Microsoft has now updated the Outlook for Mac with the Full Screen view for OS X Yosemite and above. To switch to Full Screen view, simply click the button at the top left of your Outlook screen or use keyboard shortcut keys Ctrl + + F.
Other highlights from this feature,
- When you want to perform a task, such as replying to an email thread or composing a new message, a new window is displayed in focus view, so you can concentrate on the task at hand.
- If you need to go back to the inbox when working on the message, simply click outside the focus window to minimize the message and gain access to the inbox. A tab with the subject of the minimized message appears at the bottom of the screen to allow you to access the message quickly. The Tab bar at the bottom allows you to navigate among the minimized messages.
- In Full Screen view, you can also view two messages side-by-side so that you can easily copy and paste content from one message to another. To do so, open one message window in focus view and then bring up any message minimized on the Tab bar. In the current design, we show you at most two message windows in focus view to avoid clutter.
- With native support for Full Screen view, Outlook as a Split View app for OS X El Capitan just works! You no longer need multiple monitors to view different Outlook modules. You can conveniently combine different modules in Split View to fit your workflow.
This is now available in the January update.
