Open an Outlook Express email message in its own window

Open an Outlook Express email in its own window When you are inside Outlook Express, your email messages are visible inside the selected email folder, on the right, with the Reading Pane optionally displayed at the bottom, so that you read each email without opening it in a new window. But, especially if you are using a computer with a small screen resolution (like a netbook), it is much nicer to be able to open an email message to read it in its own window; in fact, for those who read their emails like this, Outlook Express includes some functionality that allows you to navigate from one email to another, delete the current message, or move it to a folder, right from the new email window - in other words, no need to be in the main Outlook Express window itself!

Open email messages in full screen view

Follow these steps to read your emails outside Outlook Express:

Tip: whether the toolbar is visible or not at the top of the window, you can use keyboard shortcuts to navigate from one email message to the other inside the current folder:

• Press Ctrl+< to go to the previous message.
• Press Ctrl+> to read the next message.

• Press Ctrl+U to read the next unread email message in the folder. (Note: when you are composing an email, and are inside the message body, pressing Ctrl+U toggles underlined text on or off.)

And this is how you can open an Outlook Express email message in a new window, and take care of all your email management tasks outside the main email program itself!
