    Reading Pane in Mail

    Is there a way to turn off the reading Pane in the "Mail" app?

    Just wondering as its a pain in the arse.

    Can't imagine why would you like it like that but clicking on those 4 lines icon on the top right turns reading pane off.

    When I left click on it my reading pane turns off.
    I can also shrink mail APP from right side so it just shows list of messages without reading pane.

    Clicking on the 4 Lines puts you in Selection Mode , it isn't really like in, for example WLM, where you didn't need to have the reading pane open which checking the message list , but then when you clicked on the message to read it, it opened another window with the message.

    This is not possible with Win10 Mail AFAIK (yet) though I was it was too. On a touch screen ,eg Surface Tablet, you can now double tap the message to open it in the same window but a double click on a desktop doesn't do that , at least for me.

    On my laptop using Mail App if I click on that it closes the link that you would use to open up your web page.

    Are you sure you have already tried all the suggestions posted here ?

    If yes, then please wait a bit longer. I'm sure someone will have a solution for you.
    Thank you.
