called the Reading Pane,…displayed over here on the right-hand side.…So that I don't need to open up messages…to be able to view them.…When the Reading Pane, which is controlled…on the View tab, in the Layout group,…is turned off,…then I get a preview of a message,…but to see the message I actually need…to double-click to open it.…And that takes a little extra time.…I can adjust the width of the Reading Pane…by dragging the gray separator.…
And if I prefer, I can put the Reading Pane…at the bottom of the screen.…Some people like this, because they get…a wide view of the messages.…And if you were going to do that,…then you would adjust it by dragging the gutter here…to provide more or less space.…But, for me, I like a fairly large list…here in my information viewer,…and I like to be able to see most of a message…here on the right.…An added feature of the Reading Pane…in the more recent versions of Outlook,…is that I can Reply, Reply All or Forward,…
