OE Disable Preview Pane


Dear Computer Lady,

I enjoy your letters so much. I have gotten quite a few tips from them. A while back you told us how to fix your email that required you to double click it to open.  I did mine and wanted to tell my daughter how to do it and I forgot?? I went back on several issues and could not find it. I usually save the helps that I use but cannot find it.

thank you, Charlotte



Dear Charlotte,

In Outlook Express, click on “View” in the menu bar, and then click on “Layout”.

In The “Window Layout Properties” window, the bottom half of the page is entitled “Preview Pane”. In that section, click to remove the check mark from “Show Preview Pane”.

This will disable the automatic preview and you will need to double click to open each e-mail.
