You may have learned how to send an email in Outlook, but how do you pop it out? You may know you can double-click an email and drag it away to delete it, but how do you pop it out?
In this article, you will learn How to set up Outlook to Open Replies and Forwards in a Pop-Out Window instead of a Reading Pane.
What is Popping out an Email in Outlook?
Reply Pop Out is a feature available in Microsoft Outlook that allows users to reply to an email in a separate window rather than in the same window as the original email.
This feature is especially useful for users who need to refer to the original email while composing their replies.
Using Reply Pop Out can improve productivity and efficiency by allowing users to work on multiple emails simultaneously and switch between them easily.
It also helps to reduce the risk of accidentally deleting or losing an email while composing a reply.
The Outlook Pop-Out feature lets you instantly send a message to a recipient without having to open a new email window first.
In case you noticed that when you click an email from your inbox list, to reply or forward, the email expands on the right section of the screen [Refer image: section number 3].
Although double click opens the email in a separate window, now you can simply reply to or forward the email.
